Left-handed Crocheter
Created By: Flora Carter

All my life I was told I couldn't do things right, wasn't fast enough to suit members of my family, and would never be able to master a craft because I was left-handed, etc. I was made to feel I was handicapped.
However, when I was about 35 I decided to go to the local community college to at least try to learn how to crochet. I immediately went to the instructor and ask, "Can you teach a left-hander how to crochet?" She said she'd try and if I didn't feel I could catch on, she'd return my money at the end of the three hour session. I said that was fair and that I would stay.
That evening I watched her across the table (like looking in a mirror) and then began doing the same stitches in the reverse. What an exhilaration I felt! The instructor made me feel I could master the skill it took to crochet. It was a rush having someone believe in me and a surprise I caught on so quickly.
I am now 65, have crocheted so many things I cannot count, taught others how to crochet, belong to a prayer shawl ministry, and make baby blanket for newborns in our church.It has been a blessing to do for those in need of comfort and it has given me a wonderful feeling inside knowing I've given of myself for others.
As an aside, it does my heart good to hear members of my family admire my work and wished they could as well...Yea!!!!
