Greetings and Salutations
I'm 27 and a half years old.
I'm the child of an american mother and a mexican father and grew up in the Gulf Coast of Mexico in the sea-side city of Tampico (7 hrs. south of the Texan border).
When I was 9 years old, my Abuela (grandma) sat with me under the shade of the trees in the backyard, handed me a small aluminum hook, some yarn and showed me the basics of crochet.
I didn't do much afterwards, though I did make chains when I was stressed out to kill time. I think I managed to end up with a mile-long chain at one point.
In high school I took up crocheting as a serious hobby and have not stopped since. Graduated with a bachelor's, moved to Colorado with my american grandmother and am now planning to move again within the US so I can get a second bachelors. The yarn has followed me every step of the way.
And now.....I'm trying to learn to knit. Which isn't easy with an overactive cat by my side. :XX:
Aside from crocheting and knitting, I'm also a stage and voice actress and I used to be a mask-maker, librarian and tattoo designer. My bachelors in Mexico was Clinical Psychology and here in the US it will be Nursing.
Both are professions that need a lot of craftyness on the side to deal with the "waves", so any pointers you can throw my way are truly appreciated.
I love the site, I love the tutorials and look forward to having a lot of fun
