I'm so excited to cross something off my 28 before 28 list!
I get to cross out #7: Learn to crochet!
I've been wanting to learn for some time and so I finally bought a book to help me learn in 2008. I was so confused and didn't understand the photos, I wanted to pull my hair out. I was able to learn how to knit from a book, why couldn't I learn how to crochet?! After awhile I felt defeated and stop trying to learn.
Now here we are in 2011 and I decided this was a good year to try again. I put it on my goal list so I could see it everyday and finally give it another go.
Husband suggested to watch a video tutorial. Why didn't I think of that in 2008?!
So I sat down with my hook and yarn on Monday and watched several tutorials on youtube. And guess what friends...
I LEARNED HOW TO CROCHET!
That little strip was my first attempt. Crocheting was fun to learn and I'm so mad I gave up so easily last time. What was I thinking?! I will admit it took a few hours to get it looking decent.
I didn't want to cross #7 off my list until I actually made something, so last night I decided to make a crochet headband.
I'm pretty happy with the end result!
