I have had a very uncomfortable year. In 2009, I broke the bones in my left arm (smashed them, actually). I underwent a 4 hour operation to reset the bones, and had titanium plates installed to allow the bones to heal properly.
Then, this year, I developed an allergy to the titanium plates, and had to have them surgically removed.
Just before the operation to remove the plates, I fell when getting off a city bus! I BADLY sprained my left ankle, dislocated my left index finger and cracked a small bone in my wrist.
As you can imagine, with all this happening, I was unable to do ANY crafting.
However, now that I am well again, I plan to start doing crafts, and writing blogs.
I spotted a set of DVD's at the public library. They have a link to a TV show based web-site that provides free clips on how to knit and crochet.
The link is: www.knitandcrochetnow.com
The clips appear to be for people who already have at least the basics down for knitting and crocheting.
If I can find someone who has a working video recorder, I will make some clips showing how to do the basics.
If anyone in the Greater Vancouver area has a video recorder and would be willing to get together with me to record the stitches, please contact me to let me know.
