Well, I carried on....and ended up with this!
I'd like to put a scalloped edge on it but not sure how to do that just yet.
It's not the biggest blanket, but that doesn't matter....
I can still snuggle under it!
So where will it live?
I wondered about Eldest Beas room, but she says it's too scratchy (she has a very sensitive sense of touch, this can be a nightmare when trying to find new clothes!) so not there then.......
Perfect, Little Bea loves it and her Princesses can look after it!
I've found my Hooky Hands! I now know how to handle the yarn, hold the hook, there is some sort of rhythm and flow. I no longer tangle my fingers with the yarn and end up with a spaghetti mess!
Actually when this happened I got soooo excited, made Mr Bea take photo of my hands just in case I forgot! (he already thinks I'm a bit loopy!) of course the next day I had forgot so quickly looked at the photo.....I don't need the photo anymore, 'it' just happens!
Now just need to tie up the loose ends!
And might need to sort out my storage.......
So my Lovelies, what shall I do next? I need some very simple patterns to follow, this one really didn't take much thinking! I need to learn how to crochet in to the chain (yikes!) instead of into the space (much easier!).
My tension is better now, although my back is killing me! 2 hours solid crochet, didn't move, stood up, back hurt......note to self, put the crochet down at regular intervals.....and move!
Any thoughts? Could anyone recommend any simple patterns? What's the best cotton yarn to use, much better for Eldest Beas sensitivity issues!
My first crochet, I'm soooooo happy!
Thank you for your support on the swap think we are almost there, although I'm sorry Renee, at the moment I can't find a swap partner for you. I will update the swap list on my previous post this evening and email those involved!
Bye for now,
Ada :) x x x
p.s. Etsy news, I've been trying to get my fabric on but can't get any photos onto my Etsy site, I upload them from my laptop, does anyone else ever have this problem? Sometimes it has taken ages to upload but at the moment it's impossible! :(
