Yay, I finally actually completed a crochet project! Smiley No pattern, and I charted the letters out myself so I'm pretty proud.
Did the first two over the weekend and the second two yeterday.

The pictures of the first two are awful. You'll have to excuse the quality (and color issues) of my camera phone since it's all I have for now. Tongue

These are actually vibrant orange and purple. I dyed the yarn myself. Clemson colors for the boy (this shows extra love, me being a Carolina fan and all Wink )...



These are my mom's initials for mother's day.

In progress:


Excuse the mess...



This one is my favorite Smiley

Nice job!  Your letters look great!

Thanks! Smiley This was my first project of any sort changing colors within a row or charting anything out. I've been knitting for about 7 months but I've only done color changes at the end of a row. I was surprised how easy it is to do in crochet. It may have given me the little boost I need to attempt a little simple intarsia or fair isle in my next knitting project!
But first I want to learn to crochet rounds and finish the lace projects I have going.

Good job.   I have been crocheting for a few years...I have absolutely no idea how to knit though.....they look very well done.  Good job at figuring things out for yourself without a pattern
