I spent most of yesterday over at Purl's Palace in Daylesford, helping three absolutely delightful ladies tackle the intricacies of my Beginner's crochet class.
The project - as last time - was the Lyndham Scarf [free pattern over there in the side bar ] and together we braved the mysteries of English versus American notation of the basic stitches.
Admittedly Cherry - seen her looking quite pleased with herself, as well she should -did have some prior crochet experience so I can't take credit for the speed with which she was churning out her sample and then her scarf
Tracey seemed to be happily on her way to crochet mastery by the end of the session, as was Peg [ alas sadly unpictured ]
There had been two other ladies booked in [ and a question mark over another ] but they had to cancel on Monday which was a bit disappointing for Zoe and Andy, although it meant that I could give more attention to my lovely trio.
and a good time was had by all!
Now with no attempt whatsoever at a neat segue:
It has been brought to my attention through the forceful application of several pairs of claws to the soft and tender portions of my anatomy,that certain members of the menagerie Chez Catsmum are somewhat unhappy with the dawg-centric nature of recent posts. Even the attempted bribe with Friskies treats was treated with disdain ... which is to say, the feline rulers of the house did deign to consume said treats but it was on the understanding that they were neither appeased nor amused,
I henceforth promise a more fair and balanced reportage
" Well, just see that you do, Mum"
