I have just enroled in a Crochet class with Ali (followed her on twitter for a while). I tried to crochet many moons ago and never did manage to make the chain to get started so I gave up. Lacemaking was the something new to learn in 2012, which I started in September). Crochet is the something to learn in 2013. I thought I would get started before I have to start making samples for my quilting classes which start up again at the end of September.
I checked my stash of knitting goodies and found two crochet hooks, a 9 and a 5. Wrong size for the class and I don't have chunky yarn, I really don't like chunky yarns I like the finer things in life. However Ali, the teacher, recommends chunky and so I shall have to go buy some and a new crochet hook. Will get a 4mm and some double knitting yarn while I am there for future crochet - if I ever get past the beginning chain. It is an online course, which I love, so I can go at my own pace ....... slowly taught through Coursecraft.net.
I wonder when this snow will ever disappear as I am anxious to get my potatoes in. Norman's asparagus has arrived and needs to be planted. I am so glad we went and sorted out the allotment a few weeks ago when we have ONE lovely day. At least it is all done and ready for when the weather gets warmer.
Thanks for dropping by.
