What Savanah's Crocheting...

Well, I have made zero, zilch, nada progress towards my 2011 goal of learning to read a crochet pattern, but guess what? I think I've mastered the scarf!

I've gotten questions about what videos I've used to teach myself to crochet so I thought I would post them here in case anyone else is wanting to do the same thing.

This is the video I used to learn how to crochet the flowers.

These are the video tutorials I used to make a scarf. She will take you step by step in separate videos.

These are the video tutorials I used to make the beanie. Same thing as above, it's a series of videos.

And, here are a few things I've been working on...

This started out as "practice" but turned into a scarf. That's why it's not as wide as I would have liked. Once I started working on it, I decided that my mom would love these colors so I am going to give it to her.

And this is a scarf I'm working on for my sister. I watched another video on how to connect a new color of yarn and I tried it out for the first time on this scarf. I know any "professional crocheter" if that is such a word, would say never knot them like I did, but I'm not a professional. I'm not selling these or anything. So, once I'm done, I'll get rid of all those extra strings and knots somehow. I'm pleased with how this has turned out so far. It's got a ways to go, and I plan on adding gray and blue fringe to the ends like the first picture.

And you know you're starting to get in to this "hobby" when you have to go buy a basket just for all your crocheting supplies...

I have a new nickname of "grandma" in my house...

Apparently John thinks only old people crochet. :)

PS: I love this aghan... Hopefully I can make something like this before the year is over.
