Crocheting A Baby Blanket

So last week I pulled out my crocheting needle and blue yarn and sat down and started crocheting. (At least I think I am- I've never done this before) Someone gave me the yarn and the two crocheting needles I have about 5 years ago and they have sat up in my closet until now because I actually have no idea what I'm doing. 

I don't even know if the stitch I'm using is a real stitch or something I just made up because it worked. LOL 

When I was 8 years old a cousin showed me how to start crocheting...the very first line and how to hook the lines together. (Yes, I'm aware I'm not using proper crocheting terminology- mostly because like I said...I have no idea what I'm doing) 

I'm trying to make a baby blanket. At least I think it's a baby blanket. This could end up being a shirt for all I know. (Not really). 

I don't think it's bad for a first timer who's had absolutely no training and taught herself how to do this in the first place. 

I'll post pictures when it's done. I have to buy some more blue yarn because I'm almost out.
