Look at what I made (Dedri)

Dedri
Hi, my name is Dedri and I am the hooker behind Lookatwhatimade. By day I am a radiotherapist, a mom to 3 gorgeous young boys and one feisty cat, and a wife to a very handsome and kind-hearted husband. At night you will find me huddled over my crochet hook, furiously scribbling down patterns, tripping over the cat in my mad dash between computer and photography equipment, and screaming at my husband to “BRING ME MORE COFFEE… OR WINE!” I love to crochet, but more than that, I love to teach other people to crochet and to love it as much as I do. My granny taught me to crochet when I was knee-high to a grasshopper, and although I was good at it, I didn’t particularly like it. It wasn’t until I was pregnant with my second son 5 years ago that I picked up a hook again. A simple blanket led to a puzzle ball, which led to a never-ending crochet frenzy! I get inspired by the oddest things – like the nose of a specific car or the train tracks at the tube station, the colours on a bag of sweets or a doodle one of the boys has done… I particularly like repeating patterns and can stare at tessellations for hours, trying to find different images in the patterns. But above all else, I am inspired (and energized) by colours. Any colours. Any combinations. The more the merrier.
