This past weekend I decided I would teach my friend Hetty how to crochet. I am a huge crochet enthusiast and love being able to spread my yarn hooking love with others! I have already attempted to teach both Jacqui and Lindsay crochet techniques and although I'm not sure either of them were quite as thrilled about hooking as I am, it is always a fun challenge! I really feel that crochet is easier to learn than knitting because if you screw up, you can just unpick a knot or two and try again (unlike when you mess up knitting and need to unravel a ton). Heck, if nothing else it's certainly a great way to spend a weekend afternoon with a pal!
The result? Hetty is a crochet queen! Once she got over the frustrating tension and first row problems she was on a roll. We've decided to make the boot cuffs I posted about last Tuesday together so I taught her how to chain, single crochet, double crochet, and work in spacing! She even whipped up a cute little hair bow out of one her single crochet practise runs and a bobby pin:
How cute is that? Heather is certainly a good sport when it comes to crochet and she's decided to practise up this week and weekend while she is out of town! What fun! Welcome to the world of yarn crafts Hetty - I hope you enjoy your stay!
