The first money I made in this life was from #crochet. I was in primary 4. Here’s how that happened. Creativity is something I’ve always loved to explore; how does so-and-so work and what can I make out of it? So, when I saw this new craft that a million possibilities could be created from, I just had to learn it. My first attempt at crocheting was a cap and it kept curving, lol. Then I made a bag and doll clothes for my classmates on demand. In childlike glee, I would show my mum the money I made when I got home . It didn’t end there; I went on to teach myself how to read crochet patterns and make more complex items. Then came #knitting (many Nigerians confuse it with crochet), I learnt that too from a very great teacher. Gosh. How calming and therapeutic it is (now, quite lucrative as a business). I remember wearing a sweater I knitted to school and my classmates were awed. I saw it again yesterday and that’s what prompted this post, lol. It’s been years since then but I still lo…

It’s been years since then but I still love #crocheting and knitting very much. Last year (2019), I launched a crochet & knit wear business – bralettes, tops, beanie hats, mufflers, basically anything you can think of – and boy did I find it energy sapping, but it’s something I LOVE, plus I make money.😊 I’m busy with other projects now that equally require my creative juices flowing, but I’m glad I could share what I love and am good at asides #reading and writing with YOU.

Have you tried your hands at any HANDCRAFT before? Or do you by chance crochet or knit too? Let’s connect!πŸ˜€ #handcrafters #ilovetoknit #crochetersofinstagram #crochetbralette
