Crochet FO - first ever!

I sorta vaguely knew how to crochet before. But when I saw a pattern for a magnetic katamari, I knew I needed to learn.

Here it is! Magnetically doing its job. I can't collect enough junk to make a star, but perhaps Joann should carry larger magnets... I think it's destined to hold paper clips on my desk or something.

But having learned to properly crochet from a pattern, I feel like a new world has opened up to me; there are a couple patterns out there I've been wanting to tackle, and now it seems possible!

Wow, that's so cool! Congrats on learning to crochet, I mean to learn myself. It just feels so weird to have yarn in my hands and be clueless, you know?

Your Katamari looks great! You're off to a great start. I've always liked crochet - even though it uses more yarn, it feels faster to me for some reason.

This is pretty much the coolest thing ever.
