Learning to Crochet

I found this super cute hat via Facebook and asked a friend at work if she could teach me how to crochet. She said I would need a lot practice & patience before I would be able to make the hat. I agreed, but in my mind, I was hoping to have the hat done in a week. I did have a back up plan: I emailed my sister Brenda the pattern and she made the hat in a day & a half. I should receive it Saturday! ☺

Anyways, here are the results from last week's lessons (we meet M/W/F). Monday was a challenge. I got the chain down, but was talking so much, I forgot to count. Wednesday same deal. I told myself that if I wasn't better by Friday, I was quitting.
Friday came and I learned my lesson:count my stitches & listen to the others talk (talking = skipping stitches).
Progress for sure! By tomorrow, this will be a new scarf for Remy. Next week I learn a new stitch. If I get that down, I should be ready to start my hat!
