New to blogging

What I do is crochet hats and offer them for sale in my shop on Etsy. The hat pictured here is just one example of the different styles that I make. Mostly I like to make tams for folks with long dreads.

I also make yarn by upcycling clean, no longer wanted T Shirts. To see my creations visit my shop on Etsy.

Thank you, Mike
