It's just me. A former co worker taught me how to make a granny square about a year ago and I learned the rest on my own. She only wanted me to learn what she wanted me to learn when she wanted me to learn it. She wouldn't teach me to read patterns or to learn any other stitches just the DC and chain. When she saw how I was progressing on my own she quit wanting to meet on lunch breaks to crochet. She was very critical of my work and if I asked her for help she would unravel my work and say she had to take it home with her to work it out then tell me how to do it. Well that left me with nothing until she was ready to bring it back to me. I did not like the way things were going so I did my own thing. Before I stopped asking her for assistance, she would set up dates to meet me to crochet and then stand me up. She seemed to be such a nice lady too. Very sweet and soft spoken. I just started to find help in books and the internet. I have learned so much on my own and here at Crochetville. So I guess I am better off without her. I like being on my own.
