OK, this might seem pretty basic to all you crochet experts out there, but this is quite an achievement for me. Although I've been knitting for 30 plus years, I only dabbled with crochet once as a teenager. I produced a pile of random granny squares that were subsequently shoved into a plastic bag and stashed somewhere at Mum and Dad's house. Recently I asked Mum what had happened to them, and she told me they had been donated to a local charity that had sewn them together into a lovely blanket for an old folks' home. So, many, many years later I decided to try my hand at crochet again. After a few abysmal attempts that didn't resemble anything decent, I started to make a little progress.
I feel this is the beginning of great things to come....!!
I'll be using these practice pieces as face cloths. The crochet produces a slightly denser fabric than knitting. These samples are made from our DK 100% linen.
