Last week when I visited my mum she showed me how to crochet. Well she showed me how to make a chain, how to hold the wool and then she began to show me how to make a granny square. I managed to make two little bits of something ( in the picture above) which do at least bear some resemblance to crochet.
Turns out I wasn't listening to my mother carefully enough ( oh how many times I have wished I had listened more carefully!). Today I was unable to construct anything more than a wobbly chain. My fingers felt like feet, I couldn't hold the wool, the hook kept falling out. It was a disaster! There was much under breath muttering and foot stamping. I gave up. 2010 is Crochet Year!
