Jennifer Spears has been crocheting for more than twenty years. In her quest to find something to keep her hands busy during her kids’ soccer games, she taught herself to crochet. Now she considers herself “a geeky crocheter,” and her favorite projects include parasols made with upcycled vintage umbrella frames.
