On Tuesday Barbara and I joined the "stitch and bitch" at the local wool shop so we could learn how to crochet. Denise the "teacher" said we should start off learning all the basic stitches so we tried them out and they were quite easy to do and we realy enjoyed it.
I had a pattern for a corsage so Denise sorted me out some wool and a hook and got me started, my first attempt wasn't too good,
in fact it looked a bit like a knotted mess, so I abandoned it and started again!!
The second attempt wasn't much better either!!
By now I was getting the hang of it but didn't realy like the wools so I bought some more,
the outside ring still wasn't quite right but finally after the umpteenth attempt it was looking a bit more like a corsage
I made it out of fluffier wool and this shade of green is so me and I love the colour of this ribbon flower I've sewn in the middle.
Next week its granny squares so I need to pick some nice colours for my blanket, I find crocheting much easier than knitting but my wrist is aching from gripping the hook!!
Hope everyone has a lovely Mother's Day tomorrow and I'll be back on Monday to see what you all received from your little darlings.
Bye for now,
love Lucey xx
