Learning to Crochet

Just popping in to say hi after a few days of absence :0).

My boys (the big ones and the little ones) took me to Sydney for a Mother's Day weekend.  We had a fantastic time showing the boys everything from the trains and ferries (very important for a 2 year old boy), to the Sydney Aquarium, Dinosaur Museum and the awesome Harbour Bridge (for the almost-7 year old).

A highlight for me, was my WH giving me Saturday morning to myself to join a Learn to Crochet class through the Craft Room, run by Notebook Magazine.  After wanting to learn crochet for a number of years, I grabbed at this special opportunity and now I can say, I can crochet!!

That's me in the yellow top studiously taking notes on how to try some new stitches.  You can see my little granny square sitting on top of the brown ball of wall.  I'm so impressed I did it.  Corrie our wonderful teacher is in the middle showing us the next step!

These are the colours I got to play with in my crochet kit.  They were so soft and went together absolutely beautifully.

This is certainly not my granny square, it was a demo piece shown by Corrie.  But it's the colour combo I plan on using if we have a little girl!  We find out this Friday!

For more info, visit the Craft Room at the Notebook Magazine (click on this link).  I so hope they come to Canberra to do some classes here!
