Crochet Anyone?

Now, I know that I can probably find this online in 6.5 seconds, and I just might as soon as I am done posting this entry.  However, the hat that I just finished instructs me to "single crochet" around the edge in a contrasting color...now I have the contrasting color, and UPS is bringing me a big box of knitting supplies (and crochet hooks) this afternoon...but can anyone tell me (or direct me towards an priceless resource that can tell me) how I might go about this "single crochet"?  Clearly I am a crochet virgin!  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks guys!

is this a fluke?

suddenly i find myself with oodles more romantic frustration to sublimate and i'd been fawning over the picture of the mitred square afghan/blanket thingie in Mason-Dixon  knitting so i began knitting up the mitres and guess what!?! it's one of the most fun things i've done in awhile and it's forced me to pay enough attention that i am actually managing to carry the second strand of yarn up the side and keeping the carried strand 'hidden' over the course of the contrasting coloured strip about 65% of the time.  that's actually pretty darn good for me since i tend to let it all hang out since the edges are usually going to be buried into a seam, eventually.  problem is, now the hooded jumper that i'm 1/3 of the way into rests at the bottom o' the knitting bag like an accusation.  i've enough frustration to sublimate, enough ambition, but sooo very little time.

Miscellany...

Wow, what a lot of activity going on here at MWK for a guy who didn't get logged on for a few days!

First, I just wanted to add my welcome to the new members (excluding the few spammers, of course).  It's really great to see this site growing.  It does my heart good to see all of you guys who knit!

I'd love to find a knitting group in Kansas City that has at least a few guys in it.  I can only imagine that the experience would have to be different than knitting with women.  Not that I have anything against that!  Smile I just finished a sock class where I was the only guy in it and I enjoyed it very much.  If anyone from western MO, or eastern KS is out there, contact me if you're interested in getting a group going.
