New adventure in crochet land.

My First Ever Crochet Creation.

This is the first thing I have ever crochet.
I'm so proud of myself.
So, though I have been neglecting my shop and my blog and my house, I have been learning new skills.  
I have also been spending time with my son.  I had realized that even though I'm a stay at home mom I wasn't spending enough time with him, I was so busy doing everything else that I was really missing out on him.
Anyway, So, now after he goes to bed or on the occasional nap he takes I attempt to teach myself knitting and crochet.  This hat is by far the coolest thing I have made to date.
This on is not for sale and will not be.  I have already given it to my mom. Well, sort of, I still have to ship it to her. She lives 3ooo km away.
I will still being doing "fine art" but I realize that if I want creating to be a full time gig. I have to find something that people want.
Right now, I still don't know what that is, but I plan on amassing as many skills as I can until I decide what it is that I want to put out there in to the world.
For now, I will share that journey with you and hopefully you and I can learn a little bit together.

* note-- the pattern for the hat came from the threadbanger website and the pattern for the flowers were found on youtube.

  3. Try watching crochet videos online. you can watch over and over as many time as you want. SOme go really slow so you can see every move they make which is really helpful. And If you don't like how it is going rip it out and start again until you are happy.
