crochet - first attempts

Hi there,

everywhere I see those wonderful crochet flowers, granny squares and a lot more beautiful things.

Crochet? Me? Long long ago in my childhood there was something called chain stitches *g*. Also knitting is not really something I could, just scarfs are easy, I have tried socks, but that was horrible (now my aunt is knitting them for me).

But crochet? Ok, lets give it a try. I've bought some crochet hooks and two balls of wool and start with the different things that goes beyond chain stitches. I am sorry, but I am not firm yet with those special chrochet vocabulary and leo.dict.org isn't helpful for this :(.

Here is now a pic from my first flower attempt *g*:



the next attempt is much better:



and changing colors is really easy:




My first conclusion: Crochet is much more easier than knitting and makes more fun.
Now I need some more colors. They are already ordered and I hope I will get them on Friday or Saturday.

Ciao,

Pepie

Ich bin ja nun eindeutig kein Häkelfreak ( es reichte in der Schule nur zu einem Brustbeutel und einem sehr sehr häßlichen Frosch), aber diese Blümchen haben was. ;) Andererseits.. brauche ich noch ein Hobby? *ggg*

Very nice crocheting!! I like it better than knitting too- it's faster and way easier to fix any mistakes!
What are you going to make first?

ahh, sorry, Cynthia. I haven't seen your comment yet.

I have crocheted some more flowers. That makes so much fun. I will do some more, perhaps for some couch pillows (because I still haven't any yet ;-)).
