Ha ha ha - you've convinced me NOT
to bother - phew!
If you need any help with learning to crochet, then I'm here for you too.
I've just finished knitting a large baby shawl in fine 2 ply baby yarn, with crochet edging (for speed, as the baby decided to be born before I'd finished the very lacy knitted edging). To see one I've already finished please visit the crafts pages on my website.
My next project: making some Xmas gifts for animals in need. I guess the charities will be raffling them, so if anyone is interested, please let me know. (Please bear in mind I'm in England).
