Having tried to master the art of crochet once before I didn't hold out much hope for my recent desire to have another go. Still, I purchased a shiney new crochet hook on the fabric run yesterday to illustrate my dedication to learning this skill.
There I sat last night with a set of instructions and created nothing but complete and utter tangled, tight, twisted shite! Each attempt made me increasingly cross and got thrown sulkily in the bin. One square, I only wanted to learn one square so I can make a blanket....but no.
Well, did the amazing Sparrowarms not happen to visit this morning and very, very kindly embarked on a training session. I watched, rather jealously, as she made these:
I refused to have a go in front of her as I was quite certain it would be messy.

Not much sewing done today but who cares when you can finally crochet.
