Crochet for Beginners

Yesterday I spent a happy three hours here at a Crochet for Beginners class. I had heard many lovely things about this shop, but it was actually my first visit (but definitely not my last!).
Myself, my friend Marion and three others learn't the basics of crochet with Sarah. I can't show you anything I did because it was all just practice and I've unravelled it. However, I think after five or more years of trying I've finally got it!!
The shop is beautiful, truly inspirational and the owner, Caroline is happy for me to share with you some pictures I took.
The next images were taken through the window so please excuse the reflections!
I want to make a knitted tea cosy like this and...
a knitted hanging basket - I'm in love !
Take a look at the website for more inspiration.
I'm off to practice!

Thanks for visiting, I hope you all had a great weekend.


  1. Congrats on picking up the crochet basics. I started teaching myself at Christmas and am hooked. It grows so quick the one thing I hate about knitting it seems to take ages to see any progress. Thanks for the great photos of the shop it looks fab. Have a lovely week.

  3. Hi Suzanne
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. I thought I would drop in to your little world - hope you dont mind.
    How fabulous does this shop look. The knitted hanging basket of tumbling strawberries is amazing! Some people are so clever.
    I was so pleased to see on your pictures that you have a Cavvy - I too had a beautiful Cavalier called Harriet -Hattie for short. She was the sweetest little soul and I miss her a lot. Just lately I have been thinking maybe its time to get another one. Perhaps a tri colour this time. Hattie was a Blenheim and just beautiful.
    Well say hi to Timmy, Muzzy and Jessica for me. As you will see from my blog I am a ridiculous animal lover - they bring such joy to our lives dont they?
    Great blog and I'll be following you now too.

  4. Love that hanging basket - I'm expecting to see your version at the next M&M!
