I can imagine!
My mom just discovered some amigurumi patterns and became intrigued because she used to crochet doilies.
(I tried to tell her about all the patterns out there, but sometimes she needs to discover things for herself.)
I think with a bit of practice you'll pick up crocheting easily enough--remember that you had a difficult time with knitting in the beginning.
Speaking of knitting though...
Today and yesterday was scarf weather and I absolutely loved wearing my Saroyan. When I first walked out the door I was like "brr, nope, today is gonna be a nasty day", then I retreated back into the house to grab my scarf and I felt invincible! I said: "ha! Cold weather? I can stand out here with my chickens ALL DAY."
