Today, I am lucky enough to be part of an amazing, hilarious, raunchy, outrageous group of women who get together and craft every Wednesday night. The Oak Street Hookers take turns bringing a treat, some of us bring a drink (or two), and we teach each other everything we know. It's the highlight of my week, and keeps me sane!
But for the ten years before that, I did all my crocheting and knitting alone - barring the five minute crash course that started it all. I am self taught, and I struggled through books and "how to knit for kids" videos from the library for years.
Then youtube and Ravelry came along and taught me a few more tricks.So to add to the wealth of knowledge out there, one of my fellow hookers and I made a video and uploaded it to youtube. It was very spur of the moment, and completely unrehearsed, but I think it makes it pretty clear.
Feel free to make fun of my Midwestern accent (I clearly learned to say "yarn" while living near Chicago!), and tell me what other videos you'd like to see! What do you want to learn about crochet?
