Still waiting for my yarn

My yarn for the 63 square afghan crochet along has not arrived yet. :( It has been more than 2 wks! I should have known better when I ordered it on the Internet.

I am still working on the doily. I usually make only small things, and this doily is going to be the largest thread crochet project I have done. I am on the last row making many many sc stitches and picots. :) Today I have to go see my doctor, but hopefully I won't get too tired and will be able to finish up this doily today.

I finally joined the Crochet Guild of America! Yaaayyy!

Recently, I have been trying to find other local crocheters, but so far I had no luck. I want my crochet buddies so badly to get together regulary and enjoy crocheting, chatting, and some good coffee. ;) When I did the Google search on Mississippi crocheters, who had to come up? ME and I did not see anyone else. :( There must be somebody who crochet or knit in this state! I was happy to see the link to my blog on Google search result though... I had to call my hubby loud to show him. LOL Anyways, I hope one day, somebody will find me and ask me to crochet together... :)

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.

Result?

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. :)
