Learning to Crochet

I needed a hobby, something I could do that was productive besides being online. So I seen this cute little hat I knew my daughter would love, and I wanted to make it for her. Only problem it is a crochet hat, and well I have no clue what I am doing. So off to Walmart I went, I purchased some yarn, some yarn needles, and some crochet hooks. I come home took to YouTube and by the end of the day I was doing chain stitch and a single stitch. I have so many other stitches to learn, but I want to master one before moving on to the other.

I decided I would make my daughter a scarf. I took this thing out so many times, I do still have it to tight in a few spots but over all I think it turned out rather nice.

I had a lot of fun making this and now I will be finding other fun things to make. The big project is the hello kitty hat but I want to make sure I am good at all the stitches needed before I take that plunge.

I also need to see if I can find some good yarn on sale. I would like to do a stock pile some of all colors, and slowly make a blanket for my bed.

Do you crochet? What is some things you like about knitting/crocheting? I like that is relaxes me and I can say I have accomplished something.
