I can't crochet or knit. I CAN crochet but only in a straight line. When I attempt to turn... it's all over. Never made anything but a chain. I like to think of it as a bookmarker, or a fancy string fore-to tie things, needing ya know, that need, tied. And knitting? knit2pearl1, you have to actually concentrate and that is never gonna happen. And so, I paint because I can't crochet.
