Roots Ethiopia partners with communities in Ethiopia to turn local ideas into lasting change. They work together to improve schools, educate children, enable livelihoods, and include everyone. Donating to Roots Ethiopia is just one of the ways I like to “give back”. They help families in the region where I was born and that’s very special to me. Also, if you’d like to help me and my family return to Ethiopia to see the library/science lab I built and to meet the children in my birth village who use those new facilities please consider donating to my GoFundMe. Thank you crochet friends!Learn More

I love my new Jonah Jacket. I got the ivory color and the patches really look nice on it. So many people compliment me when I wear it and I tell them all about you (if they don’t already know!).
I gave everyone in our crochet club one of your pins and they really liked them. It made a nice Christmas gift for them. Thank you.
All of your tutorials are great but I really liked the pink shawl you made. I followed along and made a light green one- you are a great instructor young man!

Dish Cloths are the perfect beginner project. Actually, it was my very first project when I was 5 years old! Dish Cloths are fun and easy to make and people love them! You'll want to make sure you use 100% cotton so they are absorbable. I used Lily Sugar N Cream. Here's a a link to it:

Caron Crochet Shawl
You'll want to crochet this beautiful shawl using Caron Simply Soft. I used the color Chili Flakes but there are many colors to choose from. This shawl uses several stitches including a picot edge which gives it the beautiful detail and texture. You can customize the size to meet your needs. I have a video tutorial available below.

My Favorite Hook- The Streamline Galaxy Swirl
I frequently get asked how I can crochet so fast without pain in my hands. Well, it has a lot to do with my hook. I’ve used many different kinds of hooks and the most comfortable for me is the Furl’s Streamline Swirl Hook. It is ergonomically correct and is lightweight for my hands. This makes it easy to crochet for long periods of time. It also has excellent stitch definition and allows me to crochet fast. There are many fun colors to choose from and reasonably priced- remember if you crochet a lot, your hooks are an investment.
