  1. It's my pleasure and I'm glad the pain is only brief. Thank you for all the advice.
  2. Thank you, I will be sure to speak to my doctor about it. I hope your right hand isn't causing anymore pain.
  3. Thank you so much. I will definitely look into the brace after I have rested my hand. I think I may also reach out to my doctor in case there is another reason as to why my hand hurts.
  4. Thank you so much for the reply, I really appreciate it. It was definitely something really upsetting thinking that i might not be able to venture into the business I was hoping to develop. Even started looking at alternative types of craft that I could use.

Regarding my index finger on the yarn holding hand, sometimes it is up in the air however i try to adjust it everytime I notice. However funnily enough even though I have been
  5. Dear fellow crocheters, I am 26 years old and would class myself as an intermediate crocheter and love everything about the craft.

  7. Thank you very much for the help and the link
  8. Hello everyone, I have been having trouble working with a magic circle/ring. I can never seem to work the second round of my pattern when using the magic circle method. Is it possible to substitute this method with a chain and slip stitch into the first stitch to make a circle ? For example, if the pattern requires 5 SC inside a magic circle, if possible how could this be substituted for the chain and slip stitch method ? Thank you.
  9. Hello, I would still consider myself a beginner however love crocheting and am a fast learner. I am currently working on a project and came across a 2 stitch single crochet increase. I'm wondering is this 2 single crochets in 2 stitches or 2 sc in just 1 stitch ? Thank you.
  10. I can definitely see the difference thank you
  11. Of course you can, Okayy thank you again I'll do the rest of the squares with 2 chains on the corners. I'll use these squares that Iv done at the bottom
  12. Thank you very much I decreased the chains in between each DC, and Iv made my first squares for my blanket, and I'm so happy with them thank you again for all your help and to everyone else who replied to this post.
  13. Thank you for your advice I'll give that a go
  14. Thank you so much I'm glad Iv finally managed to do t straight I'm going to make different coloured grannys with 4 rounds and join them together making a blanket
  15. I'm backkk Iv been continuously practising my granny squares and I think I'm getting the hang of it now. Do you think I should practise more or can I start making my blanket?
