At our Tuesday evening craft group those who could crochet showed the ones that could'nt, with some great and not so great results.
First we looked and heard about some very old crochet pieces brought in by members, and the great stories behind them. People brought in old magazines, patterns, books and even a tin filled with crochet hooks and other related things.

Everyone had a partner to help them. Poor Barbara copped for the two lefthanders, who gave her a really hard time when they couldnt even hold the hook. There was a lot of laughter but they eventually both found a method of their own. Only thing is they couldnt do the turning, so by the next meeting they may have a line of crochet about a mile long.
As is always the case Joan, who always says she can't do it no matter what we are doing
made a successful start on this bag.
The saga is to be continued.
Oh yes, one thing that did throw us all was a crocheted, what looked like a shrug in brown and blue,that Melvyn picked up in the Hospice Charity Shop. No matter how we tried it on it didnt look right. Perhaps thats why it was in the charity shop. No picture as I forgot to take one, but we couldnt believe it when a label inside said Marks & Spencer Per Una.
Anyone got any clues as to how to wear it and can you send us a photo if you do know.
