Good morning! First of all a massive warm welcome to a few new names on my followers list, it's lovely to have you here and I look forward to keeping up to date with what you've been up to.
I might have rather over egged the title to this post a little, but I am honestly so thrilled to have actually crocheted something. Now I know this must sound a little odd to those of you that are crochet experts and know your 'dc' from your 'tr' but for me it was quite an achievement. I can knit well but crochet has always got the better of me - not this weekend. I was really in the mood to try something new, you know how that feels don't you? The house was quiet, everyone was occupied so I seized the moment amd after much trial and error I managed to produce something that vaguely resembles a Granny Square.
Now I know I have a long way to go before I get to the standard of this lady ........
.......but it's a start and is a real tonic for my fidgety fingers. Does anyone else get that? I've even decided it's coming on holiday with me this year. I'd love to make a blanket but actually I can see how crochet would make lovely embellishments for projects. I'll have to get my thinking cap on.
I must give credit to this lady here for her careful guidance.
She has a few videos on You tube but it was lessons 1 -4 'How to make a granny square', that were the most beneficial to me.Once I understood that Americans use slightly different terminology I was fine. I'd recommend her to anyone like me who has wanted to do this for so long but without much success.
I also think there's nothing quite like seeing someone doing it rather than reading it in a book.
Now I,m going to visit Wendy at At home 1st unique gifts to see what those other busy crafters have been up to make sure you do too.
