I have however gotten completely side tracked (as usual haha!) by a cute, cute hat! I saw a picture of a baby wearing a crocheted sun hat and just HAD to make one.
Slight problem though- I can't crochet!! So I spent 2 evening glued to youtube watching how to videos. Once I thought I had the hang of it I went in search for a (free) Sun hat pattern. The search lead me here to a fantastic blog http://mymerrymessylife.com/ with some real lovely ideas! I chose to do the Granny Square sunhat, and I could actually do it!
So here it is, my first ever crochet project finished and modelled by my beautiful bubba
I just added a decorative chain stitch in pink around the edge and may make some crochet flowers too. I am now a massive fan of crochet! It is actually very easy once it 'clicks' and so speedy! I am now planning lots more, although my stitching will still be my main focus ;)
