Crocheting The Night Away

Back sometime before Christmas, Sierra and I decided to try our hand at crocheting again. It was not the first time that either of us had crocheted before (Sierra is actually pretty good), but my crocheting experience was limited to when my grandma taught me at age 7 and when ChelSTD taught me at age 23 or 24 (during that fantastic 24 marathon many of us did, watching seasons 1-4 in about a month).

Anyway, enough chatter. Here are the fruits of my labor:
A potholder and a beanie. The beanie is a little large so I shall be gifting it to Jung's giftedly-large head.

In the sake of full disclosure, the beanie came out well for my first attempt, but it was by no means perfect. It has a large unsightly ridge in the center, which would be perfect for this guy's head (yes, that is will.i.am), but may not work as well for Jung's perfectly shaped dome.
