Another Hobby!

Like I really have the time to be starting something else!!

I think I do this so...no, I know I keep starting new things because I get tired of taking care of things here at the house ALL of the time.

Now, don't take this the wrong way! I LOVE staying at home. I didn't get to stay home this much with the older 2 girls, so I am BIG TIME LOVING being here with the 2 younger ones. Plus, I'm not very good at keeping a job. I get bored too easy with jobs, hence the reason I think for all the 'new hobbies' I always try!!
Now for my newest 'time-waster'.......drumroll please.......rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....
I used some of my Christmas money and bought the little beginners book, a pack of crochet hooks, some yarn and even a little basket to keep it all in.
Now, I didn't just start this on a complete whim. I remeber when I was probably T's age and my mom would crochet little doilies and such. All I was taught to do at the time was 'chain' and when it got long enough I would rip it apart and start over. My mother didn't have the patience to teach me and I think that's why it is so hard for me to teach my girls things like that!! It comes from my mother!! (Good thing I didn't pay a therapist for that session!!)
So I started with a simple hat. So it says. Simple my hind end. If you have no clue what you are doing, it. is. not. simple!!!
I started last Thursday. Didn't look hot. ripped it apart. Started again Friday. Ripped it apart. Started again Saturday. Now it was starting to look like it should!! Yippee!! I finally finished it Sunday evening.
I even had a model to wear it!!!

We had to take several pictures though, he wouldn't smile for me and they kept looking like 'mug shots'!!! I didn't want America's Most Wanted to identify him on my blog!!!

It's actually funny how much he enjoyed wearing this!! He kept it on all evening!!

I think he looks kind of cute in pink!!! Is that wrong for me to feel that way???

Just asking!!
