For far to long my desire to learn to knit or crochet has felt like a dirty little secret, but the time has come to make it happen. I want to be a man who comfortable doing what he wants!
I’m going to set myself a challenge of crocheting myself a beanie style hat for this winter and I am going to do it completely frugally…
So, why the sudden change of heart?
Well, I have just come across The Shy Lion – a guy who knits! He’s inspired me to say, ‘what the heck’, and give it a go. Its time to break down those barriers in my own head 🙂
As I have said, I want to do this frugally, so I am going to rely on the gift economy. I have already made a request through my local Freegle and StreetBank groups for yarn and crochet hooks, but need your help with instructions and a pattern for a beanie which is suitable for a beginner.
Can you offer any advice? If so, post it below 🙂
