I would like to welcome

"Hi! I'm Jen and I blog at Everyday Life atLeisure. I really appreciate Sue giving me this chance to talk to you!
I've been knitting and crocheting for about 20 years. I learned the basics when I was 10, and got much more serious about learning to knit something other than garter stitch after my daughter was born in 2011. Then I became more serious about crocheting something other than granny squares about a year later when a friend who worked for Leisure Arts asked if I would be interested in blogging for them. I thought it sounded like fun, so I immediately said "yes." Then he said I should probably learn how to Knook. I said "yes!" again, even though I didn't really know what that meant.
Blogging for Leisure Arts means that I try out their patterns and write about them. That's it! That's the whole blog! I've got about 30 years' worth of patterns to look at, and I've got a lot to say about them! My whole 'say yes and see if you can pull it off' plan was really put into action last summer when I was asked to write more about crochet. I now try to write 3 posts about crochet each week. That's a lot of crocheting! After some initial panic, I discovered that crocheting dishcloths is a great way to try out new stitches and techniques and I was hooked! (Pun intended.)
Stop by anytime!"
Thank you ever so much Jen!
