My name is Nicole Podgorski and I just turned 29 on March 1st. I am married and have 2 boys, Xavier and Ean. My husband, Chris, works full time and makes enough to support us. It has been difficult for me to find a job close to home that pays well. So my husband and I decided it would be best if I stay at home with our boys for the time being. In doing so, I needed to find a way to make extra money. So I picked up my crochet needle and started crocheting baby blankets to sell. My mom taught me to crochet when I was about nine years old. In just this last year I’ve learned many new patterns and stitches. This past Christmas, a friend from school asked me to make hats for all the students in her daughter’s class.
