Hooked on crochet

For a number of years this was the one skill I thought I would never possess. It also was a skill that was not so popular but it has certainly came to the fore now. I doubt I would ever have managed if it hadn't been for u tube as many have tried to teach me. I think if you are a knitter it is more difficult as your mind automatically thinks knitting as in tension and the way you hold your hook.
Blankets and throws are the easiest as you get to learn new stitches and the tension isn't that important because you aren't wearing it size doesn't matter. I made one baby outfit which I found very difficult but got there in the end.
Crochet is much quicker which means I am more likely to finish a project. I generally do not like to make two of the one thing but with all the various wools available thanks to Lulu's stash I have been repeating bunnies.
I am working my way through the range of Wondersoft of which you can see marshmallow above. I also have two throws on the go as well and a Christmas cal.
This is done corner to corner which is a new technique for me and the decreasing took me a while to get used to.

Meeting up with a few other enthusiasts helped.

There are nine in total and I am presently on number four.

The problem is knowing when to stop and get back to my other crafts but I already plan to join another cal mid September.
