My Dabble into Crochet

For a few months I didnt have a working sewing machine and it was killing me.

All my sewing machines decided to go  on holiday to the repairers forever and I just had loads and loads of sketches and projects and no machine to do them with. It felt like my creativity was dying within me! so what did this Esterist do?

I decided to dabble into crochet - firstly I ordered 12 crochet hooks across sizes



Then I visited John Lewis and spent hours pawing and caressing knitting/crochet yarns before deciding to buy the most amazing yarn - I bought four packs of this
Then I progressed to learn how to crochet! online - I read notes and watched videos - I do previously know how to make a crochet chain so I was building on that.

And then my projects started.

I made this beautiful bed shoes






Then I started on this baby dress (yeah someone is getting broody!!!)



and the finished work looks like this



Then I made a headband for Miss Bionic, my friend's amazing daughter


A scarf for myself, everytime I wear it I feel so fly- and also a cap for my friend's uber cute son!

I'm running out of that amazing yarn - which is all well and good ....So many things have been made from it already!  next stop will be a single colour not so bright yarn...

Okay so that is my dabble into crochet so far - I dont think I'm stopping though!
