I love crocheting. I just can’t stop. If you are already following me on my instagram you would see that i post my crochet journey.
I first learnt to crochet when i was young. I could never get the hang of it. I could never get straight edges and every time i tried to make a simple scarf it always turned out curly. My bags would start out big and end up smaller at the top. I couldn’t figure it out and eventually i gave up.

By the time i was in the university, i had already assumed that i was dull and couldn’t get anything right. I was depressed and very tired. I struggled with my school work and relationships. I tried crafts, gardening and singing 😊 but i gave up on all of them.
One day i prayed to God to make me creative. To change my story and take away the hurt i feel on the inside. And in response to my prayer God gave me the gift of crochet.
I saw my friend crocheting one day and it sparked the thought to begin crochet again. There was no turning back since then. I was hooked.
I didn’t make a perfect item at first but there has been lots of improvements and growth. I watched youTube videos and search pinterest. And practised everyday. I was almost inseperable from my hook. Unfortunately i did not document anything i learnt so i can’t leave reference to them.
I started by crocheting headbands and hats. I didn’t sell anything in the beginning. I gave my pieces to my friends and family. And i have learnt that with hardwork and consistent practice you can learn and achieve anything.
today, i run a successful crochet business and help other people start their own incredible journey on this incredible gift of god.
Do you crochet? Or knit? Are you in love as i am? What fun project are you working on? I want to know. Tell me in the comments. And if not what other craft do you do?
