I've been watching the TV show "Knit and Crochet Today" on PBS's CreateTV (my new favorite channel.) It comes on right before one of the painting shows I like to watch. The more I watch the show the more I think I'd like to try crocheting again.
My grandmother tried to teach me now to crochet when I was young, but I always ended up making what looked like ping-pong ball covers. Obviously I was doing something wrong.
My sister-in-law knits instead of crochets but I knew she had inherited some crochet hooks from her momma. I asked her if I could borrow a hook and a bit of yarn to play with.
She sent me a backpack full of furry, heathery yarns (so soft!), a circular knitting needle, a crochet hook, and what looks like the start of a knitting project.
I'm not sure what I'll be able to do. I only vaguely remember what my Mammaw taught me but it's slowly coming back after watching the TV show.
Maybe I can manage a 6" square potholder or something.
We shall see.
