So I kinda fell into this one - hanging out at the sewing cafe I try to get to when I can a friend of mine re-taught me to crochet. My Mum and You-Tube have taught me on a few occasions however I never seemed to quite get going.
I think this time round the cold weather and desire for a calm and peaceful pastime spurred me on. I set off and practiced a few stitches eventually resulting in me simply stitching round and round in circles.
This didn't exactly turn into anything but it got me going and got me used to how I manage the tension - little fingers are key for this one for me!
Then I found this super simple tutorial on you-tube. Simple and slow really is exactly what was required for me at this stage I'm afraid. If you fancy a go this is the link I used Crochet Blanket
