I'm home at last

We flew from Osaka to Tokyo, Tokyo to Dallas, and finally from Dallas to Jackson, Mississippi. The total flying time was approximately 15 hrs. It felt so strange, we never saw darkness during the trip, and we left Japan in the morning and arrived to MS around noon. LOL I tried to entertain my 3-yr-old as much as I could during the trip so I only got a small crochet project done, which I am going to put on my next post.

It has been a week since I came back to Mississippi, and I have overcome jet lag. I had been away from here for about 19month, but things don’t seem to have changed much here in this country town. I enjoy my family, the sky, the greens, the space, the food, and my new car soooo much here! I am just extremely happy to be home.

I didn’t get much crocheting and knitting done since we have been busy meeting our family and friends, shopping, setting up my new computer, etc. My computer is still not working right, I can only stay online for about a minute then it reboots itself every time, plus the slow dial-up doesn’t help me much to produce frequent posts. I am working on those problems, and hopefully the environment on my computer will be improved by the end of next week.

A very simple skateboarder beanie

My hubby who skateboards had been asking me to make him a simple beanie.
He wanted "small stitches with thin yarn" for his beanie so I was thinking about knitting it with stockinette stitch and sportweight yarn... But I just didn't feel like knitting or using sportweight yarn so I just started crocheting it with single crochet stitches and rather thin worsted weight Caron's Simply Soft hoping that he would like it.


He didn't like it, he said he loved it and it was exactly like how he wanted it to be! :) He went to show the beanie to some of his skateboard buddies as soon as it was done, and that made me happy. :)

Check out other crocheters beanies made with this pattern on Ravelry!  
Anyways, I was relieved and thought maybe some of you may like to make one too. ;D
I used only chains and single crochet stitches.
I believe many of my visitors don't even need the pattern because it's really just basic hat pattern, and there may be similar one out t…

WIP - Tunisian crochet

Between other fun projects, I've been enjoying crocheting this Tunisian crochet piece so much!

The pattern I'm using is "Felted Entrelac Handbag" from Gourmet Crochet. Carolyn is one of my favorite crochet designers. I'm a big fan!
This one requires only a regular crochet hook because the rows are short, and it's just great.
I'm going to felt this after all the crocheting is done, and I can't wait. :) I believe I've never posted any felted project here before, but I did some felting last year, and I loved it. I think it's just perfect for bags.

This bag is such a quick project, and I'm hoping to finish it soon. :)
