About me

Hello :)  I'm so happy that you stopped by!  

I'm Chie (pronounced "chee-ay"). I'm originally from Japan, and I live in the South with my loving family.

I am NEVER far from yarn, crochet hooks, and knitting needles! :) I occasionally write patterns, test patterns, and make samples.  I also love hairpin lace crochet and Tunisian crochet.

I'm the happiest when I find a great free pattern with which I can make gifts for people I care.  When autumn arrives, I start looking for patterns and yarn to make garments, amigurumi, scarves, etc...  In the spring, I just got to crochet doilies with thread.  I wouldn't know what to do if I lived in a place where there is just one season or loooong summer! :D

The women in my family have inspired me - I'm the 3rd generation crocheter & knitter! Women in hubby's family also crochet. :)  My husband and son are such great supporters for my passion.

I'm a survivor of adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia.  I can't tell you how much crochet & knitting helped me through my recovery.  Even when I'm too sick to crochet, I always had a ball of yarn and a crochet hook on my bed side dreaming of what I'll make, then when I got well enough, I just couldn't stop crocheting. :)  I remember a lady who shared a hospital room with me would always crochet, and she survived lymphoma.

Last of all, I just have to show off my babies :D

Cuddles & kisses shared with my pets = An unconditional love spoken with no words = Happiness

Happy stitching!


~ Chie
