I would just like to wish the new crocheting group in Enniskillen the very best of luck with this new venture.
They met for the first time last night and I went along to get them started. They are all new to the art of crochet so it was quite challenging for all concerned as it was a BIG group. But we got there in the end with a few laughs and a few big sighs!! Everyone went home with at least one row of crochet completed and all the knowledge needed to complete a simple treble scarf.
So A big WELL DONE to you all and you can give yourselves a pat on the back!!
Next week we are going to master the art of a granny square. These can be tricky to get started but they are the base of many patterns and a lovely and simple thing to learn. You can use up all your odds and ends on these squares and then join all up and make a blanket, bag, waistcoat, scarf or anything at all. All you need is a big of imagination. We made bags last year from a slight variation of this square and they are lovely. Great for keeping your knitting in or taking to the beach on those far of summer holidays!!
