Wednesday Memes

This Wednesday I am taking part in two memes.

First up one I haven't taken part in before - Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday

My workdesk is basically any free surface in my kitchen. Usually the table but as that is often a dumping ground for the rest of the family I am using my counter top and cooker top.  This is the Basic Grey Page Of The Month kit for March which arrived yesterday with my scraproom kit.  It is a shocking photo sorry.




The layout is a party theme but I am thinking of using some beach pictures instead as we don't really have any party pics.



This picture shows the April one aswell which looks fab.


Second meme is the usual WIP Wednesday



I have a bit more of my Sockknitters Anonymous mystery socks done.  I am finished on clue 3 once  I have turned the heel.



I have made it my mission this year that I will learn to crochet.  I saw this on one of my favourite blogs and was inspired to give it a go.  I had this book recommended to me as a brilliant resource for beginners and had to laugh at the bit on the cover which says -learn to crochet - even knitters.  I don't know if being able to read knitting patterns and do just about anything that is asked of me with regard to knitting will be a stumbling block or a help. Anyway I have ordered it and will take it from there once it arrives.  I learnt to do a foundation chain as part of a provisional knitting cast on but that is about it.

hehehe I cannot wait to read about your adventures in crochet :P And as an FYI, youtube is a great resource for video tutorials on different crochet stitches.

That sock is getting interesting!

I thought that sock was perhaps a fingerless glove at first as it's so pretty! I like all the papers you've got laid out, looks like you're getting ready to start a project.

YAY you learning crochet!!! I can't wait to see what you're whipping up soon. Let me know if you have any questions. It really is a great book. I bought it when I started as well.

I'm having a really busy week but am quickly dropping by to make sure all our WOYWW friends get the chance to win the last of our weekly draws before the BIG one over in our blog shop. Pop over and join in the fun. Good luck.
Hugs,

Late getting round, but better late than not at all,:). Love your crochet, and look forward to seeing what you make of the layout. Shaz #148

Hello Kerry, love the look of your scrapbook kit but the thought of you crafting on your cooker top fills me with fear - not the safest of places to have to work on but it does show your determination! It will be interesting to see how you, as a knitter, get to grips with crochet - good luck. Elizabeth x #74
