Crochet Glossary

I self-taught myself crochet, or, rather, my Grandmother taught me the basics of crochet when I was about 7, and I completely forgot them.  When she passed a few years ago, she left me her crochet hooks.  I have made an effort since then to relearn the skill on my own.  I am arguably a crochet novice, but I have come to enjoy the craft and I think that I have an okay grasp on the basics.
