Hello my name is Noramon Dron, my friend and family call me Piano. I was born in October, 1991. I was growing up in small town name Kamphaeng Phet, Thailand.
Let's talk about how I start crochet. I am start crochet when I was 14. It was a summer vacation and my mom think she should find some new activities for me, since I been immerse myself in reading comics and novels. So she send me to spend time with my aunt who live nearby. My aunt taught me how to do a basic chain and single crochet to make handkerchief edge. But I want to make a doll, I was really eager to made one. After I finished my first crochet project 'the handkerchief', I asked my aunt if she can teach me how to made a doll. I really want my favorite character doll but buying dolls is waste of money. Back then I was a thrifty kid even though my mom would bough me one if I beg. She said that I already have the basic and give me a Japanese amigurumi book that full with Japanese and diagram! I had no idea what written in the book. She roughly explain how to read the diagram and left me do trial and error by myself. I feel a little frustrate at that time, because I was mess up my first pig doll. But after try again I finally understand how to read the diagram.
At that time internet is hard to access, I was study in a boarding school with no internet available, the only ting I could rely on was that book I have. So after try several pattern in that book, I alter the pattern by myself and crochet an anime character. If I remember correctly it was "Gon" the lion doll from manga name 'Bleach'. I keep trying different shaped doll, imagine what I should crochet to made it appeal as I want. Until I finished high school.
I had my first laptop when I was graduate high school, and it my first time seeing crochet are all over the internet. I remember getting so excited, searching and saving the pattern from the internet. I started to learn how to read English and some other different type of pattern.
When I was sophomore, I decided to open my own facebook page as a part time job, receiving custom order crochet doll. Unexpected I have more and more custom requests, and at the peak period, I had got 6 months long queue. At that time, crochet was not fun or relax as it used to be. It stress me out even more together with intense study in university. So I decide to limit the amount of requested order. And start to publish my pattern online.
After graduate university I almost stop receive custom requests. And focus on my job as an IT man in hospital. It really a difficult time for crochet since I am too exhausted from my day job and OT. I don't know how to describe the feeling at that time. I think it a hard period that every young adult have to face. The feeling of wanting to choose other path or choose the difference direction.
And there's come the crossroad. In 2015, I win a Royal Thai Scholarship, fully financial support for master and PhD. I see my future path more and more clearly. So I decide to open a YouTube channel for free crochet tutorial, and giveaway some of my pattern for free.
I will start MSc at the University of Edinburgh in the September 2016. So I have some free time to shoot some videos before I move to study in United Kingdom. From now on I will try to film my crochet for sharing with you guy as much as I can. Even tough the yarn price in UK is more expensive than in Thailand.
