Charlotte: Thank you very much for the help. The two stitches you mentioned, single crochet and shell stitch, don't look too hard. I did learn to crochet a few years ago, but I never really got the hang of it. I can remember double crochet, and I believe single crochet.
GrumpyGramma: If you wouldn't mind linking to some good crochet videos, that would be great!
"Who shall find a valiant woman? far and from the uttermost coasts is the price of her...she will render him good, and not evil, all the days of her life. She hath sought wool and flax, and hath wrought by the counsel of her hands...her fingers have taken hold of the spindle. Favor is deceitful and beauty is vain: the woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised." ~Proverbs 31
