And so it begins. I’m teaching myself to crochet. Bird laughed when he saw me wrestling with the hook and joked about me officially being a nanna now. Hey, I say, whatever old man, I know crochet is cool. Besides, crochet is helping me stay young by keeping my brain whirring and learning new things. I make no excuses!
When I saw Kat Goldin was running a Crochet Camp I jumped at the chance to learn. I’m always admiring other people’s crochet projects and the chance to learn with a little hand holding from experienced crochet peeps was too good to pass up. The other thing that appealed was the kit. Whenever I’ve looked into crochet for beginners in the past I’ve been baffled by what yarns to start with, what hooks I need and what patterns to begin.
This is learning to crochet for (ever-so-slightly) lazy people. All the hard work has been done for me by Kat. I have my crochet kit at the ready and I’m well underway.
I’m seeing yarn over, pull through, when I close my eyes at night as I’m staying up late weaving the thread together…and loving it.
