I'm often surprised at how many people will say to me, "you must be so patient!"
This is usually from a non-crafter to (me) a crafter. The truth is though, I am absolutely not. I have very little patience, so I guess it's not a necessary ingredient to being creative, or sewing, or crochet.
Determined is probably a better word, when I think about how long it took me to master the simple act of creating a chain in crochet. A couple of hours, one afternoon. The desire to crochet must have been extraordinary because I vividly remember the process and it wasn't an enjoyable one. Still, once I mastered it, I went on to create a few granny squares and found I really enjoyed having such a portable craft!
So if you think you can't, then give it a try. And if you think you aren't patient, still give it a try.
My crochet skills are a combination of in person teaching, online tutorials and the last method I've found perfect for instant, easy learning - Youtube of all things!
