Butterfly Bookmark

I was so inspired by Donna, Julie, and Tiff, I had to make my own bookmark too. :D



Above is the Butterfly Bookmark. I wish I had yellow thread, but I guess it's OK. I had never crocheted a bookmark before this one, and it was a lot of fun! :) There are so many generous people who share their free bookmark patterns too so it was not easy to just pick one. :) In fact, I am thinking about making a couple more, and I wish I participated the July-August Crochetville Swap. :'( I even bought the book "3 Donzen & One Bookmarks" like the swap members did! I saw the book before, and I tried to pretend like I didn't see it, but I just had to get it. LOL Those little coloful thingies like bookmarks are just so addictive. :)

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. :)
