"Finally Did It!": story of a crocheted beanie...


I have been crocheting for about 2 years now but was always felt too like too much of a novice to crochet things other than scarfs...

well today I said "no more!"

I got off my butt, found a pattern, learned to read it, and went ahead and made not one but two beanies/hats Monday evening...

#1


it's pretty simple, puff ball on top...

#2



made me happy and led to an impromptu mini photo-shoot.

Short post for my mini celebration- I need to get back to work and make like 500 of these things now that I can, and perhaps figure out this whole etsy thing =)

too bad I'm gonna have to measure regular people's heads because this one's made big to fit my huge noggin...

anyone feel like being head guinea pigs?? I'll bake you cookies!!

I love it! AND I just started following you on twitter (@pinkmilk) AND where do you live?! If you ever come to The Bay Area I want to do a photo shoot with you, I specialise in Awesome/silly and a Day of The Dead shoot would be brilliant!
