As I sat unpicking yet another project last night and feeling sort of blah about it, I stopped and gave myself a proper talking to.
After all I'm still a newbie at this crochet lark, I've only been doing it for two years!
So I thought I'd cheer myself up and look at some of my 'early work'!
Thought you might like to have a peek too.
December 2009, some wobbly grannies!
By March 2010 a non wobbly granny and some flowers.
I like making flowers, no wrong.
But then I got adventurous and after mooching around Flickr I found the gorgeous Babette blanket.
Had to make that!
May till June I toiled away on those gorgeous squares.
it I was
I was a crocheter
I'd made something
to make one!
My hook was on fire now!
So now I'm a crochet freak spending hours with hook in hand.
And in the two years since I discovered the pure enjoyment of hooking I've made many, many lovely things
Here's a little round up of some of the other lovelies I've made.
So I guess a little bit of unpicking is not the end of the world is it.
I'm making progress improving my skills and constantly learning. It's mainly due to all you lovely folk, who post such inspiring beautiful things, often with fantastic tutorials and patterns, I just have to have a go!
I'm surprised and delighted at how much I've improved over that time, I'm looking forward to trying more complex projects!
Anyway back to the unpicked project, it's already reincarnating.
But I think I shall keep it a surprise.
