YAY FOR THE DOWNLOADED PHOTOS!!!!
Can you hear me cheering. This is my crochet project. Actually it's not quite completed, but I am well on the way.
These photos are a little blurry, but I think you get the idea. I've never actually followed a crochet pattern before, so this is my very first attempt. I have made granny squares, taught by my grandmother, but as for following a pattern this is my first effort. I had to work it out all by myself and now that I have I feel very clever. I don't actually know how good my crocheting is purely because I have nothing to compare it to, but I'm pretty happy with the job I've done.
The end result is going to be a shawl. You had to make 108 of the rounds then join the rounds together in a row of 6. You then join the rows of 6 together.
I have about 8 more rounds to do and then I start joining all the rounds together. I started out by crocheting 6 of the rounds and was joining them together as I went but that seemed a lot more long winded. I thought it easier to do all the rounds first join them together.
It's taken me a while to get to this point, but I have really enjoyed this project. It has made me realise that I can crochet and teach myself to follow a pattern to boot. My grandmother would be proud of me, and just quietly I wish she was here to see it.
Will post a picture when I have the finished product.
