When I was a little girl I wanted to learn to crochet.
My Grandma was constantly crocheting.
She spent a whole afternoon trying to teach me once.
I failed to mention that I was left handed.
The session did not go well!
That was the end of my attempt to crochet for many years.
Then, this year, I got a hunger for it again.
A real hunger.
So I booked in for some lessons at a local college.
These are the results so far.
A bit wibbley!
I had a lot of trouble finding that last stitch.
Hmm... slightly better?
But look! Never give up!
Make a mistake into .... well in this case a house?
Ahh the brain!
That seemed to work.
My first granny square.
And so the new addiction has begun ....
...in sherbet colours.
These are Stylecraft Special DK.
This is a chunky yarn by Adriafil called Mirtillo.
My very first cushion cover ...
...and a small string of granny bunting.
I have to say I am loving it.
The results are still a little rough round the edges
but after so many years of thinking I could never learn
I am beaming with happiness.
Have a fabulous weekend.
