I knit and have actually had a few lessons in crochet.
I would like to learn as it looks fascinating however I do not know what I would make if I could crochet, so I will probably not learn to do it.

I have two crochet hooks and I can do a single chain. Tragic. I would love to learn and I actually picked up and perused a dvd on it just two days ago . . . I may yet go back and buy it but, like Finy, I don't know what on earth i would make. LOL. I am just as talented at knitting . . . I can do many wonderful stitches that my mother taught me but I can't read a pattern. Old dogs: new tricks. Who knows . . ? Hahaha.
by Rice
oh I can knit AND read patterns! I have a garage full of llama, lovely soft wool to spin and half a garage already spun waiting to knit things with.
Yes, I can do single chain in crochet also!

Oh, you two cheeky things!!!!! Do not forget that Doctor Who is on this evening(Sunday)!!!!

Rice, do you remember those lovely cotton cream coloured crocheted jug covers with the little coloured beads, mostly of the same colour? While we were visiting Melbourne last month, I saw some in an op shop, but they were't old ones, & they were $8's each! There were 6 or 7 with reddy-orange beads, & 1 with green beads. My 'vintage' (not in age!) daughter has an older 1, but never uses it. It just sits over something, up the end of the kitchen bench.

Oh, I do! My friend gave me one that her mother had crocheted. I don't use it either, but I love having it.
by Rice
No. No
My mother taught me years ago, as something to do over the school holidays. I haven't done any crochet since then. I'm not really interested in knitting or crochet, or anything crafty for that matter. I prefer to enjoy other peoples creative skills, at galleries or markets and admire them, and be truly amazed by their talent.
I love to crochet. I'm currently working on a blanket for my son's queen size bed ... I find crochet to be a lovely quiet way to get in touch with my inner self...
I was knitting a queen blanket, and need someone to do an edge of crochet round it hence I asked the question - I have been knitting this BeauTIFUL rose petal blanket for about 4 years now! Now I am stuck for a crochet edge
by Finy
For the lack of an edge, a blanket was halted ... I hope you can find someone to help you to finish your blanket - there are lots of crafty people out there!

We used to crochet in school. I have no memory of how to do it now. I made a cushion cover in school
by AJ
I did it when I was a teenager, loved it.

I am now more into sewing my hearts.
But it is such a fun thing to Crochet, and keep's our fingers nimble :) plus you can make a lot of cool things, when you start.
can do chain stitch, my grandmother did crotchet
I have many beautiful things that she made, sadly we hardly use this type of thing nowadays.
she was able to crotchet figures and animals etc into her very finely crotched work
I can crochet but unable to knit apart from a scarf,

I have tried to teach myself on a number of occasions.... I just can not get the tension right.. youtube videos only help so much!


I actually tried to crochet when I was in school, I didn't mind it, but nothing came of it.
I can both knit AND crochet!!! I learned these skills many years ago and used to make all sorts of lovely things!! My poor fingers are so pain-filled now though, that I do not do either. So sad!
no. i might take it up to occupy my hands when i stop smoking

Good Luck with that 1 Simon/e. You could save yourself a LOT of money, by not smoking, & spend it on useful things! Perhaps you have stopped my now. I hadn't seen this question before, (which of cause has nothing to do with smoking,) so I don't know when it was 1st written.)
by Miro
That is a really great idea. Good luck :-))
by Rice
It's now 1/2 way through 2017. Have you managed to STOP smoking now, Simon? My husband went 'cold turkey' but that certainly wouldn't suit everyone!
by Miro
No and yes. My grandmother tried to teach me when I was little. I wish I had tried to learn better. I did make something, but I have totally forgotten how to do it.
by Vee
I sew but crochet or knitting I can not do.
Yes self taught....
No, I can't crochet. I only learnt to knit in my teens, & then I stopped doing it. Only made a few jumpers. Wool in shops seems to be very scarce, as it's all acrylic these days, even though the shops sign will say: 'These balls of WOOL are such'n such a price'
by Miro
I wonder if little kids will grow up thinking we have acrylic sheep. heehee.
by Rice
My Grandmother taught me to crochet one school holidays when an ear infection kept me from going to the beach with my family.
I crocheted a mop hat as a teen, a few rugs and decorative edges on hand towels since. I enjoy crochet and find my hands work automatically while another part of my brain is somewhere else.
I don't have a lot of use for crocheted items or I might do more.
