Back to School

For several years I've been trying to start learning to crochet. I've made a single crochet bathmat, half of a double crochet shawl and I have a start on a scarf. Everything has wonky ends due to me not knowing exactly where the last stitch is or isn't. 
Then I heard about Craftyminx Crochet School Hallefreakinlujah! Finally, a video series on beginner crochet! Now I could watch as someone who actually knew what they were doing stuck their hook in the right place! Now I know where I should be sticking, and not sticking, my hook.

It's not great so far, but it's progress.

Half Double Crochet


  1. Awesome Katie! I am totally going to watch, I too have been dying to learn to crochet, bought the needles and some books, but I am still lost! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I found this blog post - - about granny squares from Meet me at Mikes my pivotal moment with crochet. Its fab with video links and clear instructions. I am going to check out your link about too.
