A Couple of weeks ago I went on a long awaited crochet flower evening at my local wool shop.
Although I have taught myself to crochet, I really did want to have a lesson as I learn a lot better by watching someone else do it. I have to say that Vanessa from Coco Rose Diaries who is an amazing crocheter has truly inspired me.
I had a great evening, it was just after Pickle had gone into the animal hospital & I really needed a bit of me time.I managed to get booked on the course a couple of months ago, so Gav said I really must go and enjoy myself for an evening.
It was great fun, the wool bar is a tiny little shop run by a lovely lady called Caroline, with a big pine table taking up most of the space. I have often walked past and seen gaggles of ladies drinking coffee and knitting in there.
The course was run by a lovely lady who used to be a school art teacher, she was very good.
We were given a pattern of the flower we were to make. A whole rainbow of beautiful yarn had been laid out on the table, we were told to chose our first colour. I chose a deep purple. We then went through the stitch code, which was great as I always forget what they mean!
I took photos of my flower in progress so instead of me explaining what we did here you are.

We also got to make a free style flower, starting with a magic ring!
I am now feeling a lot more confident about my crochet, & I'm finding reading the patterns a lot easier too.
Here are a few photos of the Beautiful Wool Bar, if your ever in Worthing do pop along for a visit.
Have a wonderful week.
