I've never crocheted before but have not only always wanted to learn but also wanted to learn how to read a crochet pattern.  When I mentioned this to my friend Margaret she gave me a set of crochet hooks.  So I've been having a little bit of a play. 

I've started by making a couple of little bun snoods with the wool I already have.  They only take about 30 mins to make once one knows what one is doing.

I used Double Knit Wool and a 4mm crochet hook.

I learned how to make these quicky snoods by watching a couple of Youtube videos.  I still haven't learned how to read a pattern yet, but once I know all the stitches I should be able to know what I am reading.

I might try making a hat next.

Well done Sandy. That's a great start especially teaching yourself from videos.

Aimee took the pee a bit when she visited today seeing me with one on my head, lol.  But one has to start small.

So far by making the bun snoods I now know how to crochet a treble and a half double and their pattern abreviations.

Next I will try a hat.  I think I have enough of the mauve coloured wool to make one with without having to spend out money for wool yet.

Well done Sandy Smile

I always have loved crocheting but haven't done anything with it in the last few years.
Still have some hand towels I can do like the ones I send you Sandy.

I love those hand towels.  They have come in really handy.

I love to crochet , but don't have the patients for all the fine yarn work, so I like working with Bernard cotton yarn , it's thicker ..  But its expensive , and I can't find it around here , Zellers went out of business  , maybe will try Amazon again soon
