I've only done the one thing in interlocking crochet but it was fun, in spite of the colors. I've only found the one site that has much about it and I'm not in the market to buy what she sells. I can't see why using more colors wouldn't be just fine.

It's a real test of a marriage when two knitters share one stash. Tread lightly, Sheldon!!

My wife and I have done well over the years with exception of the one time she tried to crochet my silk with some acrylic yarn.

Beautiful work Sheldon.

Amy likes to say that there is no right or wrong way when it comes to English vs. Continental. The right way is which ever way works for you. Previously, when I have knit I did do English, just because the mechanics made it easier to get the yarn through. But watching Amy speedily knitting continental and effortlessly switching between knit and purl stitches compelled me to learn continental.
Most right handed crocheters may be Continental knitters, but not sure about us lefties!! We learned to crochet left handed so hold the working yarn in our right hand. I haven't been able to convince my hands, nor my brain to try and switch!!
Congrats on your swift learning. Must be watching Amy all this time rubbed off on you.

Way to go, Sheldon! You've been Baptized!

A high quality LYS I began to frequent in 2003 was owned, operated and managed by a young married couple, Amy and Emmett Skaar. It was very encouraging to visit the shop, and there at the counter was Emmett, busily knitting away on an Elsebeth Lavold Viking Knits pullover, using beautiful stitch markers on the row!

The LYS experience was made richer by the participation of a man!

Welcome to our world, Sheldon!
