I am going to start this post with pictures of my friend modelling the lovely Purple Beret & Mittens that I made for her
Don't they look FANTASTIC
I think they do and they really looked great on her too!
So Day 13 of the Granny A Day challenge started of with a text from a pupil that was due for a lesson at 10am
"Looking forward to meeting you today at 10 but don't be surprised if I turn out to be the first pupil you can't teach to crochet! W "
My reply to that text was
"Looking forward to meeting you too, I won't be surprised as I WILL be able to teach you to crochet"
And guess who's in the picture below?
Yes its WM crocheting away!
- Holding the wool correctly
- Holding the hook correctly
- Foundation Chain
- Slip stitch or single crochet
- double crochet &
- treble crochet!
She's also booked a 2 hour lesson in for next week too!
And I can't wait to see the progress that she will make, because I know that she will make some great Crochet things!
Now this picture was brought to my attention via Susgood on Twitter & like she Tweeted
"it puts the Granny A Day project into perspective"
The Telegraph says that they are patchwork quilts, but after searching online I found another picture that confirms that these are indeed crocheted Granny Square Blankets / Afghans
"7800 crochet blankets which were then donated to shelters"

Crochet Lesson #2 went very smoothly - an existing pupil from last year who couldn't crochet for toffee when she first arrived! She's only had 7 lessons and she's doing so well. So far she's made a few beanie hats, a Cafetiere cosy & a cowl for her Mum for Christmas to name a few things. She is confident enough now to begin to read patterns on her own (beginners level) so that's a fantastic improvement to the girl who couldn't even make a slip stitch!
Last but not least is my GAD (Granny A Day) No. 13
