iin_1mCROCHET REPUPLIC 

Hi I am Iin, a crocheter  who loves photography and a mother of 2.

I learned to crochet since I was 5 from my aunt but only since 2011 I became very active crocheting. I am the type of person who can’t stick to just one project at a time. Most likely I will have several small projects in between large projects.

The first item I designed was a green lacy granny square. The square hits so much Likes on a social media group which lead me to write my first pattern. Since then I have made several more items. I tried as much as I can to write down all the process but not all. Some projects required quick finish and quick delivery to customers and I just have no time to write the pattern properly although I wish I did. For those items I did  without patterns I posted them under Project title.

I love meeting friends for crochet and we used to have a group who meet up regularly. Now I am back home, it has been a little quite ever since I returned.

Friendship Granny Blanket

Above is a granny blanket my friends in  Lagos made me. I see my friends’ face  in every square they made me in it. The happy cat is Lekki, a Nigerian cat we brought home to Indonesia with us.

Egypt, Mexico, Malaysia, Indonesia, Panama, Poland, Italy, France, Pakistan, India, Kenya, Nigeria… a melting pot of crochet republic. Above picture was during one of the send off party for a friend living for another country.

Things grows at unprecedented rate back home and suddenly now I have 6 cats,  ahah… and I also have met some new friends!  Since the past few months I decided that I should have a craft room assigned for all my yarns which is a cat free and smoke free (cats are not allowed to play inside). Some of my friends are allergic to cat fur so I guess this is the only way to go. My cats can roam other places in the house but this room. Below is a glance of the things which surround my day-to-day activities and some of my favorite photos…

PS: Shhhh… I am not leaving crochet, it just that I am currently drawn into a new job as a home dyer.

Hope you enjoy your visit, please comeback often and leave me a comment telling me you are here. Take care…

Happy Crocheting ❤❤❤
