I ' m not such a Happy Hooker


Decided to sit down and try out the single crochet...Frustration set in early! Wow, you crocheters do this all the time? It's so much more difficult than knitting. But it's slowly making sense...I guess you just have to keep practicing it. Maybe I don't remember what it was like to learn how to knit, since my mom taught me so early. I'm not that great at it, but when I picked it up again last year, it came back quickly.


What I've been doing is when I get discouraged, I just look back into the pattern section of "The Happy Hooker". I'm reminded of why I'm learning this (the flower scarf, the cool open lace sweaters with the bell sleeves that I can wear during the AZ winter) and am able to go back to the struggle of shoving the hook into the "butts" of the chain stitch....I guess I need to loosen up!
