Learning to Crochet

If you follow me on Instagram (or happen to know me in real life), then you will know that my beloved grandmother died in August at the grand old age of 104. Mere had two hobbies – drinking whiskey and crocheting. Since I don’t like the taste of whiskey, I thought I would commemorate her by learning how to crochet.

So a few weeks ago I went on a beginner’s crochet class run by Grace & Cable. I am not one of those people who can just learn something by watching youtube or reading a book. So I wanted to find a class that was held during the day, while the children are at school. And maybe crochet is beginning to be cool, because I found a few classes to choose from.

Anyway, I have been practicing my crochet most days. I am planning to begin a scarf soon. Not like the crochet tablecloths my grandmother used to make, but I’m doing crochet my own way. And she would be proud of that.

  1. I’ve always wished I could knit or crochet like my Nan especially as at 97 she can no longer do it. Being left handed and clumsy I find it so hard. I made a tiny snowman and mini stocking decorations a few years ago. I got my crochet bag out last week as I really want to try again and I’ve made a little pumpkin for my Halloween tree. I’m hoping I can find the time to do more and move on to bigger projects.
