Crazy for Crochet

I have been wanting to learn how to make these cute headbands with a flower that are the latest rage. Well my good neighbor and friend Ashley taught me how, and ever since I have been on an a crocheting rampage!
For starters, I am on the committee for the Dance Line gift for the State Comp. I had the crazy idea to make them for the girls. 24 girls + 3 coaches = 27 headbands! Am I crazy? Yes! but actually it was quite fun and I found it very enjoyable.... not to mention it is a very showy and yet cheap gift. (They cost about $2.00 ea)
When I finished, I was still in a crocheting mood~ so I made a sweater for our puppy Majai,
and another kind of headband. Mckena wore it to school, and called me and asked if I would make some of her friends one and how much I would charge. I said "sure for $1.00" . Well she came home with an order of 17! (Maybe I should have charged more...jk)

The DL girls will get theirsFri morning before heading to State. I will take a picture with them wearing them. I hope they like them.

I LOVE THESE!! I just spent $15 on a hat at quilted bear! So you definitely should charge more than $1 for them. The Dance line will absolutely love them! Cute gift idea! Ok, so now for the favor.....will you teach me?!! I have a quilt my Mom never finished, and I'd love to finish it. I'll take you to Park City and put you in a real nice place if you will! :) Good luck with State!

Good Job! I sometimes I wish I had girls to knit and crochet for. But all the babies in our neighborhood have really cute hats, socks and sweaters!
