Can I Crochet? Yes I Can!

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.
After a few attempts and self-corrections, my square looked increasingly square-like:

By jove, I think it's working.....and I am super-fantastically excited!
Not much sewing done today but who cares when you can finally crochet.

  1. Good on you, I'm learning here too, mine are not looking great they are round looking but I have decided to use them as christmas decorations for the tree as they look a bit like snowflakes :) rather than granny squares.

    All things nice...
