To start with, I needed some tools and materials...
|Crochet tools and materials|
Some crochet hooks of my very own (I am sure this will help keep Susan's hooks from going missing). Some lovely fibers to work with (I am not sure I am worthy of them yet - that blue stuff is silk!) And a booklet on beginning crochet techniques and patterns.
You can see, in the middle of the picture, I have managed to do a short section of chain stitch. I will be posting my triumphs and tragedies in this new arena as they occur, perhaps on a new day of the week. I am not giving up tatting at all; I just want to try something where mistakes are easier to correct for a change.
More to come!
