A friend of mine is organising a charity event and she asked me recently if I would mind lending my crochet skills to her project. I was a little concerned that she over-estimated my ability, but when she clarified that she just wanted me to make some little flowers I thought I'd give it a bash.

The pattern is for little Forget-Me-Nots, which are really quite cute. Each guest will get one. Well, that's the plan anyway - so far I've only made ten! My first attempt was with a 4mm hook, and it was far too big. I haven't any photos of the evidence as they were so bad I disposed of them! I got myself online and picked up a 2.5mm hook, and the result was much more positive:

It's much more fiddly than I'm used to - my crochet experience at this point is pretty much limited to that 4mm hook and double-knitting wool. It's getting easier by the flower, though. And it's been a nice confidence boost! I'm growing a little garden on my desk!
