A Bit of History
So thinking about crochet and general craftiness, I thought it would be nice to have some crochet appreciation from across the decades.
Soon after learning to crochet, I won a peggy square competition at the local wool shop, with my winning granny square! I was beyond excited and took home a big bag of blue wool that I got to choose all by myself, and a latch hook set with a huge frog picture. I can still remember how proud I was.
But somewhere around 10 years old I'm guessing, I didn't want to do any of that crafty stuff anymore and promptly forgot all about it until a few years ago when suddenly I had the urge to re-learn. So off I trotted to the shops and bought a 'how-to' book and a crochet hook. It took a few days to get back into it and the stitch names confused me terribly (I still have them all written in a notebook in step-by-step directions!). It's all history now though - I can't imagine ever wanting to stop.
here. I will list some more crochet items soon and keep my fingers crossed that someone actually wants to buy something!! It's all good fun in the meantime.
Have a fabulous week! See you soon.
