In the last few weeks I've picked up a crochet hook again. It's been a while, a couple of years in fact since my last crochet project. So long that I've had to relearn the basic stitches and find myself fumbling through the motions once more. Perhaps not quite a beginner - there is some memory left in my muscles but not a lot!
I'm attempting to make the merfolk bag from Relish, issue 34 of Taproot magazine. The pattern uses a size 4 hook and a gorgeous organic linen from Quince & Co which i bought with some birthday money I received last year. It's been sitting in the craft cupboard waiting for me to find someone to help me read the pattern or find the time to figure it out myself.
Luckily I now find myself with plenty of time on my hands again. Lockdown has been very good for all the craft projects I've piled up over the years!
One of the things I love the most about crochet is how easy it is to un-do. When you make a mistake the stitches unravel with ease and you can start all over again. Which is a very good thing because I have been making a lot of mistakes!
What are you relearning or finding the time to do?
