I have been thinking a lot about "creativity". I see lots of crocheters with such wonderful creativity, and I wondered about myself... Maybe I am not so creative. I know I can follow instructions (patterns), and make nice things, but they are not really "my" works. Oh how I'd love to be creative! But wait, it's not that I can't create anything at all, I have some ideas, and I HAVE made my own designs before... Well, I have been reading this to try to figure out, what "creativity" is, and what my problems are for not being so creative.

I laugh about myself thinking that creative people don't even have to think like I do or try to study what creativity is! LOL Anyways, what I need to do is to figure about "myself" and not really about "creativity", I think...

I believe in talents... Some people are just so gifted, they can do some things just naturally so well, and that's wonderful! :) And I think being able to appreciate their talent is a gift given to me. :))) I loooooove seeing other people's works.

I just hope now that the creativity can be learned...

Maybe I'm just a bit depressed since lots of things are going on around me, and I am so busy in my head, I did not get much crocheting done lately. LOL I really need some quiet time to just sit and crochet away. :)

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. :)
