Salutationscrochet Feature!

Today we are proud to feature salutationscrochet! Be sure to leave some love!

Hello! I'm Charlotte. I live in Northern Utah with my husband and our little girl.
I've been crocheting since I was about ten years old, which is when my mother taught me how. Years earlier, my mother learned the same set of skills from her mother. The funny thing is, when my grandmother was around 80 or so, she had me sit down with her and re-teach her. So, we came full circle.
Crocheting is one of my most enjoyable hobbies. I like the feel of the yarn between my fingers, and I love the way a hand-made blanket, scarf, hat, hairband, or whatever else has a different feel to it than something that is made with more automation. There's a feel of love in handmade articles. I'm grateful for that.
I chose to make this headband for my challenge piece because I absolutely love the color yellow. I love the look of it, I love the feel of it. For me, yellow symbolizes cheer, warmth, sunshine, and joy, all wrapped up into one bright happy color. It's been my favorite for years and years now, and I don't see that happening anytime soon.
I've been selling on etsy since the summer of 2009, and have had just a marvelous experience here. I have two shops, one at salutationscrochet.etsy.com and another at charlottelaughs.etsy.com I also have a blog, where I write the adventures and occurrences that happen to me and my little family. That can be found at charlottelaughs.blogspot.com
