Well some of you now my knitting is so slow it would make a snail look like it was doing the speed of light...so I've tended to stay away from those kinds of projects. Now last week I discovered crochet (thank you ravelry). Yes I know its always been there....I just never thought to try it.
It is sooo much faster than knitting. I managed to get nearly 2 meter scarf crocheted in 15 days!
Inspired by Osgoods scarf in the doctor who special.
Then in about 3 days crocheted myself a beret type hat. In TARDIS colours of course.
You may ask 'what pattern did you use'? But I didn't really use a pattern...I crocheted just by eye. Practiced the individual stitches, crocheting in the round and increase/decrease stitches. Then looked at images different stages of the items being made and kinda did it by eye. I used youtube to learn those stitches after the book I bought turned out to be less than useful.
My next project is a TARDIS roundel blanket.
