does anyone know of a book/books for a crochet beginner that is good for left-handed craftsters?  i'm having a hard time learning, and i can't find anyone to teach my themselves.  i found one book that had a whole left handed section, but it turned out it was kind of old and had some errors.  i was looking forward to the stitch n bitch crochet book this month because the knitting book was lefty-friendly, but it's gotten bumped back to april i believe.  i'm dying to crochet!  SOS!

I recently got 'Crochet Your Way' by Gloria Tracy and Susan Levin, it has diagrams on all the stitches for righties and lefties.  It also has a small section on left-handed specifics.  The clothing projects are a bit dorky, but I like the set up of the book.  It has a chapter on each type of stitch and its variations.  You can follow the directions and make practice blocks that you can make into an afghan.
Good luck!
