Hi everyone! My name is Melanie. I've been crocheting off and on for about 10 years. 10 years and really, all I ever made was blankets. I love the way sweaters look and there are SO other many things to crochet, but in the end I always went with a blanket. I just started making hats because a male friend of mine asked if I would teach him how to make one. I have never told anyone no when they asked me to teach them to crochet but now someone is asking me to teach them something I didn't even know how to do! To top it off it's a MALE and we gotta get more males "hookin". So I found a hat pattern, made a hat and then taught him. He went home and taught 3 of HIS friends all MALE! Ohh to only have been a fly on the wall that night!
Since then I got another friend of mine making hats now which is GREAT! Not only was she like me (only ever made blankets) she REFUSED to learn how to do even a single crochet! (yeah she's a bit screwy in the head but I'm pretty sure all yarn people are)
Before I got I'll explain the blanket. It was made about a year ago. I had seen a baby blanket in a pattern kind of like this in a pattern book. I did more of a granny square for this instead of the pattern in the book but the same basic look is there.
Sorry I haven't figured out how to do that fancy "pictures behind the link" stuff yet. I'm not so good on computers! Thanks for reading. I love checking out all of the posts, everything is so beautiful!
