The reason I’m not paper-crafting as much, and rarely posting now … I even struggle to keep up with the blog hopping I used to do (for hours on end)
That although it doesn’t look like it was my second attempt at crocheting (btw its a scarf, but doesn’t it look pretty all rolled up like that)
I can make one of these babies up now in 2/3 evenings.
I’ve just learnt how to make flowers! I love the flowers – and so simple ...
In between those (and there have been a few more scarves in other colours) I’m crocheting a Babette blanket, which is 100s of granny squares in varying sizes.
I got the inspiration to give crocheting a go from KatieJane (Am I a dreamer), just seeing and reading about her creations and how quickly they were appearing on her blog – I just had to give it a go!
I really can’t tell you how rewarding it is to see something grow so quickly and to know you’ve created it – If you haven’t yet discovered crochet and fancy giving it a go, you only need to start with one hook and a ball of wool. There are loads of tutorials online, but I’d recommend Crochet Geek, her tutorials are amazingly easy to follow.
