You did that too? Well, I was pretty well zoning in the hospital after my Heart Attack in January...with all the meds they had me on, it's a wonder I even knew my name, and which end up was up!! But, I Did that..and I've been crocheting for years!!! So, don't feel bad..try and try again! You'll eventually get it! Oh, and don't do what I did, the first time I attempted a Granny square..for pete's sake don't confuse a sc for a dc, and when it means IN the ring, don't stitch AROUND the ring...- But,that was before my Aunt Linda straightened me out, and got me on the right road...- No, really, it's like THIS...Until earlier, I couldn't purl, stockingnette, OR seed/Moss Stitch out of a paper bag if my life depended upon it..but, with the help of Amy's video, - watched it several times..but, I eventually got it,though...- So, don't give up or get easily discouraged!! - That,along, with just don't do a Joni like I did with the no brainer stuff I told you I Did...
( That's what my cousins and I call doing something REALLY stupid or no-brainer, or you SHOULD have known way,totally better than to do that sort of thing- "Doing a Joni"!!! )
