As Salaam Alaikum (Peace be with you),

Who am I?

I am an ordinary American Muslim; artist, wife, and mother. Some may even say I have a personality…

How long have you been crocheting?

I learned how to chain from my mom when I was a kid, but I couldn’t crochet until I taught myself in November 2013.

Any advice for new crocheters?

Learn to read patterns, it opens the door to new techniques and stitches and shows you how an item comes together and act as the base where you can leap into uncharted waters.

What else do you do?

I like to draw from time to time, my favorite medium is pencil and ink, although I used to digitally draw/color as well. I started drawing when I was very young, and did not stop. I can also sew. These two hobbies tend to sit on the back burner as crochet has become a favorite of mine.

Plans for the future?

I hope to design patterns, and to fill a void in the Muslim crochet market. 

Insha’Allah (God willing)…
