Hagrid's Pumpkin Patch Shawl

My History

I’m not weird, I’m gifted, was the quote I was determined to live my life by when I was 15 years old. I say I’ve done pretty well living by this motto, but I would modify it to: I’m weird and gifted. My weirdness or lack thereof is not what brought you to this blog though, it was the gifted part, more specifically the crochet/craft gifts.

My name is Clarisabeth, I’m the human behind the crochetcakes podcast and the Daintybycrochetcakes brand on Etsy. The art of crochet wasn’t always a part of my life.  When I first ventured into the crochet world, I was 15 years old and I couldn’t understand how anyone practiced it enough to create anything with it. Crochet was boring and not an achievement I was interested in unlocking. I know, I was crazy.

I would like to think that in my 10 years crocheting I have unlocked some of the mysteries of the craft but there is still much to look forward to and uncover. Let’s learn together in this new adventure.
