Crocheting Tails… day one… finding fins

New year and time for a new skill. I’ve been wanting to crochet for a long time, I have all the equipment and a mother who is a wonderful teacher, so procrastination no more! This is the start of a short series journaling my exploration of a new craft, CROCHET.

Day one…finding I have fins.

This evening we had a go at learning a few basic stitches, and made a circle-square sort of thing. I learnt (and may even remember) how to “cast on”, apologies for the knitting terminology. Followed by learning chain stitch, treble stitch and slip stitch. Below, four sets of three trebles interspersed with two chain stiches and finished with a slip stitch. Tensions is amusingly terrible. Feeling pumped!Crochet day one
