Greetings to all crocheters! My name is jd and I’m the new Moderator for this Blog. I have been active in the world of crochet for about 8 years, having founded the St. Louis Crochet Club shortly after I learned to crochet just over 8 years ago. Why did I found the club? I knew no one who crocheted! No kidding! Not my mom! I have no sisters. Most of my women friends are career women who do not participate in crochet or knit. I didn’t know about the crochetdude or ken jones or any of the other enthusiastic male crocheters in the world. I had to look far and wide at the time to find a crochet teacher – then she disappeared! So, I decided to go back to basics and start a group of some sort where I could learn more and make new friends. Have I told you that I don’t have a shy bone in my body??

So, here I find myself. I hope to be able to share lots of crochet related ideas with you. While I am NOT a world-class crocheter as far as technique goes, I am a world-class promoter of this art. I LOVE crochet and want to share it with all. So, please return to see what I find to inspire and encourage you in your crochet endeavors.
