    Hi everyone! I've just started learning how to crochet. Does anyone have any tips? Currently I can only do a double crochet :)

    That is very sweet of you to do. I have seen a lot of people taking part in the random acts of kindness and it is something I want to have a go at in the near future. :)

    I’d say YouTube is a great place to start, there lots of video tutorial on there that can help you to learn new stitches 😊

    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    @jess63 what the heck that is so cute :lol: how long did it take to make?

    Surprisingly not as long as I thought, only about 3 weeks which is good for me I’m normally a lot slower 😂

    @jess63 these make such good Christmas gifts! I started to learn crochet as my new years resolution to learn a new skill - though can't really make anything beyond a scarf :)

    @jess63 the suitcase mouse is so adorable. I keep seeing these pop up on my fyp on Instagram. I've also seen the knitted frogs too and they look so adorable. I might have to make both!.

    @amy02 Crochet is so fun to get into though it does take a few tries and goes in the beginning. I think it's great that you put it as a new years resolution too as it's a relaxing hobby too and a great past time <3

    Exactly @Amy22 you end up falling down a rabbit whole of cute crochet and before I know it I have a whole list of things I want to make 😂
