My new FAVE book!!

As I missed the Brown Owls crochet night, I decided to have another stab at learning to crochet! My first attempts resembled mini beret's as they kept curling. Plus my fingers ached from not holding the cord correctly.

So, I thought I should probably read some proper instructions rather than just "winging it". This attempt was a miserable failure too (in hindsight, I blame the instructions I found on the Internet).

Then a miracle happened. I bought the wonderful Meet me at Mikes book (here) and within one hour of following Pip's easy directions, I made this little beauty, and even maned to change colours!!!!

The wool I used was some cheapy stuff from BigW but I love it because it changes colours every inch or so.

It is still better than any crochet I have ever tried!

I love the book! I'm aiming to make as much as possible from it once I finish my uni assignment next week :o)

i missed the crochet meet to but have the book so might see if Pips instructions work where Shirley failed me.
Pips instructions were good for knitting and I'm making progress on a scarf or tea cosy...
