....all i can think of is hold the hook like a pencil and go for some lovley chunky wool and big hook so that you can see what your doing and it grows REALLY quickly (unpicks quickly and recrochets again quickly!). I've only just worked out how to wrap the yarn around my left hand to get the tension properly - make sure you have plenty unwound wool. I think some of the others have posted the email address for tutorials. Start simple and work up.

I can't knit however hard i try, i just doesn't make sense, but crochet I'm away with...i've only been crocheting for 4mths but i've made all sorts including slippers!

Good Luck, keep persevering, it is worth it!

thant is just so cute, i'm about the third of the way thru Rowans granny squasre poncho, i would post a picci but hubby turned the camera into a web cam and I don't know how to change it back!

I'm going to run out of blue wool, oh well what a good excuse to get out of town to where there's a fab fabric and wool shop.

hiya,

i go in three weeks, i cant wait as my parents moved there last year. I'm going to put my metal hooks in the suit case, i can't really see a plastic 5mm or above being seen as an offensive weapon! I've have found the most amazing yarn shop near where i live and i am already planning a trip on my own to go choose some yarn to take  Grin. I'd try phoneing the airline just to double check tho.

have fun in europe

hiya,

the book looks beautiful and the yarn you have chosen is fab. I've gone with a simple daisy pattern granny square, with the flower in dusky pink and the boarder in baby blue, in Rowan yarn made from merino wool and cotton, it is absolutley lush! I'm winging it and I reakon i need approx 45 squares (no where near as many as you)! I've made about half of the flowers and done the boarder on 5. I'm trying to get it finished before i go on my holiday to Spain (i want to take another project wth me, this time to make something for me!)

Thanks for the tip

...i'm a bit of a lurker and a newbie.

i've just discovered granny squares and they are so cool how they turn into squares! i'm looking for a simple flower motif to make a poncho for my daughter for spring summer..... i want to make it in dk (i think thats worsted) (we call everything by diffrent names in the uk down to the stiches...how confusing)

You guys seems to have the best ideas and patterns, you are definatley keeping my yarn shop in buisness and me busy. When i'm brave enough I'll post some piccis

cheers

count me in, my first project was a poncho. I only crochet it twice. It was for my wee girl, first time it fitted my 6ft hubby (but pink isn't his colour!)

I like caplet, i'm tepted to just give it ago anyway

hiya,

i'm new to this forum and new to crocheting. I just googled crochet for techniques and looked for beginers pattens. Fuzzy galore has an excellent really easy scarf, i think I'm on number 4 since december and i seem to have aquired a wool addiction for hand dyed yarn!

Good luck
