Hi From Scotland

Recommended Posts

I just want to say hello and I am complete beginner from this week.

I downloaded a 1920s style crochet hat but got stuck from yarncat.com

 

As I said I complete beginner but want to learn so a friend:) gave a copy of a hat pattern .

 

At least I am understanding I am on my 9th round ,I so want to be able to crochet and hopefully one day crochet a beautiful shrug .

 

There are so many beautiful yarns out there.

 

I think now I can honestly say I am completly hooked:lol .

 

We have a new bookstore opened an American bookstore has come to Scotland wonderful:) and the coffee was very good .

 

I also noticed they had simply crochet magazine in the shop yes I bought one uk money £4.95 $5.99.

 

This is where I found your address.

 

How is your weather everyone?

 

Its cold here today been very :rain over the weekend:snow forcast certainly been along spell of milds weather .Scotkat

I wish I could find the simply crochet magazine somewhere I'd love to buy em! :sigh there are lots of beginners on here (I'm still partly beginner aswell) so if you need any help just ask over at the "crochet help" thread :D

Hi Petra and thanks for the welcome. Forecast this morning said higher ground to get :snow its been :rain all day .Usually it would be January it has been cold and not long now till christmas a little snow is seasonal on the day.

Do you not have Borders Bookshop? It has just arrived here.

 

I asked if my paper shop could order a crochet magazine but they were not keen unless I knew the name of which I did not.

 

I am sure I will be asking for help.

Thankyou Vic and Saribear for your lovely welcome.I downloaded 1920'sstyle hat pattern which I fell in :heart with but sadly I could not the this pattern to work out .

 

I got so frustrated with the pattern it was up it was down

 

Have asked help from other buddie friends but not crochet more hobbie site I did not know about this site but now so :U I came across this :hook page.

 

I even got a :headache trying to master the pattern.

 

But have now started another hat pattern from a friend.

 

This a new wintewr hobby for me as well as ballroom dancing which my husband and I starte dof January this year wnd we so enjoy.Anf flowers enjoy making floral arrangements.

 

Now If I could have been better with crochet could have made a silver or gold shrug or shawl to go with my dress for our Xmas dinner dance.

 

Be a wee while before I get to that stage but I can dream.

Greetings from Bemidji, MN. :hi My FIL has relatives that came over from Scotland a couple (?) generations before him. Think that is the main claim of any specific ethnicity on that side of my dh's family.;) He talks a bit proud of that fact, though, it seems to me.

Hi Cheryl and thanyou for the lovely welcome been Florida a few times also have a friend lives in Claremount.

Went touring Grand Canyon this summer just spectacular did the plane ride over the canyon lasting memories.

Badtz Muru and Christina the welcomes are wonderful and I am so pleased I have found this new hobby and somewhere I can post if I cant understand the pattern .

 

As I was earlier this week downloaded free pattern 1920's style hat from wwwyarncats.com the yarn was up it was down I was getting so frustrated but wanted to master this hat.

 

I even went down to two craft different craft classes in our village this week and got help two ladies away with the pattern to see if they can help me out.

 

A friend in the meentime has sent me her pattern which I have posted a photo its a patons pattern seem to be understanding it apart from it seems to be a wee bit tight unless I have done extra or missed arow it was getting late and eyes were getting tired oh just do another row.

I used to think Scots-speak was perpetuated by an ill informed American romance market...until I went to Scotland! ;)

 

I know what you mean about typing an accent. It's hard to roll the R in Aberrrrrdeen!

 

Have you been getting the nasty :2rain there as here? I'll try to send some :sun your way soon. I don't mind the :wbrr too much as long as I have something warm to wear. Better get with it then!

 

(gotta love all these emoticons!)
