Well, kinda... I've been wanting to learn how to crochet for years and years. Mum has tried teaching me several times but I was hopeless. The latest book club catalogue from Tassy's school had a learn-to-crochet book so I thought I would give it a shot.
It's wonderful!!! I have realised that I really need the pictures - I can't just watch someone. My memory is terrible so I keep having to refer to the pictures all the time. And it's much easier to actually see the yarn in a drawing than in real life when it sort of all blends in together.
It's a fantastic book!
I'm trying to master crochet flowers. Here's my first one.
Looking a bit more like an amoeba than a flower.
These are my next ones. Looking a little better.
Then I decided to get a bit adventurous and try different colours.
I do love the colours! I still need to master the flower itself - somehow I ended up with six petals on the last one! I'm still trying to get the hang of which hole to put the hook into, and I have to work on my tension, but I'm getting there! And I'm STOKED that I'm finally able to crochet SOMETHING! YAY!!!!
