My name is Crystal and I'm 30 years old. Been married for 7 and we're at the "7 year itch" mark. He's off doing his thing (video games), and I'm off doing mine (watching a lot of TV and sulking).
I was going through some depression, and I thought, "This is stupid. Why am I sitting here complaining that he's not paying attention to me?" So I decided to find something that I really enjoy to occupy my "alone" time. (Eventhough he's sitting 10 feet from me.)
Anyway, I thought to myself,
"I know how to crochet, but I've always wanted to learn how to knit..." So I did a search on Google and found this website.
I tried the whole knitting thing, but it was harder than I thought.
I wanted to make some hats for family members for Christmas, so I figured, to get them done in time, I'd have to crochet them and try knitting again in the new year...
Here is the pattern I used:
And here are some pictures of the hats I've made...
All yarn is Red Heart brand, Worsted - Medium weight

I'm going to start working on another hat soon. This time I think I'll put a Pompom on the top...
Happy Holidays everyone!
