I can't do the "yarn over" all cool like everyone else in the damn world that crochets and make the hook do the work. I have to pull it with my hand. Which entirely defeats my purpose in crocheting. It looked fun and cool and fast and no, I'm some sort of special ed fiber freak. It took me MONTHS to learn to knit, and I can teach people in 2 minutes. I feel so stupid. Oh boy, I can make a chain. In a way that I don't like. That justifies the expensive book I bought, clearly.
I shouldn't be wasting my time with this, and instead, be agonizing over that Mariah sleeve.
