#23 - learn to crochet

(bad blogger, bad! i uploaded these photos right away, but didn't add any text to go along with them!)

when i originally posted my list on flickr, erin offered to teach me how to crochet. so, a couple of sundays ago, we met up at birch coffee in the flatiron district and got to it.

my first partially completed, almost correct granny square pentagon. still, not too bad for my first try!

(isn't erin the cutest? i love her hair this length.)

here is erin's much more professional looking granny square. told you she's good. she was a great teacher, too. thanks again, erin! looking forward to our next crafternoon!

What a fun day!
I used to crochet in high school-but doubt I would remember how to do it. Look forward to seeing your progress :)

@abby: it was super fun! i've only tried again once since our lesson, with mixed results. mostly, i stopped because my dog kept wanting to eat the yarn!

this looks like so much fun. wish i could join in the lesson. :)
i think you did awesome jodi!

Erin said...

Oh I just saw this now! yay! We will definitely do this again. Gotta get you in the groove so you can keep going on your own :)

@kristin: when you come down, we'll have to have a crafternoon.
@erin: yes, please!!
