I have found another hobby, as if I need a new one. One day I was looking around on Etsy.com and saw a crochet hat pattern that was really cute. I went ahead and purchased it thinking I could make it no problem. I didn’t have a clue how to crochet, but I didn’t let that stop me. My mom used to crochet years ago so she showed me a few of the basic stitches. I practiced those few stitches, when I felt confident enough I started the hat. When I got stuck I would watch You Tube videos (I Love the internet!) to figure out the problem. After three days of frustration and taking out the hat at least ten times I finally got it made! I love the way it turned out.
Since then I have made many different style headbands and a few different hats. My niece is wearing the second hat that I made (I think I only took that out 4 times, lol). She loves it. I have had a lot of fun learning this new hobby and enjoy finding new things to make.
