I have wanted to learn to crochet for a while. Having looked at various books and online I decided the only way I was going get started was to be taught by a real person. So along with a friend, I attended a beginners crochet workshop run by Sarah from Made and Making. It was a great introduction. Sarah ran through the basic techniques and helped us to start a granny square which we took home and I have now finished!
My technique is slowly improving but the tension is still all over the place!
