When I was little, my mother showed me how to crochet. I don't remember making anything though. I had trouble holding the hook and yarn at the same time.
Decades later (2021), I decided to try again. I would try to do a consistent chain and have trouble. I found a video about making a rug using your fingers instead of a hook, and proceeded to learn the stitches that way.
I somehow managed to get enough practice with the tension on the yarn so I could do multiple stitches in a row, and now I don't have a problem.
Here is the majority of what I've made (new ones added after publishing this).
