Crochet? Moi?

Okay, so I learned how to crochet last week with the insistance by a wonderful Ravelry cohort in Germany that I did not have to stay "crochet retarded". I struggled with my first swatch, but came out victorious in the second one, so I started and finished a project using single crochet-which is as far as I had gotten in teaching myself :P So I now have a nifty, slightly wonky nurse purse! Woo! I want to put picks up, but I want to block it first and haven't had time to yet.
On the WIPS, I still have to finish what was my mystery project, but is actually the devil hat from Stitch N Bitch-I already told the recipient she was getting it and she found my blog because I am dumb and linked her to it to see my weiner dog :P ha ha ha ha
Started a little more work on my dad's socks, but then I had to rip back because I was dumb again and accidentally left it inside out, so the stockinette stitch turned bumpy.
I think I am going to start a small project for a friend whose birthday was a few weeks ago. I have to mail her present to her, but I would like to include something handmade. Maybe some jewelry-that would get done quicker :P
That's about it for now, I suppose-I will try and be more interesting when I am not half asleep and blogging ;)

I do the majority of my blogging when I'm half asleep and incoherant. Good times!
