I am new to this forum. This is my first CAL and my first afghan. I have been crocheting for about 8 years. I taught myself from videos on YouTube. Learning to crochet saved my life. I took up crochet when I quit smoking and have not had a cigarette in 8 years. I got a late start on this CAL but have finished clue 1 & 2. I have started on clue 3 and I'm hoping to catch up to everyone by the time we reach clue 6. Reading through all your posts has really help me along the way. I have been able to see problems and solutions before I get to the motifs. Thanks for all your help. And it is nice to be crocheting with all of you.
Welcome! This is my first CAL and afghan as well. I taught myself crochet last year via You Tube. I had been knitting for about 3 years prior to that. I have found the forum to be extremely helpful and motivating.
Congratulations on 8 years smoke-free!
