I have been doing a bit of knitting lately now the cold dark nights are upon us.
I have been able to knit for a long time ....since I learnt in infant school really.
The bug has been on and off with me over the years....I did most of it when my kiddies were little.
I have always wanted to learn to crochet though....had one or two attempts over the years but given up lol
I just couldn't hold it right for one thing as well as keeping track of the stitches.
Well thank goodness for Youtube!
I have been watching crochet tutorials for about three weeks now (mostly during the night in my insomniac moments) and having a bit of a practice on an evening along side the knitting
.....and this week I made my first crochet beanie for my little grandaughter Mia.
I really enjoyed it as crochet grows faster than knitting....not quite sure I am holding the yarn right though but I get by lol
Still need lots of practice but I am really pleased with my acheivment so far :)
