I made a promise to my English Nan that I would one day to learn to knit and crochet. Along with my daughter, we went to a knitting beginner class. We quite enjoyed it. But I discovered after awhile and many attempts at projects that my passion is crocheting.
When I was young, my Nan had taught me how to crochet by starting with the chain stitch. I would crochet so tightly I couldn't get past the chain portion to add rows.

After reading many books, watching videos online and hoping that from Heaven, Nan would guide my hands (I think this may be the answer after all) I have made only a few things.
My first an afghan (I aimed high) that was so misshapen that it would not fold into a nice square. But I still am proud of it.
After inspiration from Attic 24 I made this kitchen rug. I love bright colours so what better way than to infuse colours as in rows.
