This year I set myself the challenge of learning to crochet. I have to say I am quite pleased with myself... I have mastered the basic stitches and even managed to finish a few projects. My problem is following patterns. I find them horribly confusing and tend to just give up. I can work things out from photos but the patterns just make my brain ache!!
But last month I decided to treat myself to some good yarn rather than the pond shop cheap stuff I'd been using til then. I bought a one of skein in Tulips as part of the Woollywumpkins Pure Wool Appreciation Club. When it arrived I realised it was too beautiful to waste so decided to make the effort to follow a pattern..
And so here it is..my first following a pattern crochet item... and I have to say I am quite pleased!! A couple of change I need to make..but on the whole NOT BAD! ;)
