I am still going to make gifts but at a much slower pace and when it suits me.
Last week my wonderful mother in law asked me if I would like a bag of wool, crochet hooks and magazines that she didn't want anymore. She had wanted to learn crochet but couldn't get the hang of it, so of course I said yes as I have been wanting to join a crochet club in my local town for ages now but couldn't pluck up the courage to go as I wasn't sure I would be any good at it.
When I got home I looked at the magazines but couldn't make head nor tail of what the pictures meant to I went onto You Tube to see if I learn from there.
Well this was my first attempt at single crochet..
Then I had a go at double crochet making a granny square...
I am really pleased with my efforts and I can't believe how easy it is to do. What a lovely craft to do whilst sitting watching tv or listening to the radio.
I made these 2 on the Wednesday evening and on Sunday I went to buy some more wool from my local store so I can make a blanket.
I am so excited to show you how far I've got so far but that will have to wait for my next post.
Until then, take care and keep on crafting xxx
