debminerva, how's the tension coming along? I expect it's getting somewhat easier for you. I really am curious about how it goes for a knitter learning to crochet, especially an English knitter, as it's opposite from me. I still can't knit English comfortably and purling English is worse. It seems to me that knitting English takes a different form of coordination that I just can't manage. I wonder if I have established "tracks" in my brain and it doesn't want to make new ones. Hopefully I'm not pre-fgrogging the sweater I'm working on... again.
