My Great Aunt Nancy taught me the basic stitch. I cut circles from the plastic that holds soft drink cans together and croched around them. Made a wide length that was used to weave the cirles into a chain and later formed a circle (a trivet). I found this to be quite enjoyable so I bought a book on granny squares. I could not understand the jargan but keept trying. I took my miserable square to the office to see if anyone there could help me decipher this strange new language. The only person there that could help was the last person that I expecxted to even know how to do hand work. She helped me understand the strange language and said "you have to do some thing right -either hold the hook or the yarn correctly - either is OK". I just could not master the hook correctly but I did master the yarn tension. Ever since then I have continued to teach with her attitude "you have to do some thing right".

One of my co-workers "student" learned to crochet quite nicely. It was fun as I am right handed and she is a lefty. Actually this was easier than we expected, we just faced each other as a mirror image. When she was forced to leave the office due to a personal illness, she took the crochet lessons with her, sealed in her heart and mind. The family soon became migrant workers and her capable hands were able to help support the family. We have kept our friendship throughout the years and now we have become co-workers again. Our lunch breaks are filled with the sound of crochet from our hands, hearts and souls. Thanks CROCHET for keeping us sane.
