When I was in Jamaica on vacation I took my first crochet class and was hooked, no pun intended. When I got back to the states I headed off to Sav-o-thon on 104th street and 3rd Avenue, a great location to pick up yarn, fabric and all things crafty.

My next step was to uTube to refresh my memory and create my own style. I’m a girl of practical needs. It’s cold in New York, and this wrap seemed right up my alley.
