I am not a crocheter. I'm not even a knitter. I've been taught to do both, but I find it difficult and my stitches always end up so tight I can't even get a needle through them to keep going. Sigh.
Problem is, I see all these super cute things I want to make! Just look at these adorable little hats posted on Facebook by Dianne Poeschel Knapp (who I don't even know).
I soooo want to make these for my one and only little granddaughter before she's too old to humor me by wearing them.
Or how about a beautiful afghan? I'd love to make one to wrap myself in on cold evenings or to give as wedding gifts.
And I'm a scarf lover in the winter. I wear them every day. I even blogged about scarves last year. I could make myself some awesome scarves.
Anyway, I am determined to learn to crochet. If you are a crocheter, will you give me your best tips? How do I keep my stitches loose? What is an easy project to start on? What size needle is best for a beginner? Oh, so many questions!
Let me hear from you in the comments with any helpful crocheting advice you can give me. There may be a cute hat in your future...
