So I set myself a challenge I would learn one crochet stitch before Yarndale out came my book Rowan Crochet workshop and I gave it a go. The photographs were a great help and by the time Yarndale Saturday arrived I could just about manage a couple of rows of double crochet. My breakthrough came at Yarndale where I came across the Beautiful Things stall. After a good chat to Claire I treated myself to a semi virtual course. This was the best thing I have done for a long time.
At first I was all fingers and thumbs and I could not hold the hook or yarn quite how Claire suggests in the video but practise as they say makes perfect or in my case helps a great deal.
So here we are this is how far I have got
Claire's video is really clear and easy to understand. I have already ordered the next course.
Now I just have to stop myself from stressing about not learning years ago
