I'VE NEVER CROCHETED!!!!

But i've always wanted to!!
Hey there folks, As a child i always remember my mum and my late nan always crocheting or knitting, they both tried to teach me to knit but i wasn't having any of it and instead took up embroidery at the age of 5/6 I remember my mum drawing a flower or something similar onto waste white cotton sheets, giving me a needle and thread and me embroidering it, i so wish i had some to show you! Anyhow, i have never crocheted at all in my life, but last year, on a visit to my mum's i asked her for a crochet needle and any spare bits of wool (as she doesnt knit/crochet anymore) i asked my mum to show me one basic stitch, it is the one stitch i know. So, i didn't do anything and put the wool and needle to oneside. Recently i have been scanning the internet for some of my favourite things.....crocheted lace, doilys, and crocheted flowers, and they are sooooo expensive, so i thought last night, why not try to make some myself, now i am no expert, but i watched a couple of tutorials, wrote a few things down, added some bits from each and took away bits i didnt like, these are very basic but they came out ok, if not too big (the first one) but i dont mind i will use it on a journal cover or a box!
So here they are, in all their glory, or not as the case maybe! Please be gentle with me, these are my very first attempts at crocheting






Thankyou for looking have a brilliant day!! Lots of Love Vick xxx

  2. Hi Vick, your flowers are fab, did they take you long? it is along time since I did any crocheting, so this may be a silly question. Did you build it up by crocheting round and round, with the circle getting bigger? I made a blanket many moons ago....thanks for the inspiration....I am going to go and see if my hook is in my sewing box...I do hope so...big hug me 2 you. X

  6. These are a joy Vick and you should be very proud of them. You are right, they would cost an arm and a leg from certain craft companies. Here's a thought - I've seen some beautiful crocheted leaves and little flowers used on earrings, as they are so light if small in size and made with finer wool. Hope you persevere with your new found talent. Hugs, Buttons x
