Today is the one year anniversary of my learning to crochet..I remember sitting glued to the internet watching endless videos on you tube over and over until it finally just clicked.
My very first project was a blanket for my daughter Mica made with these lovely bright colours.
At first I was taking a good hour or more to make one granny square, so these took me ages, luckily at the time we had a free trial of all the movie channels on Sky TV so I sat and watched endless films whilst I crocheted.
It was finally finished in July whilst Mica was in the USA, I had to sew it together at night as it was too hot during the day when I was sitting under it sewing the squares together!
The day Mica came home after an overnight flight she spent a good part of the day curled up under it asleep after giving me the huge amount of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups I insist she brings back for me!!
So thats it..a whole year of crochet, a yarn addiction and an introduction to lots of other crafts I would never have thought to have tried!!
One last little thing though...
Look what I got yesterday...
How delicious are these??
A GOOD EXCUSE
