thanks for commenting, I know cross stitch, crocheting and sewing. When I was young (maybe 12) I learned how to knit, I was just to young to appreciate how long it took to knit something and now the woman who taught me is gone, and so is my mom. I have taught most of the kids how to crochet, all but the oldest because she is left handed and I am trying to learn left handed (the German way), and have yet to master it. Funny thing is my mom was taught the German way and she wanted me to learn the American way, so if she was alive, or had taught me then no worries. Anyway even my boys can crochet, they like it...I know odd.
