Picked up Happy Hooker and a crochet hook yesterday.

Book: ‘Crochet is easier than knitting.’
one hour later
‘Book’s a damn liar.’
finally get the first row done
‘This is like a double-loop thing for every stitch how is it easier.’
one row later
‘Hey actually this isn’t so bad after all.’
three rows later
‘Wait why do I only have half as many stitches as I started out with.’
‘…book’s a damn liar.’

I do seem to be somewhat getting the hang of it now, or at any rate I managed to make a little SC swatch with all the stitches it’s supposed to have. Sooo… progress.
