Just Like Granny

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

I thought now is a great time to share my crocheting progress, now that I have made my first Granny Square!!


A little after Ramadaan I had some time to crack open the book "Happy Hooker" By Debbie Stroller. Every day I read a little and practice a little. I've manged to try out all 12 stitch patterns.. my favourite one is the Spike Stitch, because it looks so cool using different colours. I've also made a circle and as you can see above, a square. Insha'Allah now to learn tapestry (jacquard crochet), the afghan stitch, adding decorations, and sewing pieces together.. then I can finally start on making something useful.

Overall I found crocheting to be really easy, and be warned.. it's very addictive! Anyone who wants to give it a try, I really suggest getting the same book and have some fun.

Salaam;

I've only just started crochet myself and yes! Very addictive! :) But in a good way, alhumdillah. ;)

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dear sister b.,

Have you started on any projects? or just in the 'practice' stage as me.

I tried jacquard crochet yesterday.. making a heart design on a square... it turned out well, and very simple for something that looks complicated!

Good luck with the crocheting b. :)
