I'm learning to crochet!
I really am.
It's been a lengthy process... initially I tried to learn with online tutorials and videos but struggled a little...
a couple of weeks ago I met up with some crafty friends who helped me get started and I've also started going to classes at a local yarn store called Calon Yarns.
I've been to two classes so far and we've been learning different stitches.. next week there is talk of making a flower! argh!
anyway, while I was in class last week I saw the most delicious neon pink yarn and had to take it home and try and make a scarf out of it.
what do you think??
the edges are not particularly straight, but it's my first attempt and I'm pretty proud of myself.
I'll be going to get more yarn later....
I really want to make blankets and 70s style shawls... anyone know of any tutorials and patterns I can find online?
I'm linking up with ta-dah tuesday and my creative space too, go see what other people have been up to!
(ooo, also wanted to add - I got an email from a lovely old college friend which made me so happy!
but when I tried to reply the email address didnt work - so lovely anna from college? can you mail me again?? maybe here - firstname.lastname@example.org )
