So I will admit that I'm a very ambitious crafter.
About a month ago, I decided I wanted to learn how to crochet. I bought a book and some yarn at Michaels and just got started.
I had to look up a ton of videos on YouTube to even know what I was doing, but after about 2 weeks, I got the hang of it. It took me a while to make the little guy above because no matter what videos I found, they would teach you 1 skill, but not teach you how to transition that skill to the next one so it was a ton of trial and error.
It took me a while, but I'm really happy with how he turned out in the end and am already working on my next project. :)
