Welcome to My Crochet World

I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I am married and between my husband and I we have 5 children and 5 grandchildren. Our youngest child just graduated from High School and we are getting ready to take him to New York to the Conservatory for Dramatic Art. But that’s enough about that. (I get very emotional when I talk about My Joshua)

Anyway my passion is my family and crochet. I love to crochet and I get up at 3:30 every morning to work on my crochet projects. I think I’m a normal crocheter when it comes to having more than one project at a time going. Let me try to think about what I have on my hooks.


A ripple afghan (I love ripples)

A Hat

A Triangle Popcorn Stitch Shawl

A Set of Granny Square Trivets

And a doily that isn’t far enough along to take a picture of. Tell me what’s on your hooks.


  1. Oh dear. When I think of your sadness about Joshua’s leaving home, I can feel the anxiety for you. Tho I don’t know if it is possible, I think you just might be doing even more crocheting than usual, once he is gone.

    What I’ve been working on is my granddaughter’s turquoise-&-espresso ripple aghan (yes, still in the process – LOL!). And a small area rug (dc in back loops). A couple days ago I added on to 3 dishcloths I’d made for my daughter awhile ago. She likes them about 11″ square – yikes! One of them I’d made – well, I just don’t know what I was thinking; it was way teeny. LOL! It was fun to make them more enjoyable for her to use now.

    SO GLAD YOU CREATED THIS BLOG, TAMARA!! I will keep you in my prayers. I know God will help you thru this change in your & Joshua’s lives.

  2. Hi, I am so glad to have found you. I can’t wait to see what you will come up with here. I know you will miss Joshua but he will have some great things to tell you along his journey. I couldn’t find a place to sign on as a Follower so you will have to tell me how to do that. Chat later—Hugs

  3. Hey there my friend! I love your new blog! Gotta go check out your Etsy shop now. I love what you have on the hooks, but then I think you’re amazing anyways. Good good luck with your blog and shop.

  8. Hi HI HI!!!! xo

  9. Congratultions. I have been looking forward to this. I followed your blog with Leisure Arts and loved it.

  10. […] Anyway, Susan Sullivan, Editor-in-Chief of Leisure Arts, just happened to see some of my crochet pieces in my sister’s booth and liked what she saw.  She contacted me after the show and asked if I would be interested in blogging for their brand new website devoted to crochet.  Apparently, they had read all of my blog entries from KS My Stitch and liked what they saw there too.  So for a year and a half, I was the voice of crochet on Crochet Soiree.  Tamara’s Take was the name of the blog.  After the year and a half, Leisure Arts decided to combine all of their websites under one and no longer needed my services, so the rest is history.  (UC comment: While the Crochet Soiree website is no longer available, you can still check out the YouTube channel.) I created my own blog on WordPress in July, 2010, and have been blogging there ever since.  (UC comment: You can check out Tamara’s first post on her own blog here.) […]
