If you are following me on twitter you know about my great idea to start crocheting baby hats, and if your not, then you should..i'm katiejo11. Well anyways, I wanted to for two reasons. First b/c I love babies in hats and secondly, because I wanted to donate some little tiny ones to the hospital I delivered Brenham at for all the wonderful things they did for us. I started off with a practice one that could be for our future baby someday. So I bought all the supplies and the yarn was even on clearance and named 'yarn bee' which is perfect b/c we call our future baby 'bee' instead of saying 'the baby' all the time, so here is the bee's hat (if its a girl) so far....
This is a nightmare, I do know how to crochet, but just in a straight line like this. I don't know how to do all the fancy stitches like half double stitch in particular and what does joining mean? I look up online tutorials and even watch videos on You.Tube but still can't get it to look right!
I haven't completely given up yet, I think I have to buy some plain yarn and not this fancy fuzzy kind. So wish me luck!! Any advice?
And speaking of how wonderful the hospital is, look what is hanging right outside the room where Brenham was delivered. it's a picture of a 'forget me not' and is framed with "In loving memory of all our babies who are now home in heaven but who are still missed in our hearts" written beneath it!
so much for 'wordless" Wednesday! i tried!
