DIY- Learning to Crochet

Watch out ya'll i'm learnin to crochet! If you were to tell me I would be doing this 2 years ago I would have laughed in your face!

Ever since Bubba was born I have been interested in the style, for hats diaper covers, leggings.. etc.

Caidens 3rd birthday is coming up and I wanted to do a CARS theme this year because he is a little obsessed. When I saw this hat I wanted to make it so much!!

Fortunately for me I have an awsome friend whom I have been helping learn to sew and making cloth diapers for that agreed to teach me how to crochet so I could get some practice in. I know my mom is more than willing to show me how to do it as well and she will get her chance to help me in a few weeks when we move back to MN. But for now here are some videos I took of myself learning .. they are quite aweful but helpful for me to remember the steps and learn.. LOL

Day One.. Seriously just starting out.. LOL
Day 2..
Day 2 more..
As you can see I am getting better and faster at it.. Woot! Wonder what day 10 will look like :)
Thanks again my friend!!
I told my hubby tonight I will be a hot commodity if there is ever a apocalypse or something I can sew and now crochet us all socks and underwear.. Bahahaha.. or hats
