Learning To Crochet | Persevere... Inspiring Crochet
Ok! So... as you lovely readers know I am teaching myself how to crochet!! I started off using Tshirt yarn for a project over at RVA Summer Camp...
This book is Glorious Things to Do by Rosemary Davidson incase youre wondering. Anywho.. this tshirt yarn.. is THE DEVIL! when trying to learn lol.. i could count my holes and they ended up looking like a crochet donut after my first attempt at double stitch!! Ive started with some thick wool now and it took a couple of hours and woo!!
... you guys have NO IDEA how much your wonderful comments in the last post helped me to not give up! I was so close but you were all so lovely.
We can pretend this is a welcome matt for a very very tiny person but alas.. as my first crochet attempt i didnt want to make it massive! So its big enough that i can fit into a frame and remember the time that i finished my first piece of crochet ever.. and im going to love it with its imperfections and dropped stitches because this is part of the learning process. WIth my new found love for crochet i went searching... and... these images.. omg.. I cant wait until i learn all types of crochet! My whole house is going to be covered.
This i would happily make myself!! But i cant crochet yet lol. Just you wait until i can do more than a single stitch! This stool is from RICE DK and is so fabulous.. it would look amazing in my living room... and would be fabulous to keep a sewing kit in! Or even magazines..
This is so cute!! This garland is made by Super Ninon on Flickr! I absolutely love her. (she creates the most amazing plushies!)
I cant wait until i can do these but im just taking baby steps lol. Source
