i just wanted to share a few pictures of some of the presents i received over the holiday period. my birthday is on the 30th of december so it was like a week full of celebrations around christmas and new year (the best week of the year i reckon).
anyway, i received a lot of things that i loooooove so very much from friends and family (who are all super people) so thanks to them and here's a little peek at some of the booty...
i think i may have talked too much about my new years resolution to learn crochet because for my birthday i got both a book about learning from my friend george and a starter kit (crochet hook and needles) from the lovely tom. so, i thought i'd keep you posted on my progress - here's what i've done so far:
as you can see i haven't got very far...i think what i've done so far is correct (chain stitch is it?) but i have no idea how to do anything other than keep making a string of stitches like this....i am a bit confused by the book instructions at the moment.
i think learning crochet might be a bit trickier than knitting as my mum was on hand to help me while i was learning to knit but she is a total beginner at crochet too so we're both stuck. dear me.
i'm off to have another bash at it now though - i feel suddenly inspired. wish me luck.
