After browsing around here for what seems like ages, I learned to crochet from my mom when I was home for the long weekend. She was hesitant about getting The Happy Hooker for me before I even touched a crochet hook but after she taught me a bit and saw that yes, I in fact could make something out of yarn that is not totally crooked, we went to Chapters to get the book and now I can't wait to crochet more! Anyway, here is my first project:

The seam is a bit unseemly (heh), I think, but maybe it'll stretch over time and not bother me as much. I love the button - just found it in my mom's little box of miscellaneous buttons. The case is also lined with white fabric in case the yarn would scratch the camera screen. I just can't believe I crocheted something so quickly. You should have seen my many tries at knitting; they're embarrassing. :/ When knitting, I have no idea what the yarn is doing - if I drop a stitch, I don't know what to do with it. In crochet, if I make a mistake, I know exactly how to fix it. I love it! I hope I get to post more with other projects, now that I have my own crochet hooks.

As an added bonus, I practised crocheting a circle and while it was perfectly round and flat, I decided to practise slip stitching around the edge which was just made it into a bowl, so I flipped it over and stuck it on my dog's head to snap a picture:

I like it! Smiley I'm new at crochet, too, and want to make a case for my camera, but I can't figure out how to do it.  Any tips/suggestions?

Congratulations on your first project! You would be surprised at how much you can crochet. After you have been crocheting for a while you might want to try knitting again. I know many people who had issues learning to knit but after learning yarn control in crochet were abel to pick up knitting with ease.
