What a wet Easter Day. I have Will home using my craft room as a bedroom so cant go there. So spent a very pleasant afternoon crocheting with Val. She is intermediate/advanced stage making flowers and experimenting and I am very much at the beginners 'how do you do a granny square?' stage. However after many false starts and much perseverance I have made progress. I am beginning to recognise what the rounds should look like but feel a long way from flowers and lace- plus the tips of my fingers have gone numb. Give me knitting any day!

Had great trouble getting the first chain and round.

Beginning to look like it should. The blue wool kept splitting though.

Not perfect but recognisable. Phew.
