Crochet!

I've finally got the hang of crochet by following the amazing pattern of Lucy from Attic 24. I absolutely love it. It's made of Debbie Bliss DK Cotton and it came together really quickly. I'm totally addicted now and have plans for a bedspread...



I also made a teddy, hereafter known as wonky teddy, cause he is just a tad. He's tiny and just sits in a hand. Made from a pattern here.
If you're into crochet or knitting try www.ravelry.com for loads of patterns and a great fibre community!

Gorgeous bag Rhi. I'd love to try crotcheting. My Mum's really good at it and used to crochet herself dresses when she was younger, she could never get the hang of teachiner her lefty daughter though. Will have a look Lucy's pattern.

Button necklace in your earlier post is lovely too - I've never tried one of these. Funnily enough I went a bit mad over the weekend and bought stuff for making polymer clay beads.

Hope we can manage to catch up in person soon.

Oh my, you did it! and they are beautiful especially the teddy bear. Lately, I bought some crochet and knitting books but the problem is I never try it before. So I need to know the basic of knitting first. I love your crochet finished product.

Hi Rhi

Ok - so I am a little behind the times and not wandered around blogs for a very long long time - I love this little bear.

I got back into crochet last winter and would like to have a go at some more - but not sure what to do.
