After many attempts by my mother to teach me to crochet, I am finally on my way. Admittedly I'm a bit slow at it and quite often forget which stitch I'm doing or how to do it but I'm getting there. I can do double crochet and treble crochet but beyond that I'm struggling at the moment. I'm more of a 'show me' to learn type of girl and those crochet patterns are really not help full! The Attic 24 blog is really cool if you are interested in trying http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/(I dream that my efforts may look like hers one day). But in the mean time I'm practising squares to make a blanket......or maybe a scarf as it's taken two weeks to make three squares! Whatever it turns out to be it's a sort of Neapolitan Ice-cream crochet, check out these lush colours!
