Along with lots of other bloggers, one of my new year resolutions was to learn to crochet. Everyone seems to be doing it at the moment!
Yesterday was the day! After watching a few tutorials on the internet, a few false starts and lots of unravelling, I finally finished a square - and then another.
My Granny taught me to crochet when I was about nine and I crocheted a huge multi-coloured blanket. There was even a phase in my primary school when all the girls brought their crochet to school and we would sit in the playground and crochet during playtime!
This time I used a large hook, just to help me get the hang of it (no, nothing to do with ancient eyesight). This means that there are large gaps in between wool, but I'm so pleased that I don't mind.
I found a small cushion pad (9" square) and sewed up the squares. I now have a wee cushion. I really want to crochet some smaller squares now that I've got the hang of it. It's a bit addictive, don't you agree?
