Since, I posted about my knitting journey, it inspired me to try and learn crocheting. So, I went out got a needle (4.5mm). I did not know exactly how to choose a needle, after browsing various sizes I chose something which I thought is of a medium size. And, as for yarn there is plenty of left-over from knitting projects for learning purposes.
This time via the internet;You Tube channel is my teacher. I searched videos for 'left handed crochet' and came up with several.
These two sites have good instructions for any beginner and special instructions for left handers.
While watching the demonstrations I took down notes in a way I can understand, and after several failures manged to do the samples of each stitch. [not photographed well]
|single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet and treble crochet|
|all the stitches in one piece|
As I have not crocheted anything exciting to show, I am posting some of the pretty things I found at church garage sale near my house this past weekend.
ladies handkerchiefs....few of them got so dainty work and one of them still in the package marked 'made in switzerland'.
few balls of yarn ,couple of crochet needles ..and some beautifully done crochet lace [ reminds me of my grandmother's work]
fabric, a hand embroidered runner and a pretty picture.
Thank you for stopping by,
Until next time,
