Ok......this has been bothering me for a long time. And it came to light when I started crocheting. My ex-boss told me I was crocheting wrong. That the way I held my hook was not correct.
I took offense to that. Why? Because in the book 'I Taught Myself To Crochet' it showed two different methods for holding your hook. You can either hold it like a pencil (which is old school method), or you can hold it like a knife.
So you know how I hold my hooks right? Supposedly the 'wrong' way. And in my defense, I have tried the 'correct' way to hold my hook. How awkward. And I tried for a while too. Until I got tired of going slow. I can do it the right way but I'm too slow at it. The reason I tried it in the first place was because it was bothering me, and my fingers and wrist were bothering me and I wondered if hooking the other way would relieve the pressure and pain. Which to my surprise, it did.
So my question to ya'll - how many of you hook the pencil way, and how many of you hook the knife way? I'm really anxious to see what the numbers are on this. I haven't seen anyplace where there was some kind of poll on this. Aren't you curious about this like I am?
I don't have anything to show you today....crochet wise that is. I do want to show you a house that I have loved since I moved to GA. The Red Tips are bloomed and they are so pretty. I don't know exactly when this house was built but I'm guessing early 1800's since the town was incorporated in 1887. On this same road inside the city limits there are at least 10 houses that were built in the same period that are just gorgeous. I love these old houses with the wrap around porches and large bay windows in the parlor. Especially when the bay windows are on the bottom and 2nd floor stacked. I love that look.
I hope you have a wonderful Friday Eve.
