Beanie Update

I finished Cameron's beanie.  He says he loves it and I should make one for everyone in the house.  I used a pattern, but improvised a little too.  I kept adding stitches and I'm not sure why.  The more I make, the more I learn.

Ear Flap Beanie

Cameron asked me to crochet him a beanie.  He is famous for his beanie wearing in the winter (and sometimes the summer).  He picked out bright green, turquoise and purple.  I started it tonight; it shouldn't take too long to finish.  It was fun picking out the yarn colors with him.

My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was about 10 years old.  Except for the few months after I learned, I haven't picked up a hook and yarn since then, until about a week ago.

I was in Fred Meyer and saw the yarn section (which I've seen a million times before) and was compelled to buy  a crochet hook and some yarn.  Since then, I haven't been able to put them down.  I've gotten so much joy and peace from just sitting and crocheting.  I've also been inspired to do something with this blog that I created three years ago.

So.  I'm going to keep creating and also write about the process here.  I'm going to take this motivation and run with it!
