My first attempt at crochet

And I have impressed myself.  The pattern is really easy with you tube tutorials to ensure that you understand it all.

Oh lovely, a crafty post  :excited:
Buttermilk that's gorgeous! it must have been fun to make.


For some reason I did not one tiny bit of craft stuff from the very first days of the pandemic until the day before yesterday. Now I have begun knitting a jumper with a giant cone of Hebridean yarn, spun for me 9 years ago by the Halifax lads, (with lots of other cones too), plus a cone of 'orangutan' mohair from World of Wool (at great expense), knitted together.  I've nearly done the welt, bottom up (I tried top down starting a few years back with bought yarn, hated the process which is possibly why I did nothing for so long - it's not finished yet, lurks evilly in a knitting bag). Everyone is talking about things that are good for your mental health and I am so happy just knitting the right way up :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit: :knit:

Cool! two colours as well!


I always thought that crochet is the slightly less cool sister to knitting... but since my left wrist is now really quite arthritic and knitting is now impossible, I have started to use up may remaining batch of Shetland wool and am turning it into a giant granny square, just going round and round (it's a square) until I run out... (and with the central heating off this winter it will be very useful as a lightweight but still quite warm blanket round the house).

You still only use one colour per row.  Only two stitches a double and a treble.  Really, really easy to do and the stitch count remains the same all the way through.

This is really warm for those chilly times.
