The pictures I'll load will show my progression. I gave up several times but then picked it back up and kept trying. I hold the thread differently than most because of my messed up hand but it all worked out.
Pict 1 was to just get the feel
Pict 2 was to try and keep it straight...lol
Pict 3 was me trying to make something but I couldn't figure out why my edges were messing up. Watched a video and figured out i forgot to chain at the end...lol! Glad i figured it out.
Pict 4 is finally getting everything working good and finished a project.
Three days and tons of stops and starts but finally...i finally figured it out! :)
My next challenge is to use two colors. :)

 Looks great!  I just started crocheting as well and was making a scarf and couldn't figure out what was going on, ended up I needed to count better!  Oops!  What are you making next?
