I’m pretty new to crocheting and I have to admit I’m in love with it! I am the daughter of a serial knitter and was taught how to knit in my early teens, but it never really got my creative juices flowing.

I picked up a crochet hook a couple of months ago and I’m addicted.  I taught myself watching you tube videos. In my short time of crocheting I have already discovered there are some “do’s and do nots”

At first it can seem a little overwhelming but with help from crocheting groups and trial and error I’ve finally got the hang of it.
