This year I am learning to crochet together with my youngest daughter.
I've been practising but still haven't progressed to actually making anything yet!
I've learnt that for me the easiest colour to work with (of the random selection of wool I have) seems to be yellow!
In yellow - I seem to be able to see the loops and stitches much clearer than other colours!
I also learnt that counting those stitches is very important.
I found a nice simple Amigurumi tutorial, and thought I'd give it a go!
I wasn't always sure I was sticking my hook in the right loops, but it seemed to be going OK.
I also lost count....LOTS and ended up with a much larger circle than I should have had! At that stage I abandoned the tutorial not wanting to end up with a giant Amigurumi monster!
It did give me lots of practice and I think my crocheting is getting neater and a bit more even.
I'm going to have another try at another pattern later and concentrate on my counting!
Maybe I'll manage to make a little monster if I get it right this time.
I'll be sure to share lots of pictures when I get there!
I'll be linking this post up with My Creative Space over at Kidspot.
