For the longest time, I have wanted to learn how to crochet (anything other than a long, tight chain…LOL) I tried many times, but I just could not seem to get it. My husband gave me a gift card to Joann’s craft store for Christmas and I was determined to find a book that would teach me, step by step to crochet. I found one called “I Can’t Believe I’m Crocheting”. The book is very good, with detailed step by step instructions and photos. I still felt I needed visual instruction though, so I went to their website and took an online class as well. That helped me tremendously! I now know how to chain (loosely…LOL), single crochet, and half double crochet. Soon I will move on to double crochet and treble crochet, but for now, I am thrilled with what I can already do! I feel like its taken me years to get to this point! LOL But all I needed was the right instruction!
For my first project, I decided to make a small baby afghan. I am just doing half double crochet rows, but I am pretty happy with how its coming out….even if my tension is a bit off. I know I will get better with practice.
I am definitely going to be looking for more beginner projects. I am just having too much fun with this!! 🙂
