Arrgggg Crochet! I will Love you!

How fiddly is this. Stupid me I thought..well I have an old step by step book and some nice wool , and a mug of small cakes but arggggggghh!

My fingers don't work properly. I won't give up. I will make a granny square ;0)

So every lunch break I will try to master it...any tips would be welcome!

Oh I nearly forgot...wanted to show you what I did with some 'samples' of Cath Kidston Circus Wallpaper..well I framed them and put them in the Bathroom. Sorry the picture isn't very good, but don't you just love getting samples! Thought I would post some Hearts too as Valentines Day is nearly here!!


PS 2 more sleeps til the weekend!

I'm glad I'm not the only only struggling with crochet! I don't know what happens to me when I try to do it - even with the best instructions - it ends up looking like a tangly mess, with goodness knows how many stitiches where there shouldn't be stitches!!!! Aaaarrrgghh indeed!

Keep at it, you'll crack it eventually.
Good luck and look forward to seeing that first granny square.

The fabric looks great in the frame...what a good idea... think I'm heading to CK now!!
You may find it easier for someone to show you how to crochet, why not ask in your local wool shop?? I'm sure anyone would be happy to help. I'm starting a group next month to help people with knitting & crocheting...shame you don't live in Exeter :( keep at it :)

LOVE the framed sample. So cute!

I wonder if you'd do it better with a different colour wool ... dark colours are very hard to see properly sometimes. Just a thought.
Or what about being someone's shadow? They hold your hands and guide them the right way - knitting can be shown the same way if you want to learn that I know.
