New addiction…?

So.. I might have found another craft addiction…. Crochet!

When I was doing fairs a couple years ago I did try to learn but couldn’t get it to click now I see I was trying the wrong chain… Being inspired and encouraged by a fair few people this week I had inklings to try again then I saw this when doing the local grocery shop….

What really called to me was the woodland theme- those who follow me more regularly know that is one of my obsessions so how could I resist? There’s a fair few projects I wouldn’t mind doing soon.

There’s even a handy guide for newbies or to refresh on stitches. I think I might start the fox later especially since my “practice” piece went ok. It’s meant to be a coaster for hubbie’s desk but it’s wonky… and that’s due to me not picking up the end stitches oops but least I’m learning!

Now try not to laugh…..

  4. As I said on Twitter I reckon it’s pretty good for a first go, crochet is very addictive though but also really relaxing. I’m loving spending a bit of time each evening adding a little more to a blanket I’m making as a Christmas gift, keeps me snug while I work on it too so it’s a win/win!! πŸ™‚
