Well, here is a first step to sharing a bit of my life on the ole information superhighway.
I learnt to crochet from various youtube videos over a year ago, but mostly from Mikeyssmail tutorials. they are superb and I still re-visit them regularly.
I have wanted to make blankets for years ever since seeing one my mum and nan knitted from parches. I asked for one from my mum in 2000 when I left to go to uni and she was very keen. It's now 2014 and she has made 7 squares......
So for a joke I taught myself to crochet to make one square to add to it. Now, well, I have made a lot of squares put it that way.
I have made a few baby blankets for friends, a range of large patchwork blankets for adults and I'm quite content doing so. I am keen to try my hand at granny squares however.
I'm in every way a beginner but keen to try.
Oh, and I'm male :p With a very loving boyfriend and stepdaughter.
