The Crochet Doctor is In

I've wanted to do this blog for a long time! I am a crochet teacher, both locally, (at my lys), and nationally (at the Crochet Guild of America's conferences). Whenever I teach, whenever someone finds out that I'm a teacher, they invariably ask me a "crochet" question. "How do you get rid of the space between the turning chain and the first stitch? How do you join rounds in a Granny Square? How can you tell which is the right side and the wrong side? Why is my piece more narrow at the top than it is at the bottom, where I started? Is gauge really important? Why doesn't this pattern make sense to me? How does "ch 3" differ from "ch-3"? Or does it? Is it important to use the same yarn that the pattern calls for? It's been discontinued. What should I do?"
These are just some of the questions I plan to answer in this blog. There will be more. I am a member of a couple of on-line discussion groups, and there are always questions posted on these groups. I will try to answer them here.
But - most important! If you, my loyal readers, have any questions, please send them to me. You can email me:
or post a comment/question here.
