I have been crocheting since I was 9 years old, and I am 52 now! My great grandmother, grandmother and great aunt taught me. I have a Master's in Basic Stitches through CGOA (Crochet Guild of America).
From May 1977
Dr Who Inspired Scarf
Thought I might try my hand at making one of these rediculously long scarves. The information I found online included a tip for buying the specific yarn colors. Go to Home Depot stores and get paint color chips, then go to the yarn store and match as close as you can. I had a little trouble with the red/rust. I wanted to keep all yarns from the same maker. If I make another one, I will use a different brand of yarn.
I was part of a crocheted coarl reef, where I made several pieces of "coral" and undersea creatures for an exhibit at the Avonlea Antique Mall in Jacksonville, FL
