I stink...
At crochet. :-/

I've been trying to get past a basic granny square for over a year. Every time I try to hook a single crochet etc blanket, it goes wrong, wrong....wrong.

It looks...ugly. it starts to curl and the edges look weird. :-(

I can chain, single crochet, make a shell...I have a couple of books with amazing, beautiful squares etc I want to make but... I'm not that advanced. *sigh*

I've not crocheted for a couple years now but as I recall there does tend to be a curl to the fabric. Neater ends to rows and nicer edges comes with practice and guess what! You can add a border and hide it! I almost always added a border even if it was just sc to even things out and make it look better.
