Having been inspired by a new crochet magazine that has come out here in the UK, The Art of Crochet, together with Lucy at Attic 24 I have taken up crochet again. Not that I ever did much crochet before but I made a blanket years ago. I still have a long way to go before I am anywhere near Lucy's standard but I love the colours that she uses and the different designs. I bought this yarn at our local craft shop and got the pattern off a website...before I realised that Lucy has great tutorials on her blog. So in future I will be checking those out when I want to learn something new.
