I was finally able to complete a crochet project (more affectionately known around here as crotch-et). I think it was about 5 yrs ago when I first saw the most adorable blanket in a Martha Stewart Baby magazine which got me started crocheting. I should say it got me started on buying yarn and crochet needles. It turned out to be harder than I expected. Last year I made the girls some scarves (so I guess those were my first completed projects) which are easy enough but I have been trying for nearly a year now (off and on) to try and do a hat. I was having a TERRIBLE time getting the ring figured out--which basically starts the hat--so I would get nowhere. Finally after 2 consecutive days of trying, I got it. And here is the finished hat.

I feel an explanation of the colors is in order--as I said I was having a hard time getting the ring right so I finally started using the brown yarn because I was tired of wasting my other prettier yarn. Go figure, the one that finally works is with the brown. So I added the blue which seems to be in vogue these days and am going to send it to my brother for his newish born son. Oh and it is suppose to roll at the bottom, part of the design :)
Tug now has an order in for scarlet and grey ones for the kids.

4 people are laughing with me:

I think she kind of looks scared in the first pix. But great job on the hat.
