On my last visit to Vancouver my mom gave me three craft books, one on embroidery and two about crocheting. They have lovely patterns but they are written in Italian. I mentioned on a previous post that I can't read crochet or knitting patterns but I'm determined to learn. So I crocheted beanie hats from a very simple pattern and was very happy with the finished hats.
But..Italian, yikes, I don't know if I'll ever manage..
I'm off to Vancouver again, this time for work, but I will be staying with my mom, and with free evenings I wonder what she can teach me this time around, hopefully socks...
