now, i know it's not much but crocheting is the only thing i haven't been able to teach myself and i've been battling with it for quite some time.

something finally clicked tonite and no one in my house is awake to share in my excitement so i'll share with you guys!


however, i seem to have problems when things don't revolve. back and forth confuses me.

Yeah, granny squares aren't as easy as they seem. Luckily I had a VERY patient grandmother. Smiley

I sat with my sister for hours to teach her how to crochet.  I gave her a small ball of yarn and showed her how to do each stitch. And had her do rows over and over again. She would take it out and do it again till she got it. She now is doing afghans and hand bags last I heard. So I guess what I'm trying to say is just keep at it. Your doing great!  Your stitches look even and your square is square. I think you have it. Keep up the good work.

Careful now... I just learned crocheting a month or two ago, and it is highly addictive!!!!  I started with "rounds" too, and when experimenting with just straight sc, dc, and tc, my double and triple squares are actually trapazoids!!!  It took me a while to figure out which loop to start when I turned!  So I totally get ya!  But I got it, so will you.  Your square is RADTASTIC!
