Grandma did....

I tried to crochet last night.


Several hundred years ago I used to crochet leper bandages.
..............no really!


It wasn't hard because they didn't have to look nice...or be the same number of stitches each line...



This is hard!

Why didn't I have Grandma teach me??

My daughter shelbie has crochet and knitted leper bandages for years. She started in 5th grade. Now sweet no matter how they look.

Oh, I have that chain stitch thing down good. I can make you a mile long chain if you want and you can er. . . hang your laundry on it?

I thought T's comment was really funny! Maybe Angel can teach you up at D.V., because Grandma did teach her...and she does it right handed, so you wouldn't have to try to figure it out backwards!! :)

Keep working and you'll get the hang of it. It is all about finding a groove and just going with the flow. You have to stop thinking and just let your hands work. The more that I crocheted the better I got. One day it will just click and then it will be so easy for you.

I didn't have a grandma to teach me either. My Aunt started to crochet to stop smoking. It worked too! That is how I learned :)
