Hi from Kentucky

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm Shannon. I haven't been crocheting for very long; I started right after Thanksgiving of last year.

 

I'd have been doing it for a lot longer, but I'm left handed. In sixth grade (over 25 years ago), I joined a crochet club at school, learned how to chain, and then no one had any clue how to tell me to do anything else. I made lovely chains, while everyone else was making granny squares. :lol Fast forward a couple of decades or so, and I for some reason decided to try again. I bought a little kit at Barnes & Noble, that had instructions and hooks, patterns and a little yarn. I fussed with it for awhile and gave up again, and then a few months ago got annoyed that I couldn't figure it out and fought with it until I did. :)

 

Looking forward to poking around. :)

:welcome to the Ville! I have been crocheting more years than I can remember :lol and I still am learning. When a new to me technique comes up, I go to this youtube site http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=FFF15236A0B97605&page=1. It also has instructions for lefties. And it's so nice to see someone else learning this wonderful craft to pass it forward! :hook

Hello & Welcome from Elizabethtown, KY! Hope you enjoy this site as much as I do. You'll learn so much! I have only been crocheting around a year and was very frustrated when I started as well. But, like you I just fought with it until I figured it out. Good luck to you and have fun!!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. :) Good to see some fellow (and former) Kentuckians here! Sometimes it seems like everyone I know knits, but no one else crochets.
