Flashback Friday- First Crochet

This was actually my VERY first crochet project.  We were living in Japan in 2003.  We'd been there for 6 months and I hadn't brought any crafts with me (knowing we wouldn't have much space in our Japanese apartment).  My mother in law was mailing our Christmas gifts to us and I mentioned I wanted to learn to crochet so she sent me some beginner's stuff! This was actually just a few days after Christmas and the first thing I made was this hat!  This is my oldest B. when she was 2 1/2~

They had beautiful yarn in Japan and I ended up making quite a few hats during the next month.  Then I discovered thread crochet...  That's a post for Next Friday!
