so, I've been searching all the posts about crochet-ing with plastic bags, but how do you keep them from sticking together, or to the hook??? Or is it that I'm trying to keep the tension too high?  All I've got so far is a GLUMPH of plastic. Should go in the Stitch and Botch page. ha.

mine werent really sticky, but they were kinda sticky, lol. i put baby powder on my hands and that helped them slip along over my finger better.

that's what i recommend.

plus, it is nice smelling so if it doesnt all come off at the end, you're not too bad off.

goodluck!

thanks!  in DESPERATION   I used PAM (registered trademark here) to wipe down the hook with, and it seemed to help tremendously.   But it doesn't smell nice!   *crochet-ing industriously*
