Crochet is tactile & textural, fibrous (from thread to bulky yarn to jute, even strips from t-shirts). I like – no, I need – to include these & more in my repertoire. To feel the texture of soft fibers slipping through my fingers; to experiment with color; to alter existing patterns into a design of my own. Each item needs to be unique, and I’m “hooked”!
Joining loops of yarn together satisfies those needs and results in wearable art. Ponytail/messy bun hats are all the rage, and I hear that giant extreme scarves are the next trend!
I started crocheting when my five children were young, mostly to maintain sanity and to have a hobby that could be done while sitting on bleachers or in a rocking chair. Now that they are independent, I crochet as MKM Creations; with occasional timeouts for writing, painting, drawing, crafting; whatever demands my attention and fulfills my need to create.
