Crocheting Christmas

Crochet is terribly addictive. (I so want to say I’m hooked on it but I can hear the groans from here…)

I started less than a week ago and I’ve been carrying a hook and yarn with me everywhere since.  Admittedly it helps that I’ve been curled up on a sofa sneezing and feeling sorry for myself.  Mostly, I’ve been making granny squares, of a solid pattern suitable for beginners. I think I’ve got that pattern pretty well fixed in my memory now. Patchwork blanket, here we come…

Only, of course, continuously making granny squares is a bit boring, so I found a more festive pattern. A snowflake. Sort of. I think I need to have another look at the pattern and try again.  More of a star really. Might be the yarn, though. Probably not the most suitable for this pattern. Or the hook was the wrong size.

But otherwise not bad for a first attempt.
