To Crochet or not to Crochet?
I went a bit mad this weekend. Brought a huge pile of the most beautiful sewing and cooking books. I LOVE books and haven't treated myself in ages. I know everything is available on the internet these days, but I believe nothing beats flicking through the pages of a beautiful book.
One of the books I brought was Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench. I spent a wonderful session being taught how to crochet by an entertaining 80 year old lady months ago, but do you think I could remember how to do it when I got home? This book has very clear illustrations and some really cute projects. I spent some time last night trying to perfect the little flowers, and tonight I made a ball for the baby to play with. I am determined to perfect the art of Crochet! We are hoping to make a trip to Vietnam later this year and I'd love a big pile of crochet flower hair clips to give out to the children. I am going to keep the wool and hooks in a tote next to the couch, so when I am finally relaxing in the evening (yes, that sometimes does happen) I can click away with my hook and still be creating.
