Popped in to Hobbycraft for more supplies last week and saw the sign for a crochet demonstration this week. This basically just made for a good excuse to go back to Hobbycraft again on Saturday so I could see the demo, (and buy more supplies of course!)
I've often been told that crochet is easier than knitting, but to be honest I was never entirely convinced. However, after a few minutes of watching the demo the lady handed me the crochet hook and wool and asked if I wanted to give it a try. That was it, I was hooked.
Admittedly I need to work on keeping the tension right, I have the same problem with my knitting, however the actual stitches are actually quite easy and the best thing is, it's so simple to undo and correct if you make a mistake!
I can see now that this is the start of a new hobby... not sure how I'll find the time to fit it in between all my other craft projects but I'm certainly going to try...
