{hooked}


I recently started to crochet. I love al those nice things made from grannies, so I decided to give it a try, again.....

When I was a child knitting and crochet were taught on school. I hated it, because I was no good at it. When I had to knit a scarf it would end up half the width, because I knitted tighter with ever row. It would get dirty as it had to be undone and knitted again. Crochet wasn't any better. I even forgot how to crochet. Thanks to You Tube I know now and I also know how to crochet a simple granny. 

 I intend to make enough grannies to make a small bag. That also means I have to get out my sewing machine to make the lining for the bag. Oh wew, I hope that goes well LOL.



I will show you the end result. 

A hint for you.....If the end result doesn't show up here, there is no end result.

BTW the Dutch word for "to crochet" is "haken" Haak is also the Dutch word for hook, haken is done with a needle with a hook. Hence the word (and the tittle of this post).

Are you still there....?

Bye,

  4. söta Marianne!!
    så glad jag blev för din kommentar!
    Och så trevligt det låter med en liten minisemester i Tyskland.
    Hope you had a great time!
    how lovely it was to hear that you had a poodle!
    somethng that i noticed since we got Milton is that it seems to be something special with poodles. I have often been aproached by pepole who had or have poodles and it seems as if the dogbreed makes a certain mark in peoples hearts. We never notices that when we had other dogbreeds in my childhood/teens. Neither did my parents. :)
    hope everything is good with you and your loved ones!
