    Default Does anyone crochet?

    I recently started crocheting to help me quit smoking (it worked, I've been smoke free for over a month!) My friend taught me basics and I learned the rest from youtube and pinterest. Its so relaxing and gives me such a sense of accomplishment.

    I thought it would be nice to have a place to share our work and talk about all things crocheting!!!

    Yes I do. Baby dress and blankets are probably what I make most but I have made bags, toys etc

    I've recently restarted and so am starting from basics. I stole an idea from a friend of mine that I'm currently working on.
    It's basically a big grammy blanket backed with that fluffy-but-not-mink material stuff as wool makes me itch SO much.

    Also, @LoveLivesHere OMG SHE WAS SO SQUISHY!!!

    @BeautyOfTheSoul they are amazing!!! And @LoveLivesHere so beautiful. Would love to see some pics @Jennaisme that sounds really cool.

    I get bored easily so prefer small projects but I'm currently working on a throw blanket. I'm trying to just make my work neater because to me it still looks a bit messy.

    So far I have mastered single crochet, double crochet and half double crochet stitch.

    That baby dress is just double crochet and chain. You could easily do it.

    Lovely work all

    I do but haven't done anything for some time. The last thing I did was a butterfly and daisies which I turned into the neckline and back of a dress. I'll find some photos.

    The butterfly is a really old doily pattern I found on the net and the daisies are adapted from a Ravelry pattern.
