Learning to Crochet

clare barton

A couple of weeks ago I went for a crochet lesson with my Aunt to Toft Farm in Warwickshire.  My Aunt is very into her crafts, she can knit, sew, and makes the most amazing cards, so I was a bit worried that she would pick it up really quickly and I would be sat there asking for help every 5 minutes.  Well the bit about me asking for help was realised, but I wasn't the only one.

Toft farm is set in beautiful Warwickshire countryside, where they keep alpacas and then use their wool in the kits they sell, and the shop they run.  The morning course we did was well run, and a real giggle,  They have a lovely coffee shop on site and amazing cakes, so literally everything you want for a morning out.  I knew it was going to be fun when the first thing I was greeted by was a giant crocheted flamingo!

So the thing is, im now just a bit addicted, i'm still very much a beginner, and I am still crocheting with my tongue stuck out of the side of my mouth, but who knew it could be so much fun.  I mean who needs to do their accounts, get the new stock ordered and customer orders ready, when you can complete another granny square!!
