I have lots in mind

I had not been feeling so well until today. I am OK this morning, and I am happy about that. (*^_^*)


Since the cradle purse, I worked on a project for my Crochetville Secret Pal, and squares for 63 Square CAL. I will post pictures of my squares next time. Oh, I almost forgot, I also worked on one of my WIPS, "Best Vest" after another long enough interval! (-_-;)

Well, I still like knitting (and I figured that knitting is so much easier on my shoulders and arms), but I think it is the vest that keeps me away from knitting needles. The pattern is just so complicated, I don't have patience for it anymore. BUT! Like I said before, I am finishing it this year.....(hopefully).

As the weather gets cooler, my mind starts going toward knitting. I have many nice Japanese knitting patterns to knit, and I am thinking about getting some Japanese yarn.


I have decided to work ONLY on my squares from now on until I finish the afghan. (^_-)-* I am not good at having multiple projects going at the same time. When I do that, I lose my concentration, and I don't finish any. (^_^;)

After I finish the afghan, I plan to knit my son's poncho, crochet Hubby's vest, two pairs of socks, some things for Halloween, scrubbies, doilies, etc., etc...... (^o^)

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. :)
