Phew, that was a long day! I met my lovely ladies at 9.30 this morning, we started by doing a bunch of paperwork, then on to the real business of the day… learning to hold the hook and yarn (which they could all do quite happily!) and making a chain, then on to a sample, making a treble crochet, and working in rows.
We had a coffee break with delicious handmade biscuits, then back to work making holes – deliberate ones! Which can be the basis of Filet crochet.
Lunch was lovely – shepherds pie or quiche and salad, with a delicious banoffee pie!
After lunch – Granny squares!!! lots of counting and memorising of the pattern, but also colour changing, and how best to sew in ends – during the afternoon another coffee break and freshly made little doughnuts and then back to the grannies, we concentrated on making 3 round squares, some in the same colours, some in multi colours, we finished at 5pm, and then I stayed and set up the room for tomorrow, with worksheets, and lots more yarn to wind!
An overall delightful day, and I am looking forward to tomorrow and wrestling with the ripple!
