Yep! Ive done it - I have finally got the crocheting thing!! Oh and its sooooo addictive.
Yesterday I bought one of those weekly magazine things that cost on $2.95 for the first one and then about $50 for each one after that... and it was on how to crochet. Must have been popular as I got the last one at the newsagents.
I only wanted the first one so I could get the basic instructions. It was so easy to follow and the pictures were big and clear... I have tried to learn for months, Ive tried You Tube tutorials, book after book from the libray, even poor Mum tried to show me.. and it just didnt click .
So I spent yesterday afternoon crocheting this beautiful blanket...(please excuse the photos, they were taken on my phone)
hehe... it barely fits over one of the kids Sylvanian family creatures... it took me hours to do this teeney tiny little rectangle!!
Anyway it was fun so now Ive started on a dishcloth in a lovely bamboo cotton. It might take a while and already looks a funny shape but Im hoping it will get better as I go *grin*.
And if you want to see gorgeous crochet that has inspired me to learn.. take a look here and here (and be sure to check out the rest of their blogs while you are there - they are two of my favourites)
