2nd Crochet Class


Well, it's official... I can now crochet a granny square! The world is mine :) ...well, at least I've secured my entrance criteria for the nursing home! ;) It was a lot easier than I thought. I'm going to have a look at some other methods too... I think the wonderful Meet Me at Mike's craft book has a different design for these things... In the meantime, a new yarn purchase below for your eyes to feast on. It's actually an incredibly smooth cotton... can't wait to start practising my grannies! It's a public holiday in Brisbane today - People's Day at the Royal Show. Have a lovely day :)

I keep meaning to teach myself how to crochet but there always seems to be something else to start/finish. Your granny square looks so good though and I seem to be finding crochet inspiration everywhere I look. I may have to set myself a deadline to learn!

And, thanks for dropping by my place the other day, it's always a pleasure :)

You are my crochet heroine! I love the balls of wool in the second picture - very much a 3-sheets colourway happening there.
Little ultimatum for you on my last blog post BTW - hee hee!

That's awesome! Those make the best kitchen and dusting cloths.

Knew you'd get the hang of it Kylie, can't wait to see what you'll be doing in 6 months time.

Lookin' good, Granny! Now you must be sure to perch those glasses right on the tip of your nose and you'll be set! ;)

You clever crafter you! What a great job you have done!

I have never made a square like this, but I found a whole heap at an op-shop and want to turn them into a scarf.

Love the cotton. Did you get it at the same place you are getting lessons? I have been looking for some more lovely cotton as I have only used Spotlight and Bendigo Mills cotton so far. Might have to make a trip into the City... :)

Hi Kylie
I have been crocheting for coming up one year, I have found it very very addictive. I have just stumbled across your blog and am delighted you named the yarn shop at Newmarket. I live at Aspley and spotlight can be a bit limited so thank-you. Best advice is just to 'keep practising' ( and pulling it out). A great blog I follow is Attic24, she has some easy tutorials (with photos)and she uses colour fantastically.

Ooh, nice! You're very clever, indeed. I have no idea how to crochet.

Mmm, nice colours. Very you! Congratulations for mastering the granny! It's a long way from feeling like you have two left hands when you first start isn't it? Well worth the persevering. XXOO
