Totally hooked . . .
Isn't this pretty? Sweet Peas from the garden and the start of a crochet lap warmer for next winter (in similar colours). My eldest daughter was doing some crochet when she was here and I wanted to start on a granny squares throw. I was tired though, and kept losing track of the pattern so I threw up my hands in disgust and unravelled it.
Then two nights ago, I was looking through a crochet book and thought I would try just a simple stripey pattern, each row a different colour. Well, that was it - I made a looooooooooooong foundation chain and got cracking. First night, 3 rows, and I picked it up after breakfast yesterday and hooked for 2 hours! And again at every spare moment in the day and am now about a dozen rows to the good.
This was progress as at teatime last night. I know there are some errors but it's just for me, and I can live with them and learn from my mistakes.
