My first socks!

Whew... Wow! I have finished my very first pair of crocheted socks! Hooorrraaayyyy!!!

Pattern Source: "Toe-Up Crocheted Socks"
Yarn I used: Lion Brand Yarn "Homespun". Color: #317 "Pacifica".
Hook I used: J/10 (US)

I bought this yarn for something else before, but it didn't work. Although I loved the color, this yarn was very hard to work with because its bulkiness. This time, I somehow managed to use it, and I think the yarn worked! :))) The socks feel super soft and warm. I am so very glad I made these socks, I can't wait for the winter to come! LOL Oh, I almost forgot to mention, I used picot edging on my socks. :P

I was so inspired by the socks which Chelle and Tiff are making, I decided to join Donna's "Feet Need Socks" Crochet along this morning.

Right after I put my request post to join this crochet along on Crochetville, I picked a pattern and yarn very quickly, and I kept working on my socks untill about 4:00PM. I sure enjoyed making them, and I know I will be making more. :)

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. :)
