Cute Little Crochet...

Hey Everyone...

I hope you're all having a good week so far! It feels so good to know I have a short week this week at work! It's for a special occasion which I will of course blog about soon.

But tonight I have some lovely things to show you! I am smitten...


Whilst having a rather slow day yesterday I searched for some simple crochet tutorials to get my hook into!


I made some more little hearts, which I learnt in January, this time using three sweet coloured yarns!

Then I attempted something new - using a you tube tutorial recommended by Susan at Tea Diary...


Aren't they the cutest! Three little bows! I love them!

Then I decided to go one better and be adventurous! This time a flower, but not just any flower...


...one with two colours! 

I was so proud of myself - this one was following a written tutorial and I am starting to learn the shorthand now!

I have never made a bow, or a flower, or used two different yarns in one thing!

Last night I did all three and I am very proud of myself!


My achievement!

I know it seems silly, I know most of you mastered these skills long ago, but for someone who had never picked up a crochet hook before I feel like a master!


And I love the satisfaction I get from finishing these mini projects so quickly! Instant gratification!

Next I want to make a large heart! I was going to try it last night, but the mention of a rotating chain scared me slightly!


Oooo I am in love with pretty coloured yarns in pretty little shapes!

Love Jewel

  6. Well done! Not silly at all to feel proud, it is a huge achievement. I only learnt a couple of years ago so I still remember that heady feeling of making something from more than one colour! I seem to remember I was so smitten in the early days I sat outside one summer crocheting for hours, neglecting everything else!
    Enjoy the feeling, it will spur you on to even greater achievements!
    Thanks for popping in, and for leaving a comment - glad you found the photos cheery!
