Greetings all! My name is Onatah. Ok, I don't know much about blogs (or computers really,) so I thank you for the invitation to share on yours. This is the only crochet blog I follow because it caught my eye and sparks my imagination, doesn't flood it.

I was born in Brazil & raised on Martha's Vineyard. I have been an artist since I was a toddler. As a child I loved drawing self-portraits, making beaded jewelry, and collecting rocks pretending they were crystals. I did spend many years in school & college studying things I was interested in but did not have a passion for. I failed my art classes because I never did what they wanted or never finished on time. I am now very thankful for getting kicked out of a "great" college and fired from a "great" job. Four yrs ago I taught myself to crochet from a book. I started as a way to provide myself with custom-fit hats and clothing and now I care to share my designs with others. I stink at following patterns so I think free-form is where I am headed next. As I look to make a living for myself now from my creative spirit, I truly value the sharing & learning between creators from all walks of life. Thank you!!!
