Hey Knitters

For the knitters among us who want to try their hand at crochet, here's a very basic beginning. Everything in crochet is started with a chain stitch, so I found this video in case you want to give it a try. I found several actually; but many don't show and explain as well as I believe this one does.

Let me know if you want to give this a try. Next time I'll post the next step in crocheting which is the single crochet. The single crochet can be helpful to make an edge on anything you knit, regardless if you're knitting for yourself or for the homeless.

  1. I usually do crocheting when I was in high school. But I have just a a basic knowledge about it. and perhaps I maybe forgot on how to I do it. Thanks for posting this. This is helpful.

  2. I also have some crochet videos now that folks might like to view if they are interested in learning to crochet. I know I've used videos done by others which have been very helpful too. Mine are at YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/user/CrochetCabana
    There are two series on crochet basics.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
