I wasn't too bothered in the first week but by week 2 I needed to do something. As you know I am a crochet beginner so I concentrated on making Granny Squares. Want to see what I came up with? I didn't manage too much as I couldn't remember how to do it without using the Internet, and I couldn't see the screen clearly in the sunshine and I was determined to enjoy the sunshine this year.
Basic Granny Square - I can do these once I remind myself about the number of stitches needed. I do love how these change depending on what colour you do. I also made one in blue and white which I love (and used as a coaster).
A Closed Granny Square. I love the look of this one, but I have to REALLY concentrate to make it and it's not perfect. I hope to make many of these and make a blanket. I'll worry about joining them when I feel I have mastered them!!!
I am not happy with the one below. It is meant to be a circle in a square. I think it is ok until the blue, then it doesn't look like a square. I think I misread the pattern and didn't do the corners well enough. Another one which needs lots of practise.
All in all I doubt I'll buy the magazine again. The hook wasn't brilliant and had sharp bits on it which the wool kept catching on. I also wasn't keen on the wool - I LOVE the blue though. So on future holidays I think I will take my regular hooks and choose a couple of balls of wool to pack.
