Entering A Forbidden World
Created By: CeciliaE Vandeloo-Annand

I learned to crochet from a left-handed girlfriend when we were both in our early twenties, back in 1970s. My right-handed mother had done beautiful knitting throughout her life. She was unable to teach that skill to me in my teenage years as I could not figure out what to do with my left-handed hands. An internet crochet group I belong to now has educated me about another member's grandmother who crocheted throughout her lifetime and could teach others using either hand to crochet -- sitting across the table or sitting side-by-side; and my young niece's teacher back in the 1980s educated me on a Parents' Night excursion with my best friend (her mother) that Teachers' College in Ontario, Canada were now demonstrating a method using a small pocket mirror so that all their students would be able to demonstrate a craft or skill to children using either hand, "the opposite mirror-image" when teacher and child used different hands with which to write -or- sitting beside when teacher and child both used same hand with which to write. My own personal crochet focus is the infinite variations of the Granny Square as my far-sighted older eyes cannot focus to do fine thread crochet. Oh, well. I was able to travel back and forth to work each day crocheting as this is a portable craft. And a major illness in 1996 did not floor me for long. This Disabled Person is now crocheting at home to relax each day. Crocheting to give as gifts or donate helps calm down my high blood pressure and still feel an active part of my world. Whenever possible, I can teach beginning crochet to a neighbour or new friend or relative. And I am thrilled to open the crochet possibilities to another.
