Also, my lovely wife has decided that I started learning to crochet with too hard a pattern. Apparently I don't even know what I don't know. So I am switching to a beginner granny square pattern, and getting personal instruction on how to do it right. First lesson: don't try to make it so tight! Hopefully, I will soon be able to crank out a granny square quickly, and can think about what to make with them (an afghan, or maybe a scarf).
