Week 19 - Learn to "Hook" at an early age!

Doesn't she look happy!!

She came to a crochet lesson with her Mum and decided that if it was good enough for us, it was good enough for her too!

In one of my lessons this week I taught how to "darn in as you go along"

This saves sewing in the ends when you have finished your crochet creation.

This lady bought my book & told me that reading it was like having me there with her at home! 
How nice is that *grins broadly*

Last week I gave one of my pupils a couple of balls of DMC Petra 

this week, she brought in these!

And these too

Aren't they just amazing.

Another pupil, who only came to beginners workshops last November, brought this in to class....

Isn't he just adorable?

She also "tarted up" her Hook Bag

Fantastic, as she also made these...

And another pupil is practicing Chevrons - she wants to make a baby blanket for her new Grandson arriving in July 

It's good to practice a new method in yarns from your stash before you commit to using the yarns or indeed wools in the colours you want to use.

And in that class we learnt how to crochet over a ring

In this case it was a curtain ring as that was all I had to hand

We decided that they will be mini photo frames

And that we were all going to practice some more with bracelets & embroidery hoops!

And finally.  I teach at Sparrow UK on Fridays & this is the 3rd week of 4 workshops in my Beginners Workshops

Today they learnt how to make a Granny Square

And after reading a pattern, pretty much un-aided, they did it!

They now have lots of homework to do in preparation for next weeks class!

I have taught 6 workshops this week and I have another to teach (private class of 3) tomorrow, so I haven't had a lot of time to crochet for myself, but I have added a few more triangle to my blanket so I will be going on FB later to update there.

Until next week x
