I've been kind of busy trying to upload some crochet videos to YouTube, if anybody's interested in seeing what I have so far, you can go to www.youtube.com/zknitz. When I watch them, I can see where I want to change some things, but there's no way I am going back and redoing the ones that I have up so far. That's too much work.
Anyway, back to the picture above. This beret is turning out to be just like the other one, I can tell. Even though I went up on my crochet hook by about two sizes, I can tell, it's still going to be kind of "stiff". But I think I realize now what I have to do. I need to get some kind of yarn that's real thin, like sock yarn. And then use the same hook that I am using with this beret pictured above. I think it's a size "L". Anyway, that's what I think will help me, so my slouchy beret won't look and feel so stiff.
