My February challenge!

And this might just turn into a year long challenge!

I want to learn to crochet.

I have tried and tried to crochet in the past, always getting frustrated and throwing in the towel.  I have been reassured on many occasions that it is easy! So why cant I do it!  I love the look of crochet beanies! 

So I am armed with a large download limit on my computer (for You tube), my sewing machines are going in for a service on Monday, so they cant distract me, and I will let You Tube teach me to crochet!

anyone else wanna try?

Have fun Carolyn. There seem to be a few people who struggle with crochet. Maybe it is being able to roll your tongue or brussel sprouts tasting bitter lol. ;)

I have the same trouble with knitting lol
Best resource I had for getting the hang of crochet, was Teach Yourself Visually Crocheting - I borrowed it from my library ( It shows each step in photos and words.

Best of luck :)
