So how I hear you ask is the teach yourself crochet progressing.I have had a go but I think I may have been a bit tense about it, I gave up once I'd snapped the hook clean in half. I do have more hooks and I keep telling myself I will master this craft, but knitting is definitely my real love and that's what I'll be doing this weekend, leaving the learning for another day.

I'm a slow learner
Now that I'm retired I do sometimes worry that I don't stretch myself mentally and might be slipping into some kind of intellectual decline, but thankfully I don't worry very long. I've never been a great one for seeking new adventures, during my working years the terms lifelong learning or personal development plan hardly entered my vocabulary. I like me the way I am and I like things the way I do them, I've been me for 61 years so I know what suits. I've never knitted a sock toe up, possibly only once or twice a jumper top down and I think once a jumper sideways. I did have a bash at spinning a couple of years back but I decided that buying a few balls of yarn is much easier and there's plenty of gorgeous hand spun available without me buying a wheel and eventually producing something lumpy and bumpy.
