Skull Caps?

Look what I did! I crocheted my first Skull Cap! Whooohoooo! I have wanted to learn to crochet my entire life. My Mom crocheted, but she was right handed and we just couldn't figure out how to teach ME...a lefty. I tried watching her and I tried following, but I just couldn't. Instead, I made up my own. I've crocheted each of the boys a baby blanket and a few others for gifts. Then I started noticing all the cute beanie hats (aka skull caps) and thought...I've got 3 boys. I've got to learn this. So, I searched and searched and didn't find anything on the internet to teach me how to crochet left handed. I needed to SEE it. Then, I stumbled on this blog post: http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2008/07/blog-post_11.html Teresa saved the day! Then, another week passed and I started searching for beanie hats, etc. in a left-handed pattern. Guess what I found...Teresa again. She's my new hero. :) So, today I sat down determined to try it...and hour later (I was watching Oprah at the same time), this is what I had:


Anakin LOVES it and the other 2 boys want one NOW. :)

That is so awesome Keela!

I've been wanting to learn to knit but don't want to pay for lessons at local shops and I don't know anyone that can do it.

Good job! I'll pay you to make Bella one. They are soooo expensive on Etsy!

Very cool, Keela! Maybe we should start a crocheter's club in town. ;-) The skull cap is great -- getting the basics of reducing down is a huge step!
