I made a hat! It's the first thing I've ever crocheted. There are a few imperfections, but all in all, it's really good! This is the best photo I could get of it, the lighting in here is awful and I look like poop. I don't usually wear hats, but this one is gettin some publicity tomorrow!
It was super easy. I must make more! I need other colors. I wanted to make a pink one, but I didn't have any pink, and the yarn I want to use is expensive and I'm a cheap person. But next time, I will do a pink one! Instructions here: http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/my_weblog/page/10/
