I Learned How To Crochet My First Hat

As I reflect back on this previous week, what has made me happy is the fact that I have learned how to crochet. My grandmother crocheted beautiful doilies. Then, my mother learned how to crochet granny squares. She made plenty of blankets. So, I have been interested in learning to crochet over the years. I have tried miserably to teach myself. I had no luck doing that.Then, my neighbor tried to help me. That failed miserably. So, when my local, community college offered a class on "Learning to Crochet," I jumped at the opportunity.

I started the classes back in February and last week I successfully completed my first project. I read a pattern and completed a slouchy hat.

I was practicing a stitch called the double crochet. With that practice strip, I created a short scarf. I added some decorative buttons and called it good.

I found a pattern in a baby blanket crochet book that I want to make. When I leafed through the book, I found a few patterns that I am interested in recreating. So, at this moment, I am working on this baby blanket for practice. 

For me, I have found crocheting to be relaxing. Even when I was not happy with my results and pulling it apart, I did not become stressed and frazzled. I just started over.

So that is what has made me happy this week. What made you happy this week?
