Such Joy

I have to blog my feelings of such utter joy. I have had a venture up my sleeve for a while now, I have wanted to teach crochet classes. Today I met my first four victims enthusiasts. They were all charming and we learnt to chain and hold the hook.

Three were knitters and one was a yarn novice all keen to learn something new. The course lasts for five weeks, one hour every Tuesday morning. I stocked up on thick yarn and a load of hooks. There was chat, tea and carrot cake.

We learnt to chain and get the hold right which was harder than I thought. You don't realise that crochet becomes a hand action you can just do. One lady moved onto making a flower with chains and the others made big long strings which they were very proud of. I loved it - the meeting people and seeing their faces change as they made progress, it was so heart warming.

I live in a three story house and my dining room and hall come off the front door so people came into my dining room all set up for a creative hour. Guess what? I have four more this evening so the table has been reset for the some more lovely people. Tuesday is crochet day.

PS: Still doing my dress, mum is coming for the final finish on Wednesday morning - very excited about life in general!
