Allen Williams' mother and great-grandmother taught him to crochet when he was around eight years old. He made potholders, afghans, hats, and Christmas tree ornaments. He even ventured into the land of cotton crochet and worked up doilies and tablecloths. Allen finds crocheting to be relaxing and does it mostly in the evenings as a stress reliever from a long day at work.
Allen also loves to cook, and you'll find many recipes, especially old handwritten recipe cards, on his web site linked below. He has also explored many other hobbies, including pottery, glass bead making, painting, and sewing. Crocheting is one of his favorites, though, and it holds a special place in his heart. Even though he periodically starts and stops crocheting, it's one of the few crafts he has consistently done all of his life.
