I am a beginner Hooker ;-)

In the last few weeks I have taken up crochet! Gosh it is FUN! It is a quick craft and you see something done very quickly although it uses lots more yarn than knitting would.

I started off making flowers and have done a hat for Miss almost 2.

It has been great learning a new skill in fact it is rather addictive! I have a few projects lined up to try out when I have a spare moment in between knitting projects.

    • Hi – well I did have someone show me at a weekly crafty night I go to and then just fiddled. Mum has helped over the phone but also U tube! There are lots of patterns on raverly.com as well. It is fun and addictive! I hope you master it soon.
