I'm sure you can all remember a while ago I was trying to teach myself crochet! Yes?
Well I haven't given up on the idea, it's just that progress has been slow. This is something I find difficult. I'm more of an instant gratification kinda girl if you know what I mean!
However just this last week the penny seems to have dropped (after much cursing and swearing), obviously when no little people were about, and I seem to be able to crochet. Woop Woop I hear you shout, at last! Well Mr. G shouted that anyway, I don't think he realises the impending cost implications of not only a fabric addicition but a yummy wool addiction too. Ouch.
So in true hooky fashion here is a picture of what I'm working on.
On the left of the picture is a circle and two smaller pieces of crochet that will be turned into something for 'Little Miss H's' bedroom over the next couple of days and the two granny squares are the start of what will be an ongoing project to make a crochet granny square blanket. I will of course post pictures of the finished items.
I've got to give the credit for mr crochet love to Lucy of Attic 24 fame because truly without her awe inspiring tutorials and her very gorgeous, mouth-wateringly colourful blog, I'd have thrown the towel in weeks ago!
If you don't read her blog you really must start, the eyecandy is just fab. If you don't crochet, you really must have a go, her style of writing makes tutorials a breeze to follow and crochet is soooo relaxing once you master it. Whilst I'm on with the thanks, I really should mention Vivienne as it was she who put me onto Attic 24, as well as always being at the end of the email whenever I need hooky advice! Thanks Vivienne!
