I've never seen anyone crochet left handed; it's like looking into a mirror.  Roll Eyes

I was thinking the same thing, very neat! Thanks for the video!

I'm going to start working on the April square early... just in case Wink

Thanks so much for that video. I was doing something completely different and it was NOT working out.

I'm on track now.

I have two left handed friends who crochet.  One was taught by a righty, and so learned to to it right-handed!  It's the only thing she does with her right hand.  The other friend I taught, even though I an right handed.  We found that the trick was to face each other, not sit side-by-side.  It's still a little weird..I'll glance up and see that she's doing something horribly wrong, then realize it's just my point of view... Cheesy

I can't wait to get started on the next square.  Thanks for all the prep work, CraftAddChick!

Here's my Feburary Squares...not too late this time.  I'm already having problems with the March square...I needed to take a break so I'm uploading my pictures now. 



I'm real happy with how my heart turned out...I had problems getting it straight but eventually I messed with it enough and made it straight (even though I did't follow the pattern exactally around that row...)



My Raverly square

BTW..what size hook are you guys using?  My squares are comming out HUGE...maybe I'm not using the right size hook. I'm using a K.  But maybe it's too late now that I have 4 squares done.  Maybe I'll just have huge squares on my afgan.

So far I have been using an I for everything, even the ones that say to use something else. And magically mine have all turned out to be 11". O_O weird, I know! But as long as yours all are the same size, you're good.

I've been super distracted by my new found hobby...spinning! So much so that I had to alter my new-years resolution to count spinning so I won't have failed on my "knit/crochet at least 5 days a week" promise. Oh goodness! I still haven't done Ravelry's February square yet. I gotta get on that!

Yeah I was thinking that too. It's a lovely square but i think if there is just one square that's 3d it might stand out too much from the rest.... don't know yet.
