Yes that's right ladies (and any gentlemen), I've finally taken the bull by the horns, plucked up courage and picked up a crochet hook.
After 1 hour I had made half an attempt at holding the wool correctly in my hands and getting the slip knot right - yes that's right, 1 hour without even having done anything. So much for anticipating a nice stack of granny thingies by the end of the day!!
After the 2nd hour I had sort of managed to do 6 foundation stitches. This was after watching a you tube tutorial and looking through 2 of my books!! I do think I'm doing something dreadfully wrong as I'm just not getting it at all. The tension keeps going awol and I forget then how to do a foundation stitch.
Into the 3rd hour I have now lost the will to live and have thrown my toys out of the pram like a child and have discarded it (just the mess I had made!).
I think I have tried to run before I can walk as I gallantly tried to do a single crochet whatever and then that's when it all went even messier.
Boo Hoo. (note to self - stick to knitting and sewing). There is always something in life you are unable to master and for me it's crochet......
I'm now going to take myself off and sit in the corner to cry!!!!!!!!!!
