I have never crocheted before, and I am keen to give it ago, I just hope its more fun than knitting...in fact I tend to get really really board when I'm knitting - about 5 years ago I decided to learn to knit and started on a scarf...lets just say, its obviously not my thing as I'm still working on it :P
When Crafty Mummy from the And Sew We Craft (ASWC) team blogged about having a crotchet along, I decided to join in :)
Last week I collected my tools, a size 7 crotchet hook (a hand-me down) and some 12 ply acrylic wool (less than $5 from Big W).
And last night I sat down to give it a go...
The 1st row of chan stitch wasn't that difficult, and I found it quite easy to follow along with the instructions.
The 2nd row that required me to double crochet is where I got really stuck...I found it hard to understand what I was doing wrong with only the written instructions and photos for help...so I headed to YouTube and found this video very helpful :)
And then 2 hours later I was well on my way!
I'm still not sure if crocheting is for me, but I like it better than knitting - so I guess that is a good sign :D
