My Secret Santa......Mummycupcake.....had sent me a little crochet bag, with wool, a needle and a pair of scissors.
Yeaterday I knitted my first bag and used the crochet needle to help me with the sewing.

I thought today would be a good day to give crochet a go and made this little flower from the wool and the kit from Mummycupcake!!!

Thank you soo much for introducing me to crochet!!!

well done you.
Never been able to crochet more than a straight line of loops. (after that it all gets too complicated.

What a lovely secret santa gift!!

That's very good. I've never been much good at doing things like that, though haven't tried much recently.

Clever you. I love crochet, it grows quicker than knitting. Keep going.

I decided after doing the flower, to have a go at something and get used to the stiches. I could not follow the online tutorial person as she did it all far too quick, so I just did it and I have now made a lovely neck warmer for my flower!! I had no idea what I was making as I was doing it!!
It is soo cold today, I have decided to stay in and I am now wearing my neckwarmer and I am not taking it off!!

So again Mummycupcake THANK YOU!!!

I'm so glad you are enjoying your crochet set.

I was a bit worried about doing the secret santa as I mainly make things for babies and small children.

I came across you on another forum and noticed you liked knitting so I was going to make you a knitting bag but I wanted to make something on my embroidery machine so had to keep it small, you had also mentioned you'd like to try crochet so the idea was born.

When I went to buy the crochet hook I totally confused the lady serving me. I tried to explaing what a secret santa was but she just didnt get it. She asked what size I needed, I didn't know. She asked what size you already had, I didn't know. She asked what you were going to make, I didn't know. I ended up asking which was the most popular.:confused::confused: I didn't dare ask her about wool!!! I showed it to my next door neighbour who kindly gave me the wool.

I love your neckwarmer you clearly have a talent for crochet:first:Well done

I hope you liked the picture too x
