Jul. 30th, 2009 @ 11:40 pm wondering if anyone could help...
hi everyone. I'm not sure if this is allowed, so if it's not, i'm very sorry and just delete this. =)

i have a friend from high school who is 25 and facing a horrible situation- being a single, unemployed mom with ovarian cancer. She wants to learn to crochet as a way to get her mind off things and think about something else for a little while. I want to give her somethings to get her started. I have a little yarn, but not much and no extra hooks or a how-to booklet. I'm hoping to get together a hook for each type of yarn (f or g for lightweight, i for worsted and a k for bulky), some super saver or sugar n cream, and a little "learn to crochet" booklet of some sort.

if anyone can help, i'll make you a set of 4 stitch markers for your time and kindness. Just comment on my journal (there's a similar post there) with your email address and i'll get with you. Thank you, thank you, thank you! =)

I learned to crochet from the book 10-20-30 minute crochet. You can find it on Amazon if you can't find it locally. I got mine at Wal-Mart. I am not a book learner at all but I got it really easily from this book.

I think that http://www.lionbrand.com/ also has some on-line tutorials as well.
