Crochet Love

As I mentionned a few posts ago, a group of us at work are currently learning how to crochet. This is one craft that I've been wanting try for ages, an attempt last year never got me anywhere so this time I was determined I was going to master the technique, lol.

Several hours of concentration later, I got it!

I'm having so much fun with my first project, some granny squares to turn into a dolly's blanket.
Only I've had a bit of a hiccup - on Friday night I broke my crochet hook! It was just a plastic one. After visting both the local wool shops yesterday to find another 4.5mm, neither had them in stock so what's a girl to do - start another project using a different sized hook! I'll check out with my co-workers on Monday to see if any of them have the size I'm after.
Thanks for stopping by :)

Good on you trying crochet Katrina. Its not too bad a hobby. Used to do it a few years ago, using up all my wool to make knee rugs for the people in the rest home where my Dad was. Here is an online shop that sells crochet hooks - all sizes :)

Those squares so cute and colourful! I did crochet an afghan for my DH but I haven't really done any since and I never did learn to do the granny squares. I may have to ask my mom to show me as they could be very fun to work on!
