Square samples and Chat City

Today was the last session of a Sensational Crocheted Squares class, and here’s a fabulous example of what we do:

Hobbycraft in Preston kindly hosted the class, which is somewhat tempting… mmm, yarn. Over 3 weeks we’ve covered basic stitches (UK and US), getting started, tension, changing colour, reading patterns, choosing yarn and more.

I’ve bought lots of different ‘How to Crochet’ type things, over the years… what I actually needed was proper tuition!

Later this afternoon I visited Preston FM to talk to Gary about knitting, our classes at the Intact Centre, and just generally chat. Because I knew what to expect, I was a bit more relaxed this time, and didn’t talk about toilet roll covers, but I don’t think a knitting show is on the cards.
