    I'd love to try, what are we doing, exactly? Just choosing a project and updating on it?

    I haven't crocheted in years, and had forgotten how. About a year ago, I was sent beautiful yarn by a friend, and found a site on it. It was wonderful because it showed how to do it left handed, which I am.

    Unfortunately, I was just getting the hang of a row, when my computer failed and needed to be replaced. I lost a lot of links, including the crocheting one. So, now I can make a looooong row, but don't know how to "turn around!" LOL! Sheesh, anyone need a thin headband? [​IMG]

    I'm not sure I can do it, but I will try. [​IMG] Does anyone happen to know of the step-by-step site which shows a left handed version?

    I love to crochet! My Mom knows how to crochet and taught me how years ago. I just finished crocheting two bibs for my new second cousin ( Mom and Dad's FIRST great-niece!!) and am starting some doilies and other crocheting things for the apartment on our property that I'll soon be moving into.

    Hey Mawchick!

    I meant to come visit here sooner, but life has been busy. I need to get my squares in the mail today.

    I have an afghan started as a surprise for one of my best friend's, but haven't finished it yet. Her b-day is in June, so I need to try finish it up before then. I'm about half way done with it. I started it a while back and got bored crocheting and set it down. Thank goodness it's a surprise. [​IMG]
    It's taken soooo long when I'm making it longer than I usually would.

    I can't wait to see what everyone makes with their squares from this past swap.

    Have a great day! [​IMG]

    Hey, is everyone burned out on crocheting? [​IMG] Nobody has posted here in a while.

    OK, who has some crochet projects going? I finally sent my granny squares off on Mon for the last SWAP. I still have the same afghan that is half finished sitting...waiting.....for me to finish it, but I need a little crochet break.

    What else is anyone working? [​IMG]

    Here's a really great link that can help anyone learn to crochet. It gives step by step w/ pictures. There were many people that participated in the last swap that have never crochet. I learned the basic from my grandmother when I was little, but I had never learned how to do a granny square. I used this link to learn how to do the granny squares for the last swap.

    There's plenty of time to play around with it, so give it a try! [​IMG]

    OH yeah. I love crocheting...and probably need to do it more like I need a hole in my head. I have two projects started I haven't finished. Arg!
    But this sounds like something I could do!!! Are we doing a square then swapping and adding to it? I can keep my mind on one square at a time!
