Hooking For Fun…

When I was pregnant with my knucklehead, my mommy darling taught me a few crochet stitches and I crocheted pretty edges on my baby boy’s receiving blankets. I never crocheted again, though I have no idea why.

I kept finding pretty patterns on Pinterest, and I found a pattern book for Amigurumi animals and I decided I had to learn to crochet properly so I could follow the patterns.

My first attempt at a granny square… This and several afterwards were round every time!

Trying different stitches while learning to manage my tension and watching YouTube tutorials…

Getting better at Granny Squares…

Another kind of stitch I’m practising

Then I gave up on granny squares for a while and started doing circles. That definitely helped me get better at the tension and the proper grip on my wool and my hook…

And then I made a few more granny squares and what do you know – they’re square!

The hand cramps might just kill me though…
