For quite a while I was fascinated with watching my best friend crochet wonderous items from double bed sized blankets to pettite baby booties, I seemed to almost become hypnotised by the twists and pull of this one little hook [tried knitting we didn’t get on, my thing as more cross stitch, embroidery and dressmaking].
She had a project idea of producing small stuff to sell and the funds helping towards her daughters Uni stuff course needs, I gave in and let her teach me how to do the few basic stitches and within an afternoon was merrily crochetting away making a broad headband. Scarves were the next natural progression, especially when she literally dumped a huge suitcase of unused yarn on my floor. Together we crochetted squares and made it into a friendship blanket [which I have] and I have also dabbled in a few other things like neck warmers, and doggy coats. Below are a few snapps of my progress [click the image for the bigger size]
Not all the things I have done have been photographed – we never did get round to seeling any of the stuff, it is still sitting in my friends chest of draws. I am still not through the suitcase of yarn.
