31 squares done!

I have made 31 squares so far for 63 square CAL, and that means I am about half way done! :)))

Although the suggested hook size for the squares is H, I had to use smaller/bigger hooks for some squares to make it close to 7in X 7in.    In many cases, I used G and I, and that is more likely expected.  But!  I had to use "F" for the square #29 (Alternate Spike SC) and "J" for #30 (Eyelet Lace), which made me wonder...   "Should I use the same hook for the edging???"   

For the edgings of the first 28 squares,  I used the same hook I used for the main square part without a question.  Now I regret a bit that I should have used H for the edging for all the squares.   When I started on edging for the square #29 with "F" hook, the stitches were obviously too small comparing to other squares so I switched the hook to "H", then the edging turned out alright. 

I think I will try to use only "H" hook for edging from now on,  whether or not I used different size hook for the main square part... 

I hope you all have a nice weekend!  :)

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. :)
