Crochet.Community Interview: SRO-AUSTIN

This interview, with SRO-AUSTIN is from January, 2016

First, let’s talk about your owl hat: Did you design it? And how did you make those eyes?

Thank you. I designed the owl. The owl is made as an applique and stitch onto the hat. I use crochet thread and floss for the eyes. The most challenging part is the eyes. I usually like to make different things so I don’t think I will probably make another.

Tell us a bit about yourself
I am a retired secretary from a public school system after 37 years of service. I love crafts of all kinds. Sewing, hardanger,counted cross stitch, drawing, painting, ceramics, porcelain dolls, tatting, knitting, and of course – crochet.

What is your crocheting story?
As a tween, I bought a K-tel knitter (which is no longer made) and learned how to use that. I realize now that the process is much like crochet. After marriage, I loved the look of crochet, bought a hook and decided to teach myself.

What is your dream project?
My dream projects are looking at pictures and creating the item with yarn or thread. It is so exciting for me to see a skein of yarn become an item.

What has been your biggest challenge?
The biggest challenge for me is to complete a project before starting another😄. (STILL working on that challenge).

What has been the greatest gift that crocheting has given you?
The greatest gift that crochet has given me is the fun of making things for others and seeing their smiles when they receive the crocheted item.

And, any words of wisdom for beginners?
My words of wisdom are…if you want to crochet. . .go for it and keep going…crochet will fill your life with much happiness!
😃 love crochet!

Thank you Manda and Jo! Am working on a different looking kind of animal (the Loris) 😄. Only had one eye completed when my granddaughter asked if she could take the animal home when it is done💕. My grandkids are my biggest fans💚💛💜
