My creative space... passing the crochet torch!

This week I have totes passed the crocheting bug onto my lovely almost 16 year old niece!  She was super easy to teach - tell her and show her once and she was off!

And as you know, once you get addicted to crocheting, there is no stopping you - even on the morning school run whilst waiting in the car!

(A small sidebar - the first two piccies has her hair in my magnificent braids.  The last one - lovely wavy 'slept in my braids overnight' hair.  Love it!)

I have sent her home now with some badly written instructions of mine and an extensive list of blogs to visit for tips, hints and advice.

Here are just a few:

Feel free to add any other useful crochet linkyloos in your comments. 

Other creative people visit over here every Thursday.
