There are so many talented crochet designers out there. I am fortunate to know many of them personally. As a new feature on Cre8tion Crochet, I will be showcasing a different crochet designer every week.
This week’s Featured Designer is Articles of a Domestic Goddess
Donna Knox is the voice behind Articles of a Domestic Goddess and a great crochet designer.
Here is what she has to say about crochet design, being a mom, and blogging!
I learned to crochet when I was very young during visits with my Aunt. There have been many times in my life that I have picked up and put down hook and yarn attempting to learn. Two years ago, when I knew I would have to stay home full time, I bought $50 worth of yarn, hooks and books so that I would have no excuses not to follow through. I started and haven’t put down a hook for more than 12 hours since the day I started! I don’t know what I would do if I wasn’t always carrying at LEAST 5 different colors and my entire hook kit.
I am the mother of 1 boy and 1 girl and I am married to the most supportive man on this planet. We own 2.5 acres in a rural area east of Houston, Texas where I have been blessed with the companionship of a gorgeous Quarter horse and a ridiculously smart Australian Shepherd. Being a mother is my greatest accomplishment.
I put my whole heart into everything that I do and I can get quite passionate. I started the Articles of a Domestic Goddess blog because I knew that it could go any way I wanted it to. Whether those “Articles” were on pieces of clothing, gardening, cooking, music, animal raising or the projects that I do with my children, it all still applies, and that’s what I looked at when I started the blog. It just so happens that those “Articles” right now pertain to crochet. This is the first thing I have pursued that has been completely and totally for me. It’s the first thing that I’ve begun to conquer that really has no ceiling to speak of, or at least not one that I can see. There is no end in sight to the work or to the creativity and that’s what I really enjoy about crocheting. My sincerest hope is that MY creativity affects all of you on a level that inspires, entertains, or interests. If I have done that then I’ve really achieved something.
