Hi! I’m Janelle! Since 200 of you like my stuff enough to follow my shop, I think it’s time for an introduction!!
I am a girl mom, a wife, an introvert, a receptionist full time and crochet designer/creator on my free time. I love holiday markets and bazaars! I am 33 and have been crocheting since I was about 8. You do the math. My grandmother taught me how and passed away when I was 11. Crocheting and pattern writing is my way of honoring the gift she gave me by teaching me Crochet.
Now I’m constantly learning and this pattern world of Ribblr is somewhat new to me but it’s an exciting adventure!!!
Most of my patterns are very simple and unique. Some of my techniques I’ve not seen anywhere else but I find them easier. So, if you are up for a different style of amigurumi and love learning everything crochet, then my shop might just be meant for you to discover!
Tell me how old you were when you learned how to crochet and how old you are now (if you dare)
I don’t remember how old I was when I first learned crochet, maybe somewhere between 11 and 13. I’m 38 now but recently rediscovered crochet and feel I understand better what I’m doing. Got back into crochet about 7 months ago so I’d still consider myself a beginner or maybe advanced beginner. The items in your shop are adorable
Congrats on 200 followers Its so nice to get to know you more! Personally, i started to knit when i was about 9 or 10 (idk why lol) and then stopped for about a year, but ive tried to pick it up again recently. Then i saw my cousin crocheting and she taught me and now it’s my favourite thing to do!
Oh thank you so much!!! Your makes look really nice! I can’t wait to see more of them I totally followed! You should try my free gnome pattern! I’d say it’s pretty beginner advanced beginner friendly
Congratulations! <3 Your patterns are so adorable from what I’ve seen! I started to learn from youtube tutorials when I was about 22/23 and I am now 30. :>
Oh you are so young! It’s so wonderful that the young people are learning to crochet! It’s great for stress management and even a useful skill if you need or want to make money! Did you get my free gnome pattern yet? You seemed pretty stoked for it to drop
Yes i just got it! Im so excited to make it!
Oh thank you so much! I have quite a few more up my sleeve too
Also! Welcome to the 30s club! We are cool here!
Wahoo girl. So proud of you.
This is my daughter in law. She is a super talented designer. The best thing she ever EVER made is my granddaughter. Her other stuff is cool too but I am partial.
Haha thank you I’d have to say she’s my favorite creation ever too
Of course! Yay! I can’t wait to see! HAHA! Thanks! It’s weird leaving the 20’s!
You have such lovely patterns!
I’m a 32 year old mom and trying this side crochet business too! However my kids steal a good portion of my makes. Lol
My daughter always ends up getting my makes as well!
Thank you so much!!! My daughters job is quality and snuggles tester
Oh welcome to the Art!!! Glad to have you!!! Isn’t it so sweet how happy the kids get when we finish something? Like they are just as or more happy on the outside as we are on the inside that we completed a project
I’m surprised by what people like. I’ve done toys in my misfit tub ( they didn’t turnout like I wanted them to) and some people go ga ga over some of them.
Oh thank you!
It sure does make me happy that they love what I make! Last year, my girl snuck the first ever ami I made to school everyday and even wrote an assignment on it about how it was her most treasured thing . As if I needed more reason to crochet!
