I"m jealous of all the knitting patterns there are floating around that are so cool and nifty.. and Here I am, a intermediate crocheter... good enough to know that I *could* do something like those fingerless gloves in the knitting section, but not good   enough to be able to transcribe into crochet.  *sigh* 
I want a stitch N'Bitch for Crocheters!!!!!
I tried learning to knit... I think I"ll try again, but MAN it's tough coordinating TWO needles!!  eep.
(I"m too impatient and broke to crochet something BIG like a sweater..)

Okay, i'm done my pouting.

have you looked at converting some knitting patterns to crochet? there are a bunch of web pages out there that give help on how to do it. though i did see one that warned that corcheting takes MORE yarn than knitting.

and as for learning to knit, keep at it! i had a tough time when i first began. and i'm still really a beginner. i have to consult the pictures in various books sometimes when i get stuck. also, you should see if there's a stitch-n-bitch that meets in your area. maybe you'd have more luck if you had a "support group."

where are we going, and why am i in this handbasket?

Just do a quick google search: wrist warmers, crochet, and you will find quite a few wrist warmer patterns for crochet.  I just found one called punk (I think).  I know how to knit and crochet, but this time I only wanted to carry around 1 hook instead of two needles.

Good luck!

I'll try those suggestions.
I just feel like i'm missing out in many areas of my life right now, and felt that it's fairly safe to complain and pout about my craftiness or lack thereof. Tongue

I love winging it, but I really REALLY should discipline myself to follow patterns more often.

I found a cool wrist warmer pattern at:


She has a section with free patterns and a few are crochet.  I've made two pairs of the crochet wrist warmers and my daughter thinks they're really cool.

I know what you mean.  I've seen different things about doing conversions, but it was all beyond me.  I knitted a scarf in 1988, but I seem to have lost whatever skill I was developing, because I can't work the two needles.  It just seems easier to me to crochet.  I keep trying though.  Wink

Good luck!!

Oh wow!
thanks you guys!

GO figure.  I would have just had to do a search.
I really didn't mean you guys to do my work for me. Smiley

But very cool.
I have tons of bookmarks for crochet sites, but 90 percent of them aren't really stuff I'd like.
