  1. Hi Teresa! Congratulations for your amazing website and tutorials! I'm french and despite the large number of french websites on how to crochet I find yours far better and easier to understand, despite the language barrier! It's really easy to follow your descriptions, which is great for a beginner like me! Many thanks!
