Story about myself: I do have to share a story about myself, on what I did before I knew the proper method of attaching crochet edgings to cloth. I actually pierced the fabric with my crochet hook to do a single crochet foundation around the cloth. My hand was sore for days after I did that. I finally finished the rest of the edging a few days later. I bent my steel crochet hook a little bit. I was not to fond of crocheting around cloth until I learned the proper method.
