Thanks to a helpful post on the LSG group over on Ravelry, I’m going to take the plunge this summer and actually learn to crochet.
Crochet School is the brilliant product of the craftyminx. I may actually learn more than the absolutely rudimentary skills I remember my Nanna showing me a very, very long time ago. I recently had to crochet an edging around this hat:
I had absolutely no clue how to do it, but with the help of the interwebs, and this helpful video from Hooked on Needles, I figured it out. It made me slightly ashamed that I had been ignoring crochet as an option for so long and prompted me to think about what I could do to change that. Hopefully, I’ll be able to work through all the lessons this summer. Who knows what I might be inspired to make?
