Time to learn or re-learn something new!

So as you can see from my last post I have been admiring those cute Crochet hats. Really I have been admiring a lot of handmade things, I guess maybe it is because we had about 2 weeks with lower than normal temps and we were having to wear outer wear to keep warm. That is very unusual here in Summerville. I am happy to say that it is very nice today:)

I learned how to Crochet in grade school, but only a few stitches, so I began to search the web for some guidance (lessons). There are a lot of pages out there!!! Here is one that I found with a lot of helps. I purchased a few hooks, they are not to expensive(2-3$) at Walmart or Hancocks. I already had yarn so I was ready to go.

Here are a few flowers I have learned to make from patterns on the web.

The patterns can be found here and here.

Make sure that if you have not crocheted before or in a long time, that you have more then an hour to spend on learning and experimenting on your project. Most of all enjoy the creative process!!!

Those flowers are too cute! I can't wait to see your hats too! You are really progressing on your 2009 goals!(Before Grandma Bagley got too forgetful she taught Afton how to make her baby bibs.)

Now I don't have to learn how to crochet. I can just buy the stuff you make.
