After "coming out" as a crocheter through this blog, I became more certain about the path I was going to take. I decided to finally live out my passion and make something great out of this. This is what I want and what I love to do :) Like, really :p
Seneca said that "luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." There were times when I asked myself why I only started doing this at 30 (but I feel like 28 :p). My answer to that now is, had I started it earlier, I wouldn't have the confidence to teach, the guts and know-how to approach the business side of it, and the network to help me grow this craft. I think, so far, I've been lucky :)
In the past year, I've taught 100+ people, did a lot of challenging projects, wrote 150+ blog entries about crochet, and met a lot of kindred spirits in the crocheting world. I never thought crochet would be this happening!
