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?
