  12. I could never do anything more than endless chain stitching when I held the crochet hook like a pencil. My mother crocheted that way. When I taught myself to crochet later on I found that the knife method was the most comfortable for me. I found I held the yarn differently by grasping it in my left hand and not weaving or wrapping the yarn around fingers to control tension. Thinking about all this, it occurs to me that this method would be what's comfortable for me now even after the stroke. As everyone else has said: "Whatever works!"
  13. Terrific projects!
  14. Pretty shawl!
  15. Great afghan!
