First of all, I’m SO HAPPY that there’s now a crochet forum–yay! I learned to do the chain stitch and single crochet as a young girl, but never progressed beyond that, and my tension is terrible, so I figured I’d learn how to knit instead, taking classes, and learning all of the basics from an instructor. But I still wish I could crochet…hopefully this forum will help me to try it again.
Anyway, since my tension crocheting is terrible (I guess I can’t get that holding-the-yarn-in-the-left-hand thing downpat!), is it at all possible to hold the hook in your right hand while holding the yarn in the right hand also like you would do to knit English style? I really don’t want to try holding the hook with my left hand…I think it would be too hard for me to try something new like that this late in the game (I’m getting too old to learn new stuff! )
