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.
Hi! I just started the CAL last week, too. Maybe we can start the late bloomers club! I have done all of #1 and some of #2, and I'm trying to catch up too. Crocheting keeps me from eating (mindlessly) in the evening. Congrats on your 8 years smoke-free!
