I didn’t learn to crochet until I was 36 years old. My friend Suzy had moved in with me that year and brought a pile of yarn and hooks with her. I was desperate to learn to crochet; I had always wanted my mother or grandmother to teach me but they wouldn’t because I am left-handed. Suzy had no fear, and because of her careful teaching I received the gift of creativity through yarncrafting. I cannot express my gratitude to her in words for opening this world to me, as it’s brought me so much joy in the craft, in the friends I’ve made through the fiber arts community, and in productive time well spent; since this pattern reminds me of her favorite flowers in my patio garden, I’ve named it in her honor. It seems fitting to do since this year marks 15 years that I’ve had a hook in my hand, all thanks to her love and friendship.
