I learnt to crochet last summer, and so far I've made the sweet pea shawl, 'lil monkey hat and have started the 'lil monkey afghan and fat bottomed bag, which I hope to finish soonish (I'm a new teacher, we have no time outside school stuff!!).
I have several problems. Firstly, SNBCTHH is american, and I am English and in England, so getting hold of the specified yarns is tricky, although some shipping fees seem reasonable. Secondly, because I am fairly new to the whole crafting game, I don't really know how to substitute yarns successfully, so I have been trying to get hold of the "correct" yarns. And some of those yarns are mega expensive!!
I really want to make my sister-in-law the bunny slippers for christmas, and make my mother-in-law frou frou for her birthday in August. And there are loads of other things I want to make but one step at a time!!
So anyway, if someone could give me some pointers on this, especially for the projects mentioned above I would be really really grateful. I've read through the posts and you are all doing amazing stuff! I love the froggy blanket!
thank you in advance!
