The kit helps a lot! I knew nothing before. It doesn't help so much with how to read actual crochet patterns with all the abbreviations and all that, but with good concise directions on all the basic stitches and techniques it has been great!

I think you may have just inspired me to learn to crochet.

But first I need to finish my endless list of knitting items, else I should never finish them.

But seeing that flower gave me endless design possibilities. great job!

Looks awesome!

There are lots of wonderful things you can do with crochet and for ages I only ever knew double crochet.

I hope you have fun! Just think of all the fun things you can do with yarn now!

Good job! That flower is so pretty!

I have tried crocheting, but my tension is always way off! (One stitch too tight, the next too loose!)
