Hey all, my name is Veronika and Im very happy you found my blog about crocheting! Thank you for stopping by!
Feel free to look around and enjoy the free patterns and tutorials and then – yarn over and get hooked :) !
I’m Veronika, 30ish years old, married and mother of a very energetic almost 3 years old daughter. We live in Vienna, Austria.
Despite the fact that I studied veterinary medicine, I’m a stay at home mom actually. I enjoy reading, family time and of course crocheting !
I was looking for a suitable name for my blog for a while and I always came back to the fact that it should have crochet in it and should be related to something personal about me. So here is the story behind the name:
When I was a little girl our favorite TV show were the muppet babies. My mother also liked watching it and somehow it happend that she started to nickname me after one oft he muppet babies: the animal!
I dont know if its because I was grumbling a lot or because I was very hairy ;) but the name stayed. Now you need to know that I live in Vienna, Austria, and our native language is german. In german the anmial is called „Tier“ and the baby animal „Tierchen“. So I’m a chrocheting „Tierchen“ and that’s how this blog got named.
How I got hooked
It all started with finding a crochet kit in a local store. The cute little owl on its cover stole my heart in seconds and before knowing it I found myself buying it. So without having anything to do with crocheting before (well since my early years in school) I tried to make the owl. It came out quite the way it should and I got hooked. I started searching the web about chrocheting, free patterns and blogs about crocheting. Since then it was me and the hook every evening ;)
The idea about a blog started to cross my mind over and over again after sharing lots of pictures of the stuff I made on Facebook. It was so much fun to read about other’s experiences and share my personal homemade stuff and I was flattered that people liked what I did.
So I thought, why not share it through a blog :) and here we are!
What’s chrochetier about?
This blog will provide basic information about crocheting, crochet terminology (to help you translate english/german patterns if you aren’t a native speaker) a lot of how to’s, free patterns (from time to time) and news about other blogs and crochet communities – so I’m working on making all my patterns and tutorials in english (UK) AND german :)
So that’s enough about me, now enjoy reading and feel free to comment and let me know what you think about crochetier!
