|My very first 'granny square'|
After dinner and bedtime for my son each evening, I sit with my husband and we watch some television or a movie, or we read or chat. I have often wished I had something to do with my hands during these times so... I did some research and decided to try crochet!
A trip to Spotlight for a crochet hook and some yarn later and I am well on my way to understanding the basics of this new craft. I have practised my chain stitch, double crochet and treble crochet and finally came up with a completed 'Granny Square'. My level of pride in my crochet is probably rather too high for such a modest achievement and I have no idea how to tie off my work, but I feel very clever. Whoever invented crochet had the right idea... a simple hook, a few simple stitches, fast progress and mistakes that can be corrected by simply removing the hook and pulling the yarn until the offending stitches disappear. I'm officially hooked!
