Crocheting was the first ever craft I learnt. I still have all the hooks my Grandmother gave me. Unfortunately they have seen better days largely because I insist on using them for other things like making fabric beads.
Just after Christmas I was strolling through Spotlight when I happened upon this.
A complete set of shiny new hooks. Of course this meant that I would have to do some crocheting. With all of the funky crochet flower patterns available I decided I would grab some of my hand dyed threads and make some. My enthusiasm didn’t last long. They are all written using American Crochet and I grew up with English Crochet. Back to Crochet School.
Started on a granny square ‘cause at least I knew what it should look like in the end.
I stayed with the wool and tried a simple flower. Ready to move on now. Different patterns and more interesting yarns and threads.
