I did it!
I taught my friend Lynn how to crochet. How much crochet do you need to know in order to say, "I know how to crochet" ? Well, Lynn picked it up pretty quickly (I think). I've only taught a few people how to crochet, most of them, kids. By the end of our lesson, Lynn was sc and turning and going back and forth and talking at the same time! I had taught her how to rip out stitches when you make a mistake and how to turn, how to ch and sc, and the anatomy of a stitch to help her know where to insert the hook and how she knows when she is "done" with a stitch and a row. So I'm very pleased! Like I said in an earlier post, I gave her a "starter" that was about 4 rows of 15 sc, and let her start from there. I'll have to teach her slip knot, chs, and working into the chains next. She was so excited she made me make her a list of what to buy at the craft store so she could keep going. Of course, I let her keep the starter ball, and because she's a good friend, I let her borrow a good hook (not a disposable hook!) Very, very cool.
