And I felt this huge draw to crochet again. I don't know, maybe I just wanted a connection to my grandmother. I ran into Walmart and found a kit for a lapghan. It was just a big granny square. It came with written directions which I figured out while riding in the car. I finished it that weekend and more yarn - and haven't been without a project since. I find it very relaxing...as long as I don't have to count many stitches LOL!

I think it would come right back if you had the chance to practice a little...
WOW! That's fantastic!

I doubt it though - it was a long time ago and I really remember nothing. Maybe I will look for one of those kits though.
