about the blog:
It started off as a crochet blog but there is so much more that I want to share, so now it’s got a few more topics — knitting, for instance! There are also lots of tutorials in the drop-down menu bar right under the title banner, and if you have any requests/suggestions please let me know!
I’m very glad you’re visiting my blog. Please check back soon because I do update pretty regularly!
My name is Hannah. I was born in Oklahoma and lived there for 15 years, but I currently live in South Carolina, where I’ve just received my MEd in clinical counseling. I hope to be a fantastic therapist/counselor someday, although I have to admit that going out into the “real world” after spending 5/6ths of my life in school has me a bit nervous!
I’ve been crocheting since 2005 or 2006, and knitting since the beginning of 2012. I haven’t been knitting nearly as long because it was difficult for me to get the hang of it, but now that I’ve got the basics I’m eager to try out more challenging things! Both knitting and crocheting are great, relaxing pastimes for me (in the counseling world we call these “mindfulness activities” because they keep us in the moment), but I do have to pay a lot more attention when knitting since it’s still a relatively new thing.
Other hobbies/things I like include traveling, baking, photography, drawing, listening to music, playing music (piano, french horn, and bagpipes; can you tell my parents are musicians?), reading, and spending time with my wonderful chef boyfriend Chris and our sweet pitbull Zero. You may see posts on any of these topics on my blog, but I do try to stick to yarny persuits as much as possible.
This picture here is of me in England over Christmas of 2012, taken by the lovely Rachel from The Little Room of Rachell, a great crochet blog! That was the first time I ever met a fellow blogger, and I wish I could do it more (but there seems to be a bit of a shortage of knitting/crocheting bloggers in South Carolina).
Again, thanks for stopping by, and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave me a comment on any of my posts.
