Hooray! I finished my first crochet project!
Actually that may be a little misleading. I’m not counting anything I started as “practice” or the things that I started and then proceeded to pull out because I made a mistake. I did try working the slipper pattern I purchased, but I kept getting lost with all the counting. My friend Wendy encouraged me to just try to eyeball something and helped me get this hat started. Whaddaya know? I found eyeballing it much easier than trying to follow a pattern. So thanks to Wendy, I now have a finished hat. And by some miracle, it fits my head!
I’ve decided I like to do crochet (even though Hubby declared I look like a grandma when I’m doing it). It’s quiet and portable. I can do it while watching TV, riding in the car or waiting for the kids’ gymnastics class to finish. Next up, a hat for each of the kids…maybe then I’ll tackle that slipper pattern again.
