When it comes to crafts, crochet is head and shoulders above everything else. I could go on forever telling you about how much I love everything about it.
It wasn't always like that though. For a long while crochet was my Nemesis, my arch enemy!
I loved how it looked, all the colours you could use, but I could not do it.
Several people tried (unsuccessfully) to show me. My mother in law gave up and took my hook away. (with much rolling of eyes)
All I could do was chain. I could do a chain from here to the moon if I had a large enough ball of yarn!
Anyhow. With the help of YouTube video, my yellow practice wool and a leaflet, I succeeded! I'm a SUCCESS!!!!!!!
Now I feel at a loss if I don't get to do some everyday. I need my fix. I'm an addict.
So here's my latest project.
Granny stripe blanket.
The tutorial can be found here. Lucy has the most fantastic tutorials,and photos. I honestly can't recommend the Attic24 blog enough.
I will post more photos when I get closer to the end. I'm off to hook some more!!
