Coffee Koozie!

I learned how to crochet! Yay!
Thanks to my friends at Mountian Park Baptist Church.
Last night Julie Lewis hosted a Women's Ministry get together where she and some other experienced crocheters invited all the women to get together to crochet coffee koozies.
I had so much fun. Almost all of us were learning how to do it.
I tried my best to get it done in the time we were there, but I had to come home and finish it.
It doesn't look perfect by any means. (It barely stretches around the skinniest coffee mug I own) But it's cute and I couldn't wait to use it this morning. And besides. I'm just so happy that I've learned the basics beyond making a chain.
I have a renewed spirit in crocheting.
In fact, I can't wait to finish blogging and go do some crocheting.
In case anyone who reads my blog crochets and would like to make this koozie too here are the instructions I was given last night. If you have any questions I'll do my best to answer them or get the answer. I have no idea what to do by reading the instructions, but I might be able to remember what I actually did. Hopefully it matches up.
Supplies: 26 yds of cotton or sport weight yarn
E, F, or G crochet hook
Yarn needle
Chain until work measures approximately 11 inches and turn
Row 1: skip 1st chain and SC in each chain to the end. Chain 2, Turn your work.
