“If more people knitted and crocheted, the world would see fewer wars and a whole lot less road rage.” -Lily Chin

I've taken up a new hobby: crocheting.  I'm really enjoying it.  It's fun to create something while not making (too much) of a mess. I used these tutorials to teach me the basics and then I started going!
I've mostly been making things for little heads, because they are cuter.

Here are my first creations:

This is a little headband I made, as modeled by my adorable niece.  I found the pattern for this one here.

These two hats were made using this pattern and the flowers were made using this one.  I had trouble getting the size right at first so the very first one is for a baby doll (with a very small head :-P), but the second one turned out just right.

This one is my very favourite.  I found the pattern for this one here.  It's so stinking cute.  I can't wait to see it on Dana's baby boy tonight.

I'll probably keep posting my creations here.  I think my next project is either to make Stephen a hat or to try making a blanket.  We'll see.


  1. I'm so impressed! Maybe one day you can teach me your talent. I think it is so neat that you just taught yourself! Amazing!!

  2. Those are all super cute. You should be proud of your accomplishments!

  3. I need you to teach me that stuff. Thanks.

  4. Great job! They turned out super. You must have quite the creative streak!
