Well- looking at the board and all the crazy things craftsters are crocheting I feel a bit embarrased posting these simple things.
I hope to become as good as you guys one day!

First thing I ever crocheted: A scarf. I love the colour of this yarn...I got it in Argentina. (=yarn heaven, I wish I had brought more; but I'm asking my family there to bring some over at christmas!) The red and yellow yarn is also from there.



Beanies, that's what I call 'em:




This one turned out odd, something between half a beanie and a beret. Also, this red is so intense in real life.


What I call an odd shape, yes.

They all look so professional for your first FOs, great job. I like the beanies, the stripe around the bottom is a nice touch. Congrats on learning how to crochet in the round already as well!

Thank you! I have to thank my argentinian cousin (yes, a boy!) for being very patient with me and teaching me how to crochet in the round when I visited him. I was a slow learner, but I managed. He's pretty close to the ideal man: young, handsome, and knits and crochets!

Cute! Turned out way better than my first crochet projects!

I think you have a very bright Craftster modeling career ahead of you as well. Wink

Wow!  I especially like the red hat.  Like another poster said my first crochet project wasn't even close to yours.  Great job.
