Crochet practice continues!

I'm still persisting with learning to crochet.  I haven't done any for a couple of weeks - and maybe the break did me good as I found it much easier than I remember!

First I tried a magic loop using this youtube video which I found nice and clear.

Then I tried again to understand granny squares - looked at various tutorials and tried bits - but still don't quite get it!

Oh well - I'm sure I'll get there in the end - but for today while I was practising I made a coaster:
I was listening to an Anthony Robbins CD while I was crocheting - so kept forgetting what my counting was up to, or not concentrating properly on which loop I was hooking into next!

But it was a nice relaxing thing to do - and it's a functional, if not perfect drinks coaster!!

If you crochet, knit or sew, what was the first thing you ever made?


  1. I'm glad you're enjoying it! It's very easy to become obsessed with crochet :)
    This is the first thing I ever made... I went straight into a pattern because I didn't have the patience to learn stitches first!
