I had two lovely ladies in the stall today for a double lesson. They both knew how to crochet but were having some problems with spacing and tension - making squares square and that kind of thing. So we started from scratch with granny squares and it quickly became apparent that the problem was not enough chains between clusters of trebles, so we fixed that and they were away!
They both left with a better understanding of how to make a shape work, so next week they are booked in for lessons on stars and flowers, and if we get that done then we can try circles. It's all very exciting!
