It has been a few weeks now since I've mentioned crochet. For those of you who don't know it, I am an absolute beginner in crochet and have found my several attempts to learn this other yarny past-time quite challenging. For one, it uses your left hand in a way that is absolutely not involved in the knitting I do. Two, none of the skills that I have learned in knitting that you might think apply (like tensioning your yarn) works in the way. Lastly, the whole concept of being really bad at something again and that all your attempts are really quite woeful is a little hard to endure when you are time poor and can do very well in the knitting sphere. The joys of embracing adult learning as some would say!
Anyway, although it is not perfect, I can see small bits of progress and that is enough for me at this point in time. What are you learning at the moment?
