Crochet at Craft Bee

Today E, with A as the support act, went to Craft Bee in Beckenham to learn crocheting. Ever since E discovered Lucy's blog at Attic 24 she has wanted to make Granny Squares so today we got a last-minute place on a Satruday workshop. We've been to Craft Bees before - Tilly, Es new blue machine had her debut here with the tote bag creation, and we also Lino printed last year...
So A relaxed whilst E and 6 ladies under the tuition of Clare talked of trebles and slip stitches, loops and foundation rows, and chains and holes.... The sun came through the window and clouds scudded across with the rumble of the traffic on the High street. Many peculiar shaped 'rectangles' and some rather fine Granny Squares  and flowers were made! 


Learning to hold the yarn, very different to knitting!


Dodgy grey squares...




Much better! A granny square emerges! (And nicer colours too...)


Everyone's finished creations!
