Hi,

Just giving a try on a crochet hat today. I love the 30's, 40's style so that's what I will go for!
My first hat, if you don't count a beanie as one...
Have you ever tried making a hat?

Shame, your hands ache... Mine do as well but only when I use a 8 mm, 10 mm hook.

So my hat is finished! And I am quite pleased with the result :)
Think I need a brooch or some feathers for the final touch.

I will post pictures on my blog later. I would love to hear your opinion.

Have you got those pictures yet?! I'm really interested in seeing the hat! I love the 20s, 30s, 40s fashions and I crochet - currently making a jumper - I'm half way through. Is it your own design or have you followed a pattern?

I can't wait to see your pictures!

I too am new addict to crochet. I'm currently making my second bag and can't wait to finish work so I can carry on with it :D

Sorry about the pictures... I am still trying to take good shots of the hat.
It's quite difficult as I don't want to use myself as a model...
I will post in my blog as soon as I have them... as I can not post here yet.

Finally I managed to take a more or less decent picture of my hat.
If you want to have a look, please visit my blog.
I am still not allowed to post pictures here yet...

Looking forward to your opinion!

I learned from researching on the internet! There are some wonderful websites with tutorials and videos.
It's a bit difficult in the beginning but once you get hold of it, everything gets much easier.

Thank you!
And I love your shop! I really like the clutch bags with the crochet handle. They are really nice! :)
