Wow! Aren't you talented!!! My mom tried more times than I can count to teach me to knit and/or crochet. She finally gave it up as a bad job. "Fumble fingers" doesn't even *begin* to describe me trying to do these things!
I bet if you were nearby, I could teach you how to crochet and maybe even how to knit. Do you type with all your fingers or are you a hunt-and-peck sort of gal? If the former, I bet you have the dexterity to master knitting and crochet.
