A couple of days ago I went over to my Grandma's so she could teach me how to crochet. The only thing I knew about crocheting is that it uses only one needle, whereas knitting uses two. I was handed a cute little needle with a hook on the end and told how to begin.
I can definitely tell this is going to be a slow process - bummer. I was hoping to be able to catch on quickly and be making sweaters by next week. Not really, but I was hoping I would be able to get a little farther than what I have. I can make a chain with a second row on it and that's about it. Fail.
I will have to go back in a couple days and try again. It doesn't help that I have absolutely no patience for anything, so that's going against me. Grandma sent me home with a book, so I may take a look at that to see if I can get any further. In the meantime I will just sit and stew about it :p

There are a lot of cute things that can be made from crocheting and I really hope that I can figure this out! It's frustrating to say the least, but I know it takes time and I will have to learn to be more patient with it.
Do any of you crochet or knit? Was it hard for you to learn?
