Crochet Catch-Up!

I mentioned a while back that I was going to start trying to crochet.  It's been going pretty well and I've actually started making items for other people.

Here's the first ever item I made, and I'm keeping it for myself.  This blue and gray beanie is made with the single crochet stitch and I can't wait for it to actually be cold enough to wear the darn thing!  C'mon winter!

And this cowl/infinity scarf I also made for myself, learning how to hook the double crochet stitch.  I think it's a tad short, but it'll probably stretch a little over time and I really like how it turned out.  I love the two shades of gray...which might look a little funny with yet another shade of gray (my shirt).

The last items I want to share are my first-ever gifts, for a cousin.  Her favorite color is purple and when I saw this adorable yarn on clearance, I snatched it up!  I will say this yarn was a beast to work with, but I like how it looks in the finished product.  I haven't mailed this to my cousin yet, but I hope she likes it!  Both the beanie and scarf were made with the double crochet stitch.

I have to say, I'm really enjoying this.  Crocheting is something I can do while watching TV, listening to an audiobook or just all on it's own.  David watches a few TV shows that I'm not in to, but I can actually stand to be in the room now (as long as I have a project going) when he starts the DVR up with his Wheeler Dealers, Fifth Gear, Jungle Gold and Gold Rush.  Quality couple time, even when we're both doing something the other doesn't particularly care for!
