Why 5 Chubby Fingers?

5 chubby fingers refers to a page in my daughter’s favorite book “My first numbers”- An homage to my daughter who was responsible for reigniting my relationship with crochet.

I learned to crochet at 18, but had an on and off relationship for far too long. Fast forward a decade and a half later, a delicate pregnancy restricted me to bed rest. Crochet kept me sane and gave me a sense of purpose during those months.

A little inspiration can go a long way.

A baby and a never-ending list of yarn projects later, I created 5chubbyfingers as a space to document my crochet chronicles and hopefully fulfill my dream of becoming a crochet pattern writer.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day ahead!
