I thought I would post a photo to show you some things I’ve been working on to prepare for my new March classes. Once equipped with a few “basic” skills, you can begin to make a variety of projects, big and small, limited only by your imagination! Here are a couple of simple items I made in an afternoon after crocheting a few small squares (and a couple of rectangles) from the new “Crochet Basics” class, using only one or two simple stitches:
In addition to the cotton yarn, the only other supplies were a zipper for the accessories bag and some filling for the sachets. Both are fun and quick projects to enjoy for yourself or to give as gifts. More importantly, projects like these help build your skills and confidence so you can take on the projects you’ve been wanting to make. The stitches and techniques you learn in the “Crochet Basics” and “Knitting Basics” classes easily translate to any type of project, such as a baby blanket or throw, simply by adjusting your stitch count and selecting a different yarn.

Have a great week!
