2.5 hours? Maybe 3. I was getting up and doing stuff to give my hand little breaks.

That's awesome! Everything that I've picked up has been the product of lots of googling/youtube searching.

Yep! I've been watching a lot of videos lately but they are difficult for me to follow because I don't understand half of what they are saying. And forget about reading a pattern haha. I'm getting it slowly!

Stick with it! I can "read" a pattern but if it's given to me in a diagram, forget it. lol Check out The Crochet Crowd on FB. They posted a multi-part tutorial on how to read patterns. Very helpful!
