But I'll 'fess up instead. Yes, here is my meagre output from a week's earnest endeavours in the Crochet-Along. Its (meant to be) the first round of a granny square. I'll be honest and admit to being so unsure of what I am doing, that I cannot tell if it is crocheted correctly or not!
If you are wondering why it took me so long to get this far, look ye here. See ... now you understand ... right? And for the skeptics, who think I'm simply playing this up a bit and going to whip out large granny rug next week ... no. The sad reality is that I'm missing a gene in the crochet department.
If you're already a dab hand with the crochet hook, I'd be interested to hear how you learnt. Was it from a book? Did someone show you? I'm finding it quite tricky to teach myself, despite the array of excellent websites, books and YouTube videos at my disposal. At least Kirsty left a comment last week pointing out differences in US and Australian stitch names, otherwise I would have been totally flummoxed!
Now over to news from other crochet-alongers:
- Ellieboo had already made the first round for two squares a week ago. Her work looks picture perfect.
- Not only did Sparkly Green Knickers master the granny square last weekend, but she has gone on to be showcased on Craftblog with these luscious squares. Nice work
- Re-do the existing crochet and see if I can get a better finish!
