I finished making the hearts in all the colours that I had available in StyleCraft Special DK, so 17 hearts in all. Now I have to decide what to do with them!
The next excitement of the day was a group of 2 Crochet Class.
Last week I taught L how to make a granny square
this was what she brought in for me today!
She has worked REALLY hard so her practice HAS made PERFECT
Today I taught her how to change colours in a Granny Square
Hasn't she done marvellously well?
Now this is from my other lady who had a problem starting several squares from the Jan Eaton 200 Crochet Blocks Book (see the Amazon poster in the top right if you want to order this fantastic book - my favourite!!)
She did ever so well & with a little help she has conquered her "understanding that pattern" block that she seemed to have had since I saw her at her last lesson.
I cheated today with GAD No. 31 as I made this in class as I was helping L to colour change.
I have also started another project or WIP
I rarely make clothes but I really like this pattern. I will probably make it longer in the body (it starts at the yoke) so that it will be more of a beach cover over thingy topy thing (sorry) and I am using Cotton Tape by Rowan rather than the suggested DK cotton yarn but the Tension Gauge came up ok so I should be ok.
Well thank you January 2012 you've been eventful and I am so pleased that GAD 2012 has been so popular so far!
