I've done it my dears! At long long last I have learnt how to crochet! And I cannot tell you how my heart is racing at the thought of future projects!
I know its a trend, mainly inspired by attic24, however I had tried crochet years back but got hooked on patchwork instead!
Last year I ordered the book on the right, (cos I could crochet right? LOL), whilst being a gorgeous read, do you think I could understand the strange diagrams and abbreviations? NO!!
Back to basics with the lefty which was a christmas present and boy have I used it!
Found some old wool I got off Mum and bought a new hook...
My first attempts were certainly hindered by the tequila, in my sunrise!
Not a great mix!!
I got the basic idea, now to put it together.
My books were a great help, however there's nothing like seeing the real thing.
Enter you tube.
Ipods are not just for music.
Much to the amusement of the husband, this was often how I was found at the weekend!
God please dont look at my belly! Too many chocolates have been eaten!
The film I found was by an American man,
which I only found out once I'd found my earphones!
(usa and uk crochet stitches have differing names,
so best to watch without sound, or find an english one!!)
Heres what I managed.
They may be far from perfect, I'm just as they say hooked.
It really is worth a try.
Its a lot easier than it looks!

Now the wonderland bit!
I think we all have seen snow this year, right?
Still irresistable to us snappers!
