I will conquer crocheting!!!

I had my first crocheting class tonight. I struggled through the whole thing. I just about cried at the begining. I had a rough day so having an hour of almost constant failure got to me.

The teacher was really nice and helpful, even kind enough to say I was getting the hand of it at the end. I drew a line on my hand to help me hold the yarn the right way around my left hand thumb. She thought it was a clever way of ensuring I would grasp it correctly. I felt like the quite kid in the corner who was supposed to glue the Popsicle stick to the paper but glued it to her face in the end.

In the end I sorta completed a granny square.

My homework for next Thursday is to pick a pattern I want to do and get the supplies. Suggestions?
