Knitting is my true love. Obviously.
But, when I was in South Africa I lived, for a brief few months, with a delightful family, the Gertzens. The Gertzen ladies were crocheters, and Margie (Mrs Gertzen) was kind enough to introduce me to the world of crochet by teaching me how to make a ‘Granny Square’.
My first crochet project was a Granny Square blanket as a wedding gift for Fiona and Rasmus (a blanket which I apparently didn’t take a picture of – sadness). My second project was two pairs of crocheted slippers, as Christmas presents for my dear sisters. And since then, I’ve drifted away from crochet altogether.
However, I’m back again, since I decided (after seeing one in a film recently) that I would like a Granny Square blanket of my own.
It’s going to be a long-time-coming project I think – blankets usually are – but I’m looking forward to the finished product.
In summary: crochet.
