Yesterday evening, with some trepidation, I headed out for my first (of two) beginner's crochet class. I had been told we would be making a hat and possibly a flower. Here's how I got on. It was undone quite a few times and I had the dubious pleasure of being the slowest crocheter there. I have to say, at this stage, I am not sure my attempt will ever become a hat!
I am the sort of person who talks severely to inanimate objects if they fail to do what I insist they need to do (my work colleague, Leanne, can verify this as I am often to be found telling the computer/printer/other inanimate office equipment off). The wool needed to be spoken to several times (much to the amusement of the other people in the class). I know that my attempt is far from perfect and, to be honest, I am not sure that crochet and I will have a long-term relationship, but we shall see. I would like to be able to make granny squares, ripple patterns and flowers...hmm...
I am also rather concerned because I have put my crochet down and haven't done any today, so when I do pick it up again, will I:
1. Be able to find where I was in the pattern?
2. Be able to remember how to do the stitches - tr 3, ch3, tr 3, or was that tr 3, ch 1, tr 3? Or something else altogether?!
Wish me luck next week!
