Crochet, it's one of those things I've always wanted to do but never quite got the hang of. My Mum patiently tried to teach me on a number of occasions but I was the impatient one and let's just say that we both thought it best if I find another way of learning. Then last week I saw Kate's lovely layout where she had crocheted her own trim. Right I was going to do this......
....and I did, I can't tell you how good it felt to finally get it. My furry assistant was no help at all but she is very keen on pummelling my balls of wool.
I know I should have learnt the basics first but I so wanted to be able to crochet a basic granny square. I put a gloomy bank holiday weekend to good use and tracked down some tutorials. I can totally recommend this one at Meet Me At Mikes by Pip for learning granny squares and I'm going to make a real effort to take these lessons by Crafty Minx at her crochet school to learn the basics.
So that's what I've been up to for the last week dreaming of colour combinations for granny squares.
Journaling the new year.
