My first crocheted hat

Hi everyone.

As I mentioned last week I'm attempting to learn to crochet, along with my best friend Susie...we're certainly having a laugh! Well after a couple of attempts using a different pattern I finally realised I had the wrong wool for the pattern I was trying to follow. It was supposed to be a Bucket Hat but was more of a dustbin hat by the time I'd got 2/3 of the way through, lol. It was enormous!

I changed the pattern I was using and within 2 days I had this!

Please excuse the photo. I don't take a good selfie, partly cos my face is in it, lol. I'm really chuffed with this, I never thought I'd be able to do it.

Susie bought me a kit to make a little dog too. I've christened him Stumpy...

I'm currently trying to make an elephant. I'm waiting for the postman to deliver my stuffing before I carry on but I couldn't stop laughing when I looked at my work in progress...I'm saying nothing but I'll show you a piccie...

Honestly it's an elephant!!

Anyway, I'd better go do some housework so I can crochet when the postman's been. It's really addictive. Any crochet tips would be gratefully received. Thanks for looking. See you again soon.

Hugs Helen xx
