First post ever.

Hello this is double crochets,

  we are two sisters from Athens, in our mid twenties, that happen to be happy yarn lovers. And this is our very first post! We decided to write this first post in English, but you have to expect that some of the posts to come will be in Greek. By coincidence today is the day that the 2nd annual knit and crochet blog week starts! Learned about this just yesterday and we decided to hurry up a bit the publishing of our first post. Our second one will be about the topic of the blog week (coming soon, just wait patiently)
 
 We are rather old in blog-o-sphere, never managed to make a blog work, maybe the reason is that we didn't have an actual purpose, now we have! Our goal is to spread the word about crocheting and knitting among our friends and acquaintances here in Athens, Greece and as far as this blog can reach, since we both have friends all around the globe and would love to have even more! Funny fact: our first choice of name was "Spread the Thread",  (which will be the tagline for our projects) but we finally came up with Double Crochets and was instant love.

   The double crochet (abbreviated dc) is one of the most common crochet stitches and is about twice as tall as a single crochet. Sooo daDA! hahah  (Here are some links for how to double crochet 1, 2)



Cheerio for now, see you later with the post of the first day of the blog week
p.s you can read our full *story* here.
