When Dave and I were dating, I went to great lengths to cook special meals and fun things for him and his two girls. I spent hours pouring over the cookbooks and watched endless hours of cooking shows. It was difficult at first, but became increasingly easy with a little effort and study. It's the same with knitting and crochet. It will become second nature with time and you'll be so glad you didnt' give up. Look and ask for helpers, dig in and the rewards will be never ending.
