Crochet my...

Seems lately that the largely known website "Pinterest" has been showing me nothing but Crochet projects. Must be a fad or something...

Well I thought I'd try it out.

I should have thought twice about that idea before plunging in!

I started by going to Wal-Mart and purchasing a Crochet learning kit that includes different gauges, needles, and a book with step by step guide. I took it one stitch at a time and was quick to pick up slip stitches, single stiches, double stitches... the list goes on and on...

Well then I tried a pattern and it turned out like - well - you can see above the disaster that came of my first attempt.

Well I'm not one to back down - most of my patterns are still looking like the one above; hats look like a Kippa, clothes that look like a pyramid... I am slowly getting better as I realize my problems and with the help of friends around me.

Hopefully my next post will include some more... realistic projects that actually were successful.
