The first day of October, and the first day of Blogtoberfest 2014!
So what is Blogtoberfest I hear you ask, well there is a link opposite that will take you to the host blog, Shells in the bush. Basically we are a group of bloggers who will try to blog daily for the whole of October, Blogtoberfest is a blog hop. I did manage it last year and found it a little challenging, but rewarding too.
I have also decided to challenge myself this month by learning to crochet the proper way, I’ll keep you posted on my progress, and how many granny squares I have made by the end of the month. I’m left handed and basically crochet like knitting, but I want to learn to hold the yarn the properly. I’ve always been interested in textiles, I grew up surrounded by sewing, knitting, and crochet and I used to work in textiles, but doing crochet the proper way has always eluded me, and I don’t like to let something get the better of me so I’m determined to crack it this time.
My yarn has just arrived, and I’ve found a pattern online, (more later) but now my biggest challenge is, should I work left handed or right handed, I am left handed, but ambidextrous as most left handers are, you learn to adapt in a right handed world.
More later, I’m heading off to the studio now. If you are a fellow ‘Blogtoberfester’, leave me a comment and a link to your blog and I’ll head over and say hi!I’m looking forward to reading lots of blogs with my coffee each day.
Why not have a blog hop around the other Blogtoberfest participants
