About

Me - AndreaHi Everyone!! I know I look absolutely thrilled in this picture, but believe me, I AM!! You have gotten to this page looking for something I may have for you. So, before you head off to the races, take a little time to find out just who is behind At WIPS End & who is designing the crochet patterns you find on my blog.

My name Is Andrea. I am a Mom of 4 awesome kids & 2 fur babies. I love to craft. Crochet is my favorite though. I have been crocheting since 2013. I taught myself by watching YouTube videos and annoying my husband and kiddo asking if everything looked ok. Im learning to knit & loom knit as well. I started designing patterns in 2015. I enjoy it, but time limits me from creating as much as I would like. I definitly find creating graph patterns very satisfying. I pledge to you, that I will only be giving original graphs from 2017 and beyond. I love to draw & I use my own images to create the graph patterns. I’ve been creating digital images since early 1998, so I have tons of images to turn into graphs. I cannot wait to show you all!

Besides that little bit of information, other things about me that are interesting. I am a veteran of the US Army. I served as a Combat Medic from 2005 – 2009. I left the military after I had my youngest child. My children are my world, 2 are adults now & one is almost there. My youngest is autistic, so posts may be about that from time to time.
