So I went to the second crochet course run by Bee and Claire of 'Make Do Mend' and now I am an unstoppable granny square machine I tell you. I wish I could go somewhere lovely like the Tea Rooms every Thursday evening and just practice crochet. It's so nice to have tea and cake on tap in this lovely shop which quite frankly is always so full of people normally, I can never get in. They had a big basket of wool to select your choices from and I got a green hook which I am very enamored of.
It took us the whole session to makes these two squares but we really feel that we could do it on our own now.
Some people were storming ahead but it was great as they had quite a few patterns they gave you which varied in skill level.
I really feel that I am getting there with how to hold the yarn and get the tension right. The following day I had to get up at 4.45 and get a ridiculously early train to near Brighton. It was great as the time flew by and I didn't feel stupid when people watched what I was doing.
I think I am going to make the cushion I set out to make before I try any of the more advanced squares. Not long to go now!
