Two weeks ago I downloaded the first pattern for the Janie Crow crochet along with some trepidation. I'm still learning how to read crochet patterns and still feel like a bit of a beginner so wasn't sure what I was getting into.

It started well when I visited the site to download the pattern and had a choice of UK or US terminology. (I prefer US and wasn't sure if I'd have to translate my pattern before I started.) And when I started reading the pattern it was beautifully laid out, easy to read, with lots of photos.
So here are my first set of 'squares' all ready so I can download the second part of the pattern next week. I know that they will get harder as we go, but I also feel I can trust the patterns after this first set. I'm looking forward to learning a whole bunch and can't wait to see the finished blanket.
