After decades of failure and frustration, I can crochet.
With the invaluable help of How to Crochet: A Complete Guide for Absolute Beginners by Alison McNicol, the encouragement of Cath Fincher, and a great deal of brow-furrowing and trial and error.
My project this winter is a cross bed blanket. I feel I am now sufficiently competent that I can go and buy the wool.
I wish that I knew then what I know now.
