So I have finally, helped along by a christmas present, been getting on with crocheting. I have been trying to learn for over a year now. I was in love with zik-zak (english?) crochet, so learned that first. Then on to the granny squares - I love those. So many possibilities. But I couldn't crack getting pass the first row. Today I had a breaktrough! Maybe it was because I started doing it as soon as I got out of bed - addicted? - noooo, lol.
I want to make a blanket as my first crochet thing. Was leaning toward the zig-zag or maybe a granny blanket, because of the smart and modern looking granny over at the purlbee. But I have also been oohing and aahing over different books I have borrowed at the library.
THe outcome so far is, that it is perfect for a busy mom to crochet! I can put it down instantly and continue when I have time.
I had planned for pictures of my crochet test, but the yarn is so ugly (use it for tests only - why did I by it anyway??), so you can't see the pattern.
what the h.. you can look past the ugly yarn, right?!
you can see it's a granny square, right? even though it's army looking, lol.
hang on for final decision on how my blanket will look.
