I love crochet - it's such a relaxing way to while away an hour or so. It's something you can do as a passenger in a car, on a train, on the beach, and it's incredibly rewarding. I've taught myself over the years, largely using the Hamony Guides. If you crochet, you'll know the fun of it. If you don't, try it. It's incredibly easy. I've not crocheted for a year or so, so this w/e, when I had some time, I got back into it.
First, my bedside bunny shows the pile of crochet I've been working on:
I used a kit of flowers, but also a book...
And the flowers I did this w/e. I'm thinking of joining them to make a small mat for the table.
And a practise heart:
I've borrowed a couple of books from the library. This one is fab, and I'm planning an afghan. I'll let you know how I get on with building the blocks!
If you haven't tried it, get crocheting!
