For several years I've been trying to start learning to crochet. I've made a single crochet bathmat, half of a double crochet shawl and I have a start on a scarf. Everything has wonky ends due to me not knowing exactly where the last stitch is or isn't.Then I heard about Craftyminx Crochet School Hallefreakinlujah! Finally, a video series on beginner crochet! Now I could watch as someone who actually knew what they were doing stuck their hook in the right place! Now I know where I should be sticking, and not sticking, my hook.
It's not great so far, but it's progress.
