When all else fails...

It's happened.
I've lost my Crochet Mojo.
I don't know where it's gone or how long it's been gone for.

I've tried starting different crochet projects but they all just end up with me swearing & undoing them.
So I've started knitting again.

Knitting is the very first thing I learnt as a kid, you have to knit before you crochet right?
This is going to be a vest for bubba Joe.  I'll tell you more of the details later, let's just see if I can get my Knit on!
Can you knit?  Can you knit & crochet? Where did you learn to knit?  Are you self taught? I'm mum taught!


  1. My grandma taught me to knit and my mom taught me to crochet. Hopefully you will find your crochet mojo soon, until then keep calm and carry yarn.

  2. Technically I learnt how to knit when I was a child, my childminder taught me. However, I didn't practice after the initial flush of learning. I learnt again 4 years ago at a class. I took the class because I couldn't work out how to read patterns. I taught myself to crochet out of a book about 6 months earlier and thought it would be just as easy to pick up knitting again, but it wasn't, so I signed up for the class.

  3. Grandma taught me one stitch but now I am learning more stitches in crochet! Tried to learn knitting but I only make twirly scarfs, I sent you a skein of that yarn. Lately I am making hats with knify knitters and they work faster than I can knit. The crochet book I have been learning new stitches out of is "The Crochet Stitch Bible" by Betty Barnden love it

  4. My Granny taught me to knit when I was in 6th or 7th grade. I made a huge mistake (brought the yarn under the needles and project instead of around the needle) that could not be ripped out and I put my needles down for years. Then my stepmom taught me to crochet. Thats my "go to" craft because its very easy and relaxing for me. But 2 years ago I made a new year resolution to learn to knit and I did. This year I knit a sweater vest for my new baby boy and I have two knit blankets working right now. Once the 3 blankets I am currently working on are done I will knit a hooded sweater for my boy.

  5. I have tried to Crochet lots of times but I always end up giving up so I envy you being able to Crochet. Marion x
