Just getting the hang of crochet.

Pretty much anything with yarn, cotton, needles and thread

There are some beautiful crochet patterns. :lol:

I did manage a small piece of work last year, I think it was single crochet but not sure now. It was the holding of the hook and wool and the tension I struggled with. I did manage but from what I remember I used a very unusual, almost knitting like technique.

Although I write left handed I do use my right hand for most things, I use scissors, eat, throw and catch all with my right hand. I knit right handed too but hold the RH needle on my tummy and do all the work with my left.....which is why I have never mastered circular knitting! :roll:

I use my right hand for a lot of tasks too, Adele. I use scissors in my right hand and iron mostly with my right hand. I knit and played hockey RH. I use cutlery the right way round. I sew and write with my left hand. I think many tasks I use my right hand because there were no left handed options when I was young.
