Learning to Crochet!

Tonight I went along to a beginners crochet workshop at The Make Lounge in Islington.

As you know, I love to knit ... and my mum did teach me how to crochet many years ago - but I have forgotten! It was seeing the lovely images of crocheted squares on the beautiful blog Do You Mind If I Knit? which inspired me to book this workshop - and I am so glad that I did!!

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn a new craft (and there are lots of workshops to chose from!). The first session was three hours long (and it whizzed by!), there was tea & coffee, wine and biscuits and five girls all wanting to learn something new! Tonight we learnt the basic crochet stitches and next week we will be making flowers!!! Very exciting ... I will be spending the next few days practising my stitches!

I will add photos of my little bits of crochet that I did tonight when I am able to move without being attacked by kittens!!

I will let you know how I get on with my crocheted flowers next week!

I've had to classes booked at the Make lounge and didn't attend in the end as I didn't want to go on my own! Silly really!

Maybe we should all arrange a bloggers meet there!
