Boohoo! last crochet lesson

Today was the last session of my five week crochet course. I didn't even know if I could teach people or not but Tuesday has been the best day of my week for the last month or so.

Nine ladies who did not know how to hold a hook can chain, double crochet and treble. They have made a jam jar cover, brought along their little makes, managed to get straight edges on a square and made friends along the way.

Today was their last hour long session and they wanted to make a granny square so the focus was to follow a picture tutorial as much as they could with little shouts of 'Jo!' when things went a bit wrong.

They all want to carry on having hour sessions on Tuesdays because they have become addicted to crochet (or maybe it's the cake)and to fulfil the creative ideas they have swimming round in their heads.
I love Tuesdays. Jo x


  1. Lovely! I taught myself to crochet over the summer from a book. It is a lovely relaxing activity. I'm sure learning would have been quicker in a group setting. :-)

  2. Wow! How cool that you are getting to teach crochet! I would love such a job where i can do what i love the most :) The granny squares are great for a beginner.. Hope you have many such adventures on Tuesdays!

  3. Oh that's wonderful "Jo". You are a great teacher and now you have proof! Congratulations.

  6. Hi Jo a great post, you are obviously a natural. Just wanted to ask if you run workshops as I think I live quite near to you. Would love to go on a course to extend my crochet skills. Love your blog, thanks

    1. I will message you and let you know what the next run of courses entails. Jo x
