Above is the small project I mentioned before. This simple coaster will always remind me of the day when I came back to Mississippi. :)

I finally got my computer to work right last night. :) I am soooo glad that I will be able to post regulary again like before and to visit other blogs of fellow crocheters and knitters. I missed way too much! :(

While I was working on my computer, I put an order for yarn to make "63 Easy-To-Crochet Pattern Stitches Heirloom Afghan", and of course, I joined Donna's "63 Square Crochet Along".

63 Squares Crochet Along


The yarn has not arrived yet, but as soon as I get it, I will post a picture here. ;) I can't wait to start crocheting the afghan. :)

Although it's going slowly, I have been working on my WIP "best vest", and I am not stopping. LOL

Below is a picture of a crocheted "DOG" which I made 2 years ago for Akira. I have to emphasize it is a "DOG" because most people who saw it thought it was a monkey. LOL The pattern was from a book I used to have, and the designer was a Japanese. I gave the book to my sister before I left Japan.

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. :)
