Thank you! You should absolutely learn! We have our summer in Dec/Jan/Feb and school finishes around that time too... what I did was, finished my final exam and went out straight away to buy a crochet book, spent the whole night learning how to crochet. It was such a granny way to celebrate end of exams but I do not regret it one bit. Summer's an excellent time to start too because you don't have that other life stuff getting in the way!
Wish I could but I'm from a rather isolated country (NZ) so P&P is SO expensive. Excessively expensive!! So I'd feel bad. I was thinking about making these sorts of things for adoption (just pay P&P) eventually though.
