Crocheted hat that Alyssa loves (and I made)!

So I am a newly self taught crocheter. I did a little bit of crocheting on the edge of a shawl I knitted 5 years ago, but that's it. I decided to tackle a hat pattern that I thought was cute and that would look cute on my daughter. I got the pattern off the crocheting and knitting website Ravelry (Cheri Hat). For the knitters and crocheters out there, check it out! They have so many great FREE patterns!! I am so happy that this pattern turned out as good as it did, especially since it took me forever to make. I am sure that if I made another one it would only take me half as long. My daughter always wants to wear it :-) Above and below are some pictures of her and the hat.

Hello All!

So this is my first post! I have attempted a blog in the past but quit after only a few posts (I had a new baby at the time!) I have been really inspired by blogs lately and have been wanting to start my own. I think it will be fun to look back in a few years and remember all the posts and the things in them. I really want to start crafting again so you will probably see lots of posts about my crafts. I have a few and will try to get them up in the next few days.
