Kate has asked me to let you all know a bit about what we’ve been up to on Wednesday nights at Benedict House. So first I’ll put it briefly – it’s been a jolly hive of creativity and learning! Now read on if you want to know more.
I have been teaching a small group of ladies to crochet all sorts of goodies. We started with the classic (but very important!) Granny Square. It was the first crochet pattern I was taught four years ago when a good friend showed me how. My eager students picked it up easily, just as I had.
We went on to learn flowers, covered wooden bangles and wrist warmers which the ladies also picked up quickly. There are three main stitches to learn in crochet and once you’ve mastered them you can easily do hundreds of different patterns. After our four weeks ended the class was so keen to keep learning that we have been meeting every Wednesday since and attempting more patterns.
Last week we did this basic V-Stitch scarf that is very quick to learn and super snuggly for Canberra winters.
I will be beginning a new 4 week course from the 2nd through to 23rd May and would love to introduce more people to this super fun, totes cool and very awesome craft! Join me in the ‘crafting revolution’. The course is tailored for beginners but I am happy to take students of all levels. Maybe you learnt at school, or from your Nan and now you just need to brush up? Or you want to know how to read a pattern? Come and join me.
