Once upon a time, on a long drive, sitting in the passenger's seat, I attempted crocheting a hat. I could handle doing the stitches just fine, but my hat was big and lumpy, so I all but gave up... until a friend showed me that there was actually a method. Once I became good, she asked me to help her make 40 hats for a commission from the local surf shop. That's when BONEYARD BEANIES was started. I can now call myself a professional crocheter.
