I have been crocheting for many, many, many, well you get it. Long time! This is the best advice I have every heard. This needs to be included in all crochet and knitting books. Thanks so much Michael, you are great. A 65 year old grandma of 10 grand babies. Love this.....

I've been crocheting for the past 7 years and have never seen anything like this video. This advice should be first and foremost in every 'how-to' book for crocheters. Thanks Michael, you are wonderful!

You crack me up with the side commentary. 8) Very practical and common sense information here (especially stinky pits). The bowl idea for the yarn ball is brilliant because, yes, I am constantly shooing the cat away from my yarn. He ran off with my daughter's project the other day and she had to chase him down the hallway.

I love your ideas. You have hit on just about all my problems. I can never get comfortable when crocheting. I am constantly moving from legs down to on the ottoman and then to sitting cross legged in the chair. I also get tired of trying to hold up my yarn projects. I have trifocals and they are really hard to use when crocheting esp. if my Rx isn't up to date. Maybe even having a pillow in my lap would help with holding up afghans, etc. as I work on them. Thanks for more great thoughts on crocheting! Leandra

even if you think you know it all !!! there are always things I find I did not know ! Thanks for the tips and ps... I got the same couch and pillows... guess great minds think alike :)

I've found that I have to have some support under my arms at the elbows. If you crochet for long periods of time, your tendons are subjected to repetitive motions for extended periods. I have, more than once, developed tendinitis from this. That meant several weeks of healing which included abstaining from the craft. I don't want to go through that again, so I've actually started wrapping my elbow and putting pillows under the arms. It restricts my movements enough. I am not a beginner so I guess I really don't need to have that free movement. I hope my comment may help someone else that has suffered pain as a result of the craft. Whoever thought crochet could be hazardous to your health?!?!?! LOL
