Crochet Boot Camp Day 1

Seeing as my one year ban on crochet is over, I thought it was high time to get crackin' on that whole learning a new craft thing.  Tonight seemed as good as any, especially since last night I finished my lovely Cedar Leaf Shawlette and I think my arms would fall off if tried to pick up a pair of needles to start another project.  So, I cracked my crochet book and with the aid of the mighty interwebs I was on my way. 

On the docket were the following: chain stitch, single crochet stitch, double half crochet stitch and the double crochet stitch.  I know that may sound like a lot of stitches to learn in one evening and yes I think it might have been an ambitious goal, but in the end it wasn't bad at all.  Now, I'm not saying I'm an expert or anything, far from it, but after a couple hours of practice, I'm feeling fairly comfortable with those four stitches.  I'm not really ready to follow much of a pattern or anything, but I have a feeling I could crochet one MEAN trivet or potholder...  The real key will be if I can remember the stitches tomorrow.  Now THAT would be really good!
