My new obsession..

Have you seen all of the beautiful crochet about in blogland? I love it so much but have always been rubbish at it! I can turn my hand to pretty much anything crafty but crochet has always eluded me.

Well, no more, I am just not having it, I am determined to be able to make lovely crochet items like Amanda, Lynda, Myhandmadehappiness , Joe (and many wonderful others). I wish I lived closer to you guys I would move in and not leave until I could crochet!

So I know very little about it and went and bought some lovely yarns in some lovely colours, not sure they are perfect for crochet but they feel lovely and the colours are so pretty.
I bought some more hooks, as I only have one and I bought a book.

It's not the best book out there and the one I want I couldn't find in town and I needed one now!

So, I am off on my holidays tomorrow and I am staying at the edge of a lovely forest in a house in the Lakes, so I figured that when I get the chance to take a minute for myself I am planning to teach myself to crochet from this book. Wish me luck, I will be sure to let you see what I create, even if it's rubbish!

I will be scheduling some posts for when I am away so you don't forget about me, but if you wonder why I'm not replying it's cause I am crocheting in the Lake District (hopefully)x

I'm like you can turn my hand to just about anything but can I get to grips with crochet nooooooo... and it's so frustrating. Can't wait to see how you get on. Have a nice holiday

Just take your time and follow the directions. You bought some beauties to work with, that's for sure. It sure is easier than knitting :)

Dear Kandi,
Lucky you going to the lakes, I hope you get good weather so you don't have to spend too much time indoors crocheting ;)
I'm really useless at both knitting & crocheting but luckily for me I've got a lovely mum-in-law who is super-duperly good at both.
I wish you all the best of luck in your endevour to learn this great skill & I'm looking forward to seeing what you create.
Take care,

I taught myself to crochet & it was a slow process! Keep at it & it'll come, there's still things I can't do but I keep trying. Enjoy your holiday to the lakes.....hope the weather is good :) x

Alex said...

Have a lovely holiday!

I didn't know you were into crochet - have you checked out the Attic 24 blog? She is soooo crafty and always making beautiful things.

Have a wonderful holiday and look foward to seeing what you can come up with :)

I can crochet Amigurumi items but cannot make granny squares, Ive followed vids on you tube and books but cannot do it grrr!
Good luck with your learning, be warned tho your yarn stash will go wild as did mine. I can`t resist buying yarn in pretty colours.

Attempt #2 at commenting...Crochet is brilliant, and really easy once it has clicked. Good luck!=)

I can't wait to see what you come up with. Enjoy your lake retreat.

Angie said...

Same here Kandi - many people have tried to teach me to crochet but I have never been able to get the hang of it!! Someone offered to teach me again recently, so I might just take her up on it!!! Good luck!
