Lately I have been crocheting - but it started a while ago, in August. It was very cold, windy, dry month in Bloemfontein, and there were many fires. But one Friday my Mom's old friend came to visit and she stayed until Sunday. Her name was Carmen, and she brought plenty of scarves and wool and needles. Grace and I were inspired. Well, Carmen was mostly into knitting, so she taught Grace that; but, she did know crocheting so she and my Mom helped me learn. I started a scarf and when she had left (we had a lovely time with her) I dropped out and stopped, so did Grace.

A couple of days ago we found our scarves and started again! It's relaxing and fun, so why don't you try sometime? : )
As you can see, I haven't got very far. But I'm getting faster everyday.My colour scheme is dark blue, light purple and creme.
We have a few books on crocheting, and the pieces of artwork in them amaze me. This book is called '200 crochet blocks for blankets, throws and afghans' by Jan Eaton. I am enjoying my new hobby so much!
