Becoming a Hooker

Really trying to become a HAPPY one too! LOL

Obviously I am slowly but surely learning how to crochet!! :op
I printed off a cute dishcloth pattern (from someone's blog that I can't recall anymore! Shish! I really need to bookmark) called 'The Fan Stitch' entailing all of the techniques I need to learn for my knitted items. That's right: SC, DC, and sl st....got that??? I barely do! Hahaha!
I am very slow at crocheting and haven't quite figured out a comfortable way to hold my yarn (which is hindering my rhythm)....in due time. I just need to get the basics down! LOL
So since I had some of this leftover 'Peaches & Cream' yarn (knock off of Sugar & Cream Haha!) from the Girl Scout knitting session I decided to pull this out for fun! And for my educational purposes! :p
I went to the Thursday night crochet group to get going (of course!), and take a close look at this
Guess who has figured out how to use her awesome camera!!!! JEEZAY!!!!!!!!! *jumps for joy*

I am freakin THRILLED! Worth every p.e.n.n.y.
OOh! Did you say you wanted a better peek?? :oDMMmmmuuuuuaaaaHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am absolutely luvin' this digi cam!!!! :oD

Alright so this is all I got done tonight in our crochet group! (dang DCs LOL)
Okay why it is curving like that I have NO idea! LOL I am sure it will straighten out once I have gotten thru my first repeat in the pattern.

I see you looking at my hook! ;o)

    Looking very good! And yes, it will straighten out once you get the second row on there.

    I hope I'm a bad crochet influence on you! Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it and experience new hand pains! Yea!

    WOW! Look at you! We can always use another hooker on the stroll. LOL! *ehem* Work it, girl.

    Those are some damn fine crochet skills. My very few attempts at the way of the hook have resulted in some extremely unpleasant elizabethanish collars.

    Looks good! I have found the SNB Happy Hooker book as well as the videos on nexstitch.com very helpful in my hooking quest!

    I found the most comfortable way to hold my yarn was looped over my left index finger (not woven around the fingers like they say in some books).

    I'm jealous. I need to learn to crochet. Must stop knitting long enough to make that happen.
