When I’m not reporting on local school systems and community education opportunities, I can almost always be seen with a ball of yarn and a crochet hook in hand. My latest project has been a crochet baby blanket made out of multi-colored hexagon blocks — a shape that I haven’t made before…

After thinking about it and asking my mom, I realized that I’ve been crocheting now for over a decade! My grandma taught me everything she knows when she moved in with us for a couple years around 2013. Ever since then, crocheting has been a super relaxing thing for me to do while watching movies, on trips, or just anytime I need to take a break from the craziness of life.
