I have taught myself crochet, so what I know is very limited. My family is wondering just how many washclothes I can make I was trying to understand a term, searched, and came across this site--it looks like just what I need. Since I started collecting yarns and patterns, I've lots to work with and on, but lack confidence, especially in joining yarns and finishing off. Oh, how I'd dread it if a project would come apart! Last time I tried, oh about eons ago , that is what happened, and it put me off crochet...well, except for those washclothes, lol! So, a new beginning it is!
