At last! I Can Crochet (a Bit!)

A few weeks ago, I didn’t even know which way to hold a crochet hook! I used the basic GS tutorial to get started and then embarked on GSA. There is a lot to learn but GSA is taking this huge stash of unknowing and dealing with it in sensible amounts. I am absolutely hooked (ha, ha) and it’s getting easier : I am up to lesson seven. When things don’t go right, it’s a matter of looking harder at the pattern/notes/videos and up until now, the answer has always been there, even if it’s a tiny detail. I am so pleased to have found GSA and am having a fabulous time. I have a copy of Granny Square Flair that I daydream over and plan ambitious projects for the future!

I have done needlework and other crafts for years but never crochet, and being no longer very young, it’s great that finally I am giving it a go.Thank you so much, this is brilliant.

Photos maybe later when I have more than a handful of squares x

The best thing I have done for my crochet hobby!

This is an absolutely amazing and one of a kind teaching/learning experience. I made most of the squares and read most of the text, and watched most of the videos. After that I could move on and make, suddenly it seemed, any of the complicated squares in Granny Square Patchwork and other patterns. From GSA I learned to read patterns, learned how to join, how to count stitches around the joining, all those little things in the past I had just 'winged' my way through with my work coming out looking messy. I now feel I can read and figure out virtually any pattern. I sometimes go back to the GSA videos for a refresher as I absorb it at the next level. This is such an exciting (and addictive) journey now that I can feel and see my progress. I play violin and it reminds me of some good lessons with a violin teacher. Thank you Shelley! Additionally these squares, these learning/teaching squares are pretty in their own right.

Wow!! look what I just made!

I am a self taught beginner and wanted to upskill. This book and course did that and gave me a greater understanding of the structure of stitches to better know where they should be placed. Also how to read a pattern and some fantastic tips. The videos made it easier to understand some trickier steps. I cannot believe that I was able to create such decorative squares!

Back to basics

I wanted to improve my crocheting skills and Granny Square Academy did exactly that. It’s clearly written and full of helpful photos and video links. It’s a valuable resource. Since then, I have purchased Granny Square Flair and had a few hiccups with some of the more difficult designs, but was able to work my way through. Have 6 more squares to go and I’ll start to put my blanket together. I have learned so much!
