For today's Handmade Thursday over at White Lily Green I thought I'd show you some of my crochet. I learnt to crochet when I was eleven and was taught by a lovely ex partner of my Dad's. Her name was Wendy and I loved her because she really liked me and my brothers and she encouraged Dad to have a relationship with us (unlike his current wife). I know that it must have taken her a hell of a lot of patience to teach an eleven year old child to work the hook and wool. Its a craft I adore and will always remember Wendy for teaching me such a lovely skill.
So in the photo above is me wearing one of my handmade ripple scarf's in different shades of grey and the box below is full of the same scarves that I crocheted for our nieces a couple of Christmases ago.
I crocheted the boys hats...including one for my Brother Mr T who rarely takes it off, bless him he loves it even though its old and worn now.
So pop over to Lily White Green's for some more homemade goodies.
