Be sure to read about the giveaways I’ve entered, at the end of this post.
Recently, Ann, of the Bella Crochet blog, had a post discussing how people hold their yarn or thread when they are crocheting. I do it differently than Ann and thought I’d share a photo of my hand, just like she did. It would be interesting to see how others do it.
I learned to knit and crochet from my grandmother when I was about six or seven years old. I am right handed and I hold it the same for crocheting and for knitting. Some people may do it differently for each.
I recently saw a video on youtube that, if I remember correctly, showed this way of holding the yarn and holding the needle(s) the same way that I do. The demonstrator said that this puts the least stress on the hands and fingers of all the different methods. Unfortunately, I didn’t save that youtube URL and there are so many knitting videos on youtube!
I’ve also entered a few giveaways today. Here’s the details on them:
QuiltingB29’ Quilt Life is having a giveaway to celebrate her 100th post. She’s giving away eight fat quarters, a book by Marti Michell and a Quilt Journal. Go on over and enter!
Kim of Bitty Bits and Pieces is giving away a Charmed Gift Bag like the one she made for her newest moda bake shop tutorial. I have to make some of these bags! If you follow her so very organized point system, you can have up to 22 chances to win!
