{week 29} crochet (at altitude)

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?

    Hi! Long time reader, first time poster :) Just wanted to let you know that your post inspired me to teach myself how to crochet – thanks to your link and YouTube, I’m halfway through a scarf which, despite a number of unravellings, is on its way, and I have learnt another very useful craft. All the best for 2011 and keep up the great work on the blog :)
