I Have Crossed Over......



Yes learning to crochet, after all these years! I tried last year but gave up but this year I have promised myself a scarf and so far so good, I think it is coming along okay for a beginner. I am finding the first round the hardest for some reason and once I get into the secound round it is easier, but when compared to my memories of my early knitting attempts it is much easier and as yet I haven't hurled it across the living room! I am using the Patons Learn To Crochet and the scarf is made from Patons Inca on a nice big 8mm crochet hook so it grows quickly!



Another scarf, this one is in my Etsy shop and was inspired by a big bowl of freshly picked raspberries topped with fresh cream, yum! I have started another one which will be coffee latte, after my favourite day time beverage, hmmmm note to self must make a merlot one.

I have lots of WIPS at the moment which I will reveal over the next few weeks, all going well, oh well till next time, happy knitting.

Congrats on learning a new skill!

The scarf is absolutely lovely, what a clever idea putting a frou frou edge on the side.

You are so smart!

Love the scarf & it does look yummy with those colors. It's great that you can crochet & I have been wanting to learn too but there's so much to knit...maybe one day, I will join you. Happy crocheting!

Well done with the crocheting Sharon. I always find granny squares tedious, with all the colour changes.
You are amazing - how do you accomplish so much?

Wow - learning to crochet! I tried it for the first time on the weekend. Felt wierd - only one needle! Haven't yet found a simple pattern that I can begin with. Good luck with your scarf - looks great so far!

I just found your blog and I love, LOVE everything you make! I just learned to crochet this year also and it's been coming in handy edging and accenting my knitting projects so far.

It's a beautiful needle art. I'm not sure why it's gotten so many negative vibes going world wide. lol

You are doing very well and your crochet is lovely.
