Beginning Crochet

My friend Aidalys is a gifted crafter. After seeing some of the scarfs she had made, I told her I wanted to learn to crochet like her. Plus, I could always use another hobby! So, with her advice, I went to wal mart on Friday and bought a basic 4.5mm crochet needle and some $2.97 yarn. So, $5 total. 

Friday afternoon, I sat in front of YouTube videos on the computer and made these lovely things...

Attempt 1: scrap piece

Attempt 2: asymmetrical washcloth 

Attempt 3: early stages of a scarf??

Then Saturday, I had a package from Arizona in the mail... From Aidalys! 

Will y'all just look at the scarf and headband Aidalys made for me?!?

That girl is seriously talented. 

Meanwhile, I will continue to work on making straight lines and aspire to crochet something this gorgeous one day! :)
