So happy I found this site! I have been crocheting (or as my friends and I call it "hooking" lol) for almost 3 years and wish I would of started years and years ago.

I am 46 just recently became a SAHW due to some health problems. I want to take my crocheting to a new level and do graphgans. 

My husband and I have been married almost 26 years and have 3 grown kids and 4 beautiful grandbabies on earth and one in Heaven!!We live on a very touristy island in Northern MI.  

I look forward to chatting with lots of you!! And learning lots...

I do have one question though..Is there a way to take a picture and delete the background before you submit it to be transferred into a pattern? 

Look at that smile! (Photo guaranteed unretouched)

Welcome! Smile

So happy you did find hooking,'s a lot of fun! Wink

What a great idea to use your time at home to be productive with your hooking. Smile

Nothern Michigan...upper or lower peninsula? I hear it's beautiful in the upper peninsula and spots north in the lower peninsula. I was in Port Huron many years ago on a trip, crossing into Canada. We chose Port Huron figuring Detroit would have a lot of traffic. Port Huron definitely didn't have a lot of traffic!

Very glad you've found us! I can honestly tell you there's always something to learn with crochet. That's one of the joys! I've been crocheting for over 35 years (which means before I was born, because I'll only admit to being 25 years old Wink) and still learn new things!

Yes, you can edit your photo, though you'll have to use a graphics program for that. If you're on a PC I can give you the links to two very powerful (and free!) graphics programs, where you can remove the background before sending it through the freePatternWizard. I can't explain how to use either program because I use an ancient graphics program, circa 1998 or so. Surprised Well, it works, so that's what counts! LOL.
