Hi Mikey, I am new to your site but hope you can help. I have crocheted 2 Spidey Man hats for my grandsons and I can not get the eyes right. I want them to be oval but I can't get the pattern right. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Derinda

Being from the UK I have never heard of this man, but regardless of who he is, I found it very offensive to read his words in my Hooked on Crochet email today: "Being only one year old, I was the only baby not to go spastic and cry on stage." What is wrong with you people?!!
