Happy new year! I may have had a bit of a blog break for the festivities but I didn’t stop crafting.
I spent the Christmas and new year period in beautiful Breckenridge in Colorado skiing with my husband and friends. However one day I had to stay home alone as I was sick so it was the perfect day to try to learn to crochet.
It was reminiscent of week 11 (gosh was it really that long ago?) in that I tried to jump straight into a pattern (a flower) without knowing the basics so much unravelling ensued.
In the end I managed to get a wireless connection and found these brilliant instructions – I never got further than making the chain stitch friendship bracelets but at least I know the basics now so I can try a flower or a granny square soon.
I even managed to show my husband how to do it!
I’m looking forward to a 2011 full of crafting. Do you have any crafty new year’s resolutions?
