Hello everyone, welcome to my blog, I am a recently new self-taught chrocheter and a brand new blogger as of today. I have never done this before so it is all new to me so please bear with me.
I have to confess that I have become literally hooked (pardon the pun), I started out just making scarves for the Christmas Shoe Box appeal, then onto hats and I will now give anything a try (literally anything). I started knitting as a way of stress relief and could never get my head around using just a hook my fingers would just not work right, I couldn’t hold the yarn, I kept dropping the hook, I couldn’t keep a straight line oh it was a nightmare but then one day it just clicked into place. I have not picked up needles since! For me it has been the best form of stress relief and has in a way changed my life, which I haven’t really appreciated till recent times.
Starting out making something for the less unfortunate gave me a great sense of pride, knowing that children who desperately need basic supplies will be kept warm through a winter with something that I had made them, well lets just say this made my heart swell.
I then quickly started to get really good feedback from friends and family, then came the requests, then came the Facebook page and now here I am with no clue as to what I am doing (ha ha), learn as I go I guess.
So to start with I plan to share with you thoughts and tips (hopefully) on hooks and yarn, I am no expert by any means but if I can help someone I will so ask away.
I will be adding pictures of my makes and a note about each covering how easy / hard the patterns where, what I changed if anything to make it easier etc.
I will soon post a little history of the progression I have made in the last few years and add pictures along the way to we can get up to date, then as we go through my journey together I will be breaking each project down with you and giving you my thoughts and feelings of each piece.
Thank you for reading this brief Welcome
Be back soon
