I like the cobweb scarf , but the others are just too busy for me.

@DGITCrochet I started to crochet when I was 10 years old because my best friend at the time (same age) used to do it with her mum and I asked them to teach me. I've never forgotten them for that kindness. I was never close enough geographically to my grand mothers and I don't know if they crocheted at all.

@bentonsa I agree. I've tried knitting, but couldn't get on with it and didn't enjoy it as much as crocheting, so I'm sticking with what I know and love best! Thank you for this post.

When I suggested starting a crocheting club for the young boys in our school, the Textiles teacher laughed! I was hurt at this, as I was one of those who helped her get the job to teach textiles to the boys in the first place. I almost regretted that instantly. How insensitive!

I love seeing other people's patterns and finished projects. I also find it very helpful when crocheters film or show step-by-step patterns or difficult or unusual stitches or working with unusual yarn. It's great to see the great talent an imagination out there, which always inspires me to try out new things and challenge myself. If you think that what you know will help others, then include it in your blog.

@CrochetBlogger@momwithahook I didn't mean that this relative demanded I crocheted something for her. I offered to do a scarf for her, but then she said she would rather have a shawl and then started making amendments to pattern and finally asking for the remainder of the wool left so that she could add to it when I gave it to her. I felt really insulted and I still feel bitter about it, but I've learned my lesson. I appreciate your comments: it makes me realize she was in the wrong.

@undergroundcrafter Thank you for your empathy and for the suggestion to join 'Selfish Knitters'. I might just do that! Happy crafting!

I am very happy to crochet for charity, but I resent the fact that I never found out if the intended charity (Kaps for Kendall in Denver) received my 10 hats I sent in November. It cost me £10 in P&P plus all the yarn and my time, but my parcel was never acknowledged even though I'd sent an e-mail confirming date of shipment and asked them to acknowledge receipt. I worry that they never got it or that it might have been intercepted.

I also regret offering to crochet an item for a relative, only for her to e-mail me dictating to change the pattern and requesting for me to send her any wool left over in case she needed to add to it! I found this most ungrateful and rude and it put me off telling beforehand what I am going to make. I'll make things and keep them as surprise till the last minute in order to avoid demands of that sort! Unbelievable.
