Learn to Crochet: Week Two in the big Granny Square house...
So after the giddiness and down-right naughtiness of the previous week, the ladies of Balsham met again and wielded their hooks. And you know what, the swearing diminished. Everyone managed more than they had the week before -and newbie superstar Kate picked it up like she'd done in in a past life.
I think this blanket is growing....
Things I've learned about passing on a craft skill:
1. Use light or bright colours -mums meet in the dark hours when the kids are asleep, or in January light. Dark blues are out, you just can't see them.
2. Sometimes just launching in is more effective than the baby steps, and keeps you motivated when there is quick success.
3. Swearing (in any language) is probably just going to have to be acceptable;
4. When you have a good reason to learn, no one gives in.
