my bland and mostly dull life with knitting thrown in for interest

crochet hurts!

I have been crocheting my first ALL crochet project the last few days and I have to tell you - crochet hurts! I know it's all in the way I'm holding the yarn. I can't seem to help it. I hold the yarn the same way when I knit - but with my right hand - and it has gotten so used to it that it doesn't even phase me anymore. My left make that left pointer finger is killing me! I've been trying other methods of holding the yarn with good tension - but without me even realizing it - I go back to using my pointer as a vice and WHAALAA - sore finger.

I do like the bag I'm kni....I mean, crocheting. It's the Crocheted Eco-Friendly Carryall. I'm huge into using my own bags when I shop and love this one because I can scrunch it up into another bag until I need it.

I love it! I have one that fits in my purse, but the others I keep in the car so that I always have them with me when I go shopping. Unfortunately, I often forget to bring them into the store. I'm going to have to make some of these.
Don't you love it when you ask the bagger to use your reusable bags and when you're busy unloading the cart, he lines your bags with plastic bags? ARRRRRRRRRGH!
