There is a fact, I don't post much about Crochet here... Now, could it be because I have not done much crochet in... let's say a while?
As I was looking at my Crochet Album this morning, I realized that I had never posted about my first thread crochet experience. So, better late than never, here is the story:
April 2004, a Crochet Group Online I belong to had a CAL (Crochet Along), and as a very basic crocheter I thought I would never dare attempting something that looked so complicated... But I was convinced to give it a try so I decided to take up the challenge, and I certainly have never regretted I did, because I remember having some grand time all night long, from the first round to the end of the project. I was so amazed that I was actually able to make something that great looking, and so easily!
At sunrise, the doily was completed and a new fervent adept of Crochet d'Art (as it is called in French) was born!
I have learned a lot of new techniques and tips since I got to join BC, and I have also gained enough self-confidence to try new and sometimes challenging things. Without the Internet, I would probably still be a basic and frustrated crocheter...
The hot and sticky weather we are having these days makes me think about putting my needles down for a bit, and grab some thread cotton...
How about you? How do you cope with the heat?
KEEP COOL EVERYONE!
