I can't tell you how lucky I am as a Crochet Teacher
to come across such talent in one County - Dorset!
Just look at the finish on this baby cardigan - toggle buttons & a fab colour mix!
Another pupil saw a pot cover I made last week (you can just see it top left of the photo) & she went away & made this...
After a lesson in Flower making last week - AR brought her own in this week, complete with a cover pot too
I love them!
And PG worked really hard at pattern reading & made these lovely flowers
I love the pansy
We talked "drape" over the last couple of lessons & V brought in her finished scarf & the start of a shawl
The next few photo's are taken in my Crochet Classroom at home....
Another lesson in following patterns
Which seems to be the "hook" in the side of many crochet -ers
It's a matter of reading what's there in front of you and reading it again and possibly again before it goes "bing"
And it worked as here we have 2 covered stones, ready for al fresco dining this Summer
I did a similar project at my Shaftesbury lessons, but this time with Jam Pot Covers
They were not allowed to compare notes or cheat!! It was very "exam like" for some moments as they all concentrated on the task in hand and the room went quiet!
And as you can see, progress was made and end result
And here are the Sparrow UK "hookers" with their subscription forms ready to be completed and sent to Inside Crochet Magazine.
In the latest issue, which is in the shops (Issue 53) not only has one of my patterns....
but also my "interview" which DMC creative world said....

Do you think someone is "hooked" on Granny Squares with her collection of books?
These Crochet Queen charms are selling well (see my "Crochet Shop" tab above)
