I am still unable to crochet for long periods but my left hand (broken in a fall last Sept) is slowly getting better. I still find it difficult to hold fine yarn as I cannot hold the last two fingers tight enough but I am persisting with small projects because as they say 'use it or lose it". So here are a few pieces of crochet that I have been able to manage even though it takes me longer nowadays to get something finished.
This is a potholder that I saw on a blog, very different and very thick and easy to make once you have mastered the stitch.I have finally been able to learn the zig zag or chevron stitch. I tried crocheting from a pattern in an old Mon Tricot book and after nearly tearing out my hair and giving up altogether, I consulted my friend Pat who has been crocheting since a child, passing the problem on to her poor girl, and after many tries by her, we have come to the conclusion there is definitely a mistake in the pattern.So here is my first chevron washer with some others I have been making.
