pexels-photo-762791.jpegI’ve always loved doing different arts and crafts projects.  I’ve tried crocheting in the past but never really stuck with it.  When my daughter was born early, we were not prepared and didn’t have anything for her yet.  My babyshower was supposed to be four days after she was born! Right away she was given the sweetest little hat and an adorable blanket, both of which were handmade.  This meant so much to me and helped bring some normalcy to the craziness that was going on.  I decided that I want to pay that feeling forward so I am teaching myself to crochet preemie hats and little blankets.  I brought my crochet supplies with me to my course this week and I have been getting some practice in while I listen to the lecture. I want to make a bunch and bring them to the hospital for my daughter’s second birthday.  So far, I have been following different YouTube tutorials, which have been so helpful!  I found a pretty easy pattern from Yarnspirations that I have been following.  I have found that I like watching the tutorials, but having the written out pattern really helps me.  You can see the first little hat I made on my instagram!  Do you have any favorite crocheting resources or patterns?  I’d love to hear about your favorite project!
