Hooked

To think, I had nearly given up on crochet and now I can't stop. I couldn't quite decide what to do with my new granny square skill but then Bec suggested I try making a hat for the baby. And now I'm hooked. Bec, when I need to start attending Crochet Addicts Anon, I'm blaming you!

At the last Brisbane Brown Owls meeting, the lovely Sandra once again was my personal crochet guide and helped me navigate my way around the new language that is a crochet pattern.

The first two I made were from this pattern. Funnily enough, they were using the same ply bamboo-cotton blend and made the same way, but the sizes turned out quite different. I think it was a change in tension. I've now started a third, a larger one, using this pattern.

Mmm... now I just need to get up the courage to try some booties to match....
