Hallo my Friends!
How did you learn to crochet, or who taught you?
Crochet has been in my life for a long time, over 50 years. When I was a wee bit girl of about 6, my grandmother Poldi, who was a seamstress from profession, gave me my very first own crochet hook and a ball of yarn and declared it was time for me to learn to make things for myself. Until than I loved to watch her work on many different things, from sewing, to knitting and of course crocheting.
My Granny was a very patient woman, even so her schedule was very full with a big family and also with the sewing she did for other people and her family, but also a huge garden. I really don't know how she managed it all, but somehow she did.
Well from that ball of yarn my first potholder came to life. It looked pretty bad, if I remember correctly, but my Granny had nothing but praise for me. You got to love her just for that. So a new passion had been born, as I from that point in time never put down my needle again, well maybe for a minute or two, but never for long.
Granny also taught me to sew and knit, which I still both do from time to time, but my passion will always be with Crochet. Thank you Granny!
Now a little update: This has been a rather hectic week for me and continues to be that way, but I did manage to crochet quite a few more rows on one of my Hall of Shame projects, the Granny Stripe Afghan ala Attic 24. I think the colors are starting to really pop out and I am having fun once again working on it. It might become a finished project yet, lol.
Thought I would leave you all today with a couple more pictures that speak of Spring time finally being here.
See me initials spelled out in Daffodils?
How cool is that?
Till next time.......
