What are you most proud of? I've always wanted to learn how to crochet for many years and always wanted to make a shawl for myself but i could never find anyone who could crochet and teach me so i self taught via youtube with a wonderful lady called Teresa (tjw1963) I still cannot read a pattern proberly you coud say that i am a visual learner, i especially cannot read one from the uk since i learnt all the crochet stiches in usa, i find i get confused when i try to change it to uk, I taught my friend to crochet which i am reaaly impressed with myself since it took me months to learn myself. It is wonderful to see friends and family wearing my hats and scarfs, shawls, wrapping their baby's up in my blankets. I even made a slouch bag out of cotton string for my sister in law who just loves wearing it.

go on youtube type in crochet basket weave blankets, mikey'smail is a guy who teaches all sorts of stiches, you just modify your blanket to how you want it to look once you learn the stitch,

Viks, you have been 'very' busy and the blankets are adorable. Being self-taught myself, I can imagine how proud you are for such an accomplishment. Some of us are visual and others are aural learners. Congrats!
