I’ve been threatening to do this for at least three years, but I never got around to it until now. I guess the acquisition of Granny’s squares just pushed me over the proverbial edge.
So far in the class, I’ve watched the introduction and the overview of the various stitches. I’m confident I can do this!
So I grabbed some of Granny’s yarn and her hook, and got started. (Maybe I should have grabbed some sunglasses while I was at it – that is some vibrant yarn!)
I made my first chain, no problem. Hey, this is easy.
Then I attempted my first row of single crochet, and got lost after the first three (probably bungled) stitches.
All is not lost, though, because I think I’ve taught myself a little something that wasn’t included in the class…
You can’t fry hamburgers and learn how to crochet at the same time. Duh!
Supper is over now, the hamburger was delicious (on a potato roll with a bit of bbq sauce, a squirt of mustard and a crunchy onion ring – yum!) so it’s back to the hook for a second try. I’ll let you know how I do!
