Crochet across the miles

Hi Susan,

I just wanted to say thank you for your help with my first crochet rug. I’m pretty new to crochet, and even though I’ve been knitting since I was a child I’ve always found crochet to be such a challenge!

I eventually learned to crochet a beanie by watching a video, but I still found it pretty hard going! For some reason, I find it really difficult to understand a crochet pattern!

Being able to message you and send you progress pictures of where I’d got to with my rug was so helpful! Even though we are on opposite sides of the world, it was like having you in the room with me, checking on where I’d got to and giving me tips on what to do next. Even the time difference between the UK and New Zealand didn’t seem to slow things down!

I understand much more now how crochet is adaptable in ways that knitting isn’t, and that it doesn’t necessarily follow the same rules!

Thank so much. I’m sure I’ll be in touch again from all the way here in New Zealand!
