I'm a hooker

It's official I have another obsession. After years of wanting to learn the lovely Sue taught me my first crochet stitches last week. This is my progress so far.Looking through some crochet books and stuff on the web, I can't believe how much variety can be gotten from just one little hook and some yarn.

It's probably another thing learned that I probably won't have the time to do justice with. I think I'm destined to spend my life being a jack of all trades type person, but hey that's ok with me. I would like to make 16 of these little squares and make them up into a cushion cover so I'm going to add this to my to do list for May.

So it's official..... I'm a hooker..... Sue if your reading I guess technically that makes you a Madam ;)

Jack of all trades eh Angela--wait until you are my age and then imagine how many things you will have tried and still there are more to learn.
Love the squares.

They're lovely. Congrats on your new trade. Nothing wrong with a jack of many, you'll be in good company. :D

You can't beat having a whole host of crafts under your belt. Crochet is seriously addictive and with the one or two stitches you've learn - slip stitch, DC, treble, you're sorted, you can do them all!

Im really impressed. I've had a go at crochet but I'm really ham fisted. Seeing your your squares makes me want to have another go!!
