It hurts me when people tell me my patterns intimidate them. Ironically, I used to think that certain people intimidated me because I thought they were smarter than me and they had more than me. Now the tables turned on me. I want to make complex things simple to understand. I like to add a new dimension on things like hats. Sometimes I think I know about something more than some. As it turns out I intimidate them, but I don’t intend to. My patterns intimidate people but I don’t want that to happen. Accept a new challenge and think yourself smarter than you think you are. Grab a new lease on life and go places. Accept change. My videos will help you get a head start on my patterns especially the LAUREN and VIRGINIA hats. They among my others add a new twist on crochet. I offer ways to help make the pattern easy to understand. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. When I offer challenging patterns, I don’t mean to offend anyone. I just want to share my expertise with the world.
