I started this project as a hat for myself. I got a new haircut, short on one side and long on the other side, I just absolutely love it! But all my hats from last winter don(tm)t have the Oh La La factor now with my new haircut, so I needed something else! I was always curious in how to work a stitch like the popcorn stitch or the bobble stitch in a hat. It took me awhile to figure out how to get a nice circular shape instead of a haxagon or a what-a-gon. I think I had to start over at least 12 times, before I had a nice shape.
There is probably an easier way, but hey.. I(tm)m stubborn.. I wanted to figure it out myself! And learned a lot!

So I needed a hobby and I discovered I had a hidden talent in Crochet. I like to design and to make new things. I'm not good at repeating projects. Once a project is finished, I'm ready to move on to the next. That's why you would mostly see patterns in my shop instead of finished items.
