Loving crochet

I don't get a lot of time for anything lately, let along doing crafty things for the love of it.

I have been staring at the art of crochet for ages, and hinted constantly to my mum how I would love a patchwork looking crochet blanket. Mum's a busy person too and I think by the time I ever got one, my kids would have moved out. Instead of waiting, as I can be a little impatient, I want to give it a go myself.

I am just loving all of the crocheted pieces below, with a slight obsession, they are so polished looking and divine. Each piece would definitely have a purpose in my house, so easily.


There is one problem........I don't know how to do it.

I am hoping to find some time over the weekend to research some handy idiot proof DIY tutorials online. At least I could then pick up the things I need and have a go. If anyone can offer some tutorials they know and have been successful for the, I would appreciated them sent my way.

A friend showed me a few basic stitches earlier this year and with the use of a few tutes on youtube I was away.

I love these images you have shown...beware crochet is highly addictive and once you start you can't stop :)

Hi..I reckon the 'royal sisters' blog is the best for afghan squares and tutes on youtube are great for teaching you the basic stitches. All the best.

I taught myself over the last couple of weeks thanks to YouTube. Check out my blog lilpipdesigns.blogspot.com as I just shared a pic of my first attempt granny squares and my favourite YouTube videos.

I'm loving it. Snuggling in bed, watching a movie and crocheting my granny squares. Planning a blanket for each of my owlets.

Have fun
