Oh no even my nails are getting in on the act now :) Love these little pirate ships that I got off ebay for £1.50. They were a little fiddly to do, but think I will get better as I do more. Got myself 3 different designs including some music notes, which I will surprise my music teacher with after the pirate festival is over.
Although I have knitting since I was very young, and also used knitting machines for years. I still wanted to learn to crochet. But give me a knitting pattern and I am away. Give me crochet pattern and I am lost. So I decided that a look through the great tutorials on youtube would help me out. Of course me being me I did not do exactly as they showed, and these are my own interpretation of a couple I watched. Not that they are perfect, I need a lot more practice. However I am happy with what I have produced so far. :)
