My awesome mom taught me to crochet at a very young age, maybe 6 or so? I think one of my first projects was a custom “nose warmer” for my favorite Uncle, a mechanic.
I have too much yarn. An unhealthy addiction. If there were rehab for yarn-buying, I would surely be a candidate. At last, the universe has given me tools for dealing with my addiction, with sites like Ravelry and Etsy.
And now, I have gotten my first sewing machine, and I’m just as obsessed with it as I am with the crochet hooks. Great.
Lastly, the name of my blog is inspired by one of my favorite TV shows, Deadliest Catch. One day, when I visit Dutch Harbor (who wants to go to the Caribbean, give me a bleak freezing arctic dock for vacation!), I’m going to give all my favorite fisherman some warm woolly handmade hats.
Thanks for stopping by, and please excuse the mess 🙂
