I went to the pdswife school of crochet :) I can do a blanket, just, but nothing else really. I would like to learn to do it properly, I fancy some nice lacy shawls and jackets that are so fashionable at the moment. Since losing weight I have become a fashion queen!

I used to crochet long, floor length sleeveless 'coats' in the very early 70s... think 60s flowerpower... I thought I was the bees' knees!

My mum and my aunty used to crochet Barbie outfits in the 70s for my cousins and I. One camping holiday they made us a Barbie outfit per night!!

I crocheted a bed spread years ago...took me 10 years..LOL..Itr was 4" squares..done in the popcorn stitch..when two were put togather they formed a diamond of the popcorn stiches..each one took 2 or 3 hours to make, I have about 1000 houres in it but have never used it. It's too danged heavy! Weighs about 20 pounds or so.

I have been making kitchen scrubbies out of 1/2 yard nylon net cut into 21/2 " strips. Gave them as gifts (freebies) to friends. I've made about 30 of them.

Now I wear a wrist and thumb brace on my left hand...when it feels better I'll be back at it again.(dummy that I am)

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Walk towards the Sunshine and the Shadows will fall behind you!
