Be creative and Learn from Crochet mistakes

If you are one of those people learning to crochet and you make a mistake then don't let it worry you. With a little bit of creativity you might still be able to make something unique. That's right you have to look outside your comfort zone and think of ways to still use them.

Use wrong size crochet hook or thread

How many times have you gone to make something and found you don’t have the right size crochet hook or thread? Instead of going to the shop to buy the one to match what the pattern requires you decide to make do with what you have. I have done this on a few occasions.

This could cause a problem as the article grows. In some cases you may have to allow extra stitches on corners or an extra one placed evenly around a circular doily for instance. You need to do a small practice piece to see if it will work or not.

Are Shoppers Fooled by Size of Food Products when Comparing Prices

Many manufacturers are continually changing the sizes of their products. Are you the shopper fooled by sizes of food products when comparing prices.  Next time you go to your local supermarket have a look at the sizes of each brand of product that you want to buy.

For instance you may want to buy a tin of baked beans and there are three different brands available on the shelf. They all look the same size on the shelf; but are they? If you take a closer look you will see that one is 400grams one 420grams and the other is 425 grams.  Why are they all different weights?
I understand that all vegetables do not weigh the exact same although I still believe that baked beans, kidney beans, or say Lima beans should weigh close to the same.  If you look at the picture you can see I am using three tinned examples as I did not have three tins of the same products in my cupboard at time of writing this article.

This also occurs in small goods products like bacon and cold meats. If you would like to read about other supermarket things you need to be aware of read Powers to be taking control

Right or Left Hand you can still make Crochet Gifts for Christmas

Many people have the idea that being left handed limits their chances of making a variety of different crafts.  That is so wrong.  Because you see a pattern with the instructions showing a right handed person in the picture does not stop the left handed person doing the same thing. 

If you have a problem just photo copy the picture and then paste it into your photo program like Paint shop pro or photo shop and flip the mirror image.


Now you can see it is not so daunting, the only difference is using your left instead of your right hand.



How to make a chain for the right handed person.



To start you need to make a loop, the right handed person holds the end of yarn in left hand and the crochet hook in right hand. Now push the hook through the loop and put yarn round hook and pull back through the loop. You have now created your first chain stitch. Practice this with a scrap of crochet cotton so as not to ruin your new yarn.  Then do it a few more times to make sure you will soon be doing it like a pro.






The left handed person will do this the same except they will hold the yarn in the right hand and hook in the left.



Crochet is a terrific way to keep your hands busy while watching TV especially in the winter months when your fingers are so cold.



If you are looking for new ideas or different patterns then you can download free crochet patterns online. You can find patterns for baby clothes, crochet toys, crochet tops for the children or patterns for doilies or tablecloths once you feel more confident to try your hand at.


Whatever type of crochet you make I hope you enjoy learning a new craft so you can make others a lovely gift that they cannot make themselves.

West Australian Daniel Ricciardo joins the F1 big boys in England

Daniel Ricciardo started off his racing career like many other boys at a young age in Go-Karts.  His continued success has finally led him to live the dream of finally being able to race with the big boys in F1 at the Silverstone track in England.

It will be the first time that two Australians will line up on the grid together.  Mark Webber  a veteran F1 driver has always been a local hero.  He never complains when facing a variety of challengers, or blames anyone else if something does not go his way.

Mark Webber is a true gentleman and a good person to set an example to other drivers.  If Daniel Ricciardo shows as much diplomacy as Mark in his racing career with F1 he will also have a great number of loyal followers.

Ricciardo made people really take notice with his test drive at Abu Dhabi last season, after lapping 1.5 seconds faster that Vettels winning pole time earlier in the week. If he could do it then what will this week coming prove when driving with the rest of the F1 drivers.

Many Formula 1 Drivers started their careers out in racing go- karts when young.

Good luck to the two Australians racing in England.
