My first attempt!
Yesterday I did a 2 hour beginners course in learning to crochet.
It was at my local wonderful sewing shop
The lady who taught 6 of us has the patience of a saint, but she did mention that she also used to teach special needs so I guess we were in the right hands.
Being a total left hander she new she was going to have trouble
(that's why my mother gave up trying to teach me knitting and sewing years ago....)
So I was bullied into doing it right handed - OK so asked to try.
The problem I had was my hook stayed in one position and I moved the wool instead, not the way you are to do it and I was slow, I am a fast learner so picked what I was 'meant' to be doing quickly, chain stitch the double onto treble, which if you squint your eyes enough you may just be able to spot them on this masterpiece I made.
Then in the last 1/2 hour it was suggested I go back to doing it left handed, as I think right handed crocheting was never going to produce a granny square in the near future(oh I can't wait to make one of those one day).
So left handed it is now, but my brain had to go back to the beginning and do it reversed.
Anybody wanting to learn, go to a class, drink tea, have a laugh and one day soon you will be better than me.
