Linking up with Jennifer from Thistlebear
I really need to up my game with crochet lark - well all of this crafting malarkey as I've amassed quite a lot of stuff over the past couple of years books & magazines too.
If I'm honest the terminology scared me with regards to crochet instructions, I find knitting easier although I've come to a standstill with a cardigan I'm working on when the next instruction started with 'AT THE SAME TIME' I've put that away until after the Christmas festivities I'm sure I will be able to concentrate then. I think the 'AT THE SAME TIME' instruction is quite easy - my mind keeps on going blank when I see it.
I joined in with the Cherry Heart Spice of Life blanket cal as I wanted to be able to crochet more than just a granny square/stripe. It's been very enjoyable so far the instructions are easy to follow& I can now crochet a stacked granny & a shell. More importantly I know how to crochet a row of doubles & trebles.
My second blanket is just simple granny squares using up some yarn from my granny stripe blanket, always satisfying to use something up isn't it. A random blanket if you like as I pull what ever colour out of my basket & crochet the squares together when I have enough for a row.
Both are easy to work on in the evening curled up in front of the TV & at this time of year very cosy projects too.
Take care all xx
