Perfecting Crochet

Hi All

I'm still trying to perfect my crochet techniques, and have managed to track down a site that shows all the basic stitches, called strangely enough Learn To Knit. However it does show both knitting and crochet techniques, and is perfect for beginners.
So with my yarn and crochet hook to hand, I've been sitting here going through the stitches. And I can now understand what sl st, dc, htr, tr, dtr, and ttr mean, and more inportantly I can actually do the stitches, Hey,hey,hey!!
There are lots more sites offering instructions of course, you just need to find one that suits you. But I have made a couple of flowers, that are actually flower shaped. I'm very pleased with my attempts, so much so, that they are going to be making an appearance on my next card. I may even make some to bring a touch of new-life to some of my winter jumpers. Oooo I'm all excited now.....

You are cleverer (sp) than me I tried several times to learn how to crochet and make the little flowers but failed miserably!!!
