12  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Left-handed newbie. Help please on: August 02, 2008 08:07:12 PM
babyjeebus, lol the death grip will get better over time...at least mine is getting there. When I started I just did a few rows of single crochet, then some of double. Then got bored and went right to an amigurumi octopus. I did this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114316.0 and then moved on to a dragon and so forth. For reference I used The Happy Hooker book to help me get started and remember certain stitches. I really recommend it! Not to mention just browsing through Craftster helped a lot too.

Good luck and really have fun!

I'm left-handed and I crochet like all them silly right-handed folk  Wink. It's not that hard at all but I guess the only thing that I had a problem with was my gauge and just making sure I wasn't giving the crochet hook the death grip in my right hand.  I don't hold my needle perfectly but I hold it comfortably in my right hand and I didn't need nay special "lefty instructions". Give it a try!

Someone I know used to have one that she bought and it wasn't lined and didn't have interesting hubcaps or anything! This is way better.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I wish I had one! I can't believe people said bad things about it. I saw it on the front page and got so excited. The colors are lovely and the work that must have gone into it is so well worth it. I LOVE it! Breathtaking. I would totally wear it all the time. I can't get over the wonderful colors and fabrics you've chosen. You should be so proud! Especially because some people (including myself, which makes me even more in awe) can't make their own clothes at all.

I'm on square 6 and let me say that p-b is KICKING MY BUTT! Knitting through the back loop I've done before and it's fairly easy. But I knit fairly tightly so purling-b is kicking my little butt. Otherwise everything is going quickly. I actually really want to skip ahead a few squares to the rose pattern and the mosaics. I might. Shhhh!

Got it! I had a wool/acrylic mix picked out, but I had to stick with regular acrylic as more original choice would have broken my poor college budget but it's a soft Caron that I liked and it had to colors i wanted so I'm okay with it. I thumbed through the book and I'm not looking forward to the mosaics.. but that's only because I've never ever done anything like that and I fear I'll do it all wrong!  Cheesy I'm most looking forward to playing with cables.
We'll see. I'm sure my feelings will change many times as I work through the book.

How is yours coming, Retromiad?

This is so simple even I can do it in my understocked house! Thanks for sharing I'm definitely going to do this. Mmmmm.

I was thinking of caron simply soft...mostly because of the colors and so I won't be afraid to wash it. But now that you've made the point of time I would rather have something high quality. Is your wool like a superwash? I don't want to accidently felt mine if I wash it in the wacky school washers and dryers. LOL.
I'm excited to get the book. I already do a lot of knitting but I skipped over the basics of learning cool stitch patterns so I'm eager to see what neat things the book has! I'll let you know as soon as it gets here. Smiley

mmmmm all of these suggestions osund so yummy. luckily my friends are as adventurous as i am so we're going to try again. i might use the real from scratch mt. dew recipe. but i really want to try devils food cake with dr. pepper and cherry pie filling. And I still want to try the spice cake with root beer.

iamblessed, my mom uses pumpkin in a lot of her cakes too! SO yummy. But if she REALLY doesn't want the pumpkin taste, she uses baby food prunes instead of her oil and eggs. this is also REALLY good. you would never know there were prunes in our cakes!
