A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine decided to learn to crochet. It made perfect sense. She spent countless hours online looking at little baby booties, hats, headbands, etc. I thought it was a great idea, but she was braver than I was. If anything, I would know someone who could make some custom hats for me (maybe?).
However, the night she started I was reading her facebook status and comments, and I was quick to notice a theme. A lot of people were commenting how much she would love it and how easy it was once you knew what you were doing.
A couple of days went by and I couldn’t resist my curiosity any longer. After watching a few how-to videos online, I headed to town to buy the supplies I would need.
And am I ever glad I did! I love it! Sure there’s been lots of trial and error and a few curses here and there, but for the most part it’s been quite a relaxing, enjoyable new hobby.
So, with the festive season upon us, I wanted to make some holiday hats for Gavin. I’ve only done two so far, and I know I have a long ways to go, but I think they came out kinda cute:
For this stocking hat, I followed a video I found on youtube here. It was a 5 part “series” and I found it very helpful.
And, if you know me, you will not be surprised to see….
