Meet The Maker

I want to proudly introduce myself to you. My name is Colt and I started my crochet journey back in 2016. It all begin on the day after Thanksgiving. My sister came down to visit us, she had these tools and yarn in hand (which to me sounded all crazy and weird). I really couldn’t take my eyes off the magic she was creating. That was my life changing moment. I asked my mother in law if she would teach me this new wonder. She grabbed some black yarn and hook, started the circle for and handed me this adventure. I couldn’t hold the yarn and hook properly at first, because my mind couldn’t grab the concept at first. It was like teaching a baby how to work the first time. I put myself down through the whole process and almost gave up. My determination and confidence, is what finally got me the grasp. After, that moment it was life changing. All things were just popping in and out of my head, just all the things I want to accomplish and take on.

After, month of tackling the basic stitches and mastering them, I decided it was time to dive into pattern reading. There was this one pattern that I wanted to try out, as I thought I was ready, so many attempts and frustrations, I told myself no more. I tucked it away and said a pray to help me get through it. Two days later, I pulled it out and everything went as a smooth. This was the door that opened my journey to new possibilities. With many different patterns I accomplished and mastered, everybody told me I should start my own business and start getting my stuff out there. So, I contacted my older sister just see her thoughts about going in with me to create one of our own, I just couldn’t be happier that it’s here today. This fun creative hobby I dove into 2yrs ago has finally became what it is today and couldn’t be happier.

Now as it is 2019, I have started writing my own patterns and getting my ideas out into the wild world. I plan to keep writing more patterns and do more blogging, to get ideas out there. This has been one incredible journey of a lifetime of happiness. I am blessed to be apart a great community of makers and new makers. Over a year and a half, I got into pattern testing and can’t explain how much it means to me. For helping other designers make their creativeness become a reality and to get out into the wild. These are the one things that keep my inspiration in thriving mode and that energy to keep it alive. I have met so many amazing people in this journey, that fill my heart. My husband, family and in laws, have been my biggest supporters and fans, that I am appreciative to have in my quarters, to make the drive real and joy to keep creating.

Little fun facts about me: married my best friend (couldn’t be in this world without him); been married since January 28, 2015; have two little daschund (that I adore); yarn hoarder; friendly personality; honesty is what I live by; born and raised in Wyoming (still a resident); going after my long life dream to become a nurse and excited; I love anything that deals with becoming one with nature (hiking, bouldering, backpacking, rock climbing, rafting, kayaking, site seeing); traveling is my passion (especially going to national parks); plus this little fact nobody really knows about me, I am a baker.
