Piquing my Pinterest

This week my Pinterest Pins have been pretty much all about crochet. It is something I have been trying to teach myself for the past 12 months, but I always throw my hands up in the air and give up.

Well, that is no more! My new blog will be going live this week and the first crafty challenge I am setting for myself is teaching myself to crochet. I figure if I do it publicly and have people follow my journey, then I will at least get one project finished!

Here are just a few of my 'Learn to Crochet' pins... I went a little pin crazy again!

Can you crochet? Or do you think it is a skill best left to your Nana?

I am linking up with Tina from Tina Gray {dot} me for Piquing My Pinterest and Natasha from 5 Minutes Just For Me for Pinning and Singing.

  1. Beautiful! I can crochet, I love it. But my hands get a little painful these days so I haven't done it in ages.

    Good luck learning. I much prefer it to knitting. Crochet gives you an "instant" look at what you are making :)

  2. That’s why I would like to learn so much! I can knit, but it takes me ages, crochet seems like a craft that will satisfy my ‘instant gratification’ needs :-P

  11. I am very late to visit and to say thank you for linking up to my Pinning and Singing party-I am so sorry! I have been a bit pre-occupied with my 12 Days of Christmas series on my Christmas blog! Have you been by to visit? I would be so thrilled if you did-there's lots of Christmas inspiration over there!

    Thanks again for linking up and sharing these great pins! I have tried the whole crochet and knitting things but I get a bit arthritic when I do too many things with my hands so I will just have to admire your beautiful creations!

    Best wishes,

    Natasha @ 5 Minutes Just for Me
