I Understand. . .
Leonard and I have a lot in common - trying to learn something that is beyond our grasp. For Leonard, it is knitting; for me, crochet. I enrolled a class and completed the assigned "homework" ; however, the instructor cancelled the second session and eventually the third session was cancelled, too. It was probably for the best, as the hook just did not "fit" my hand like knitting needles.
After that experience, I added a single crochet to a hand-knit hat. Working with the awkward hook took me several hours - much too long to make me even hopeful that I will master the skill. I'm sure a child could have finished in less than half the time it took me to add the edge. I may attempt crocheting again, but today, I understand Leonard.
What skill has you baffled?
