Another CP cozy

It's been a while since my last post. (-_-;) My boy brought back a cold from school one day, and we all have been sick since ( for a week already, and we are still sick. *sigh*). But I managed to make a few things. I made a pair of socks exactly like the other one I made before, AND this.



This is again a cellphone cozy. I crocheted it with size #10 thread and 1.5mm hook. When I saw Donna's post about her tea and teapot, I thought about this Japanese pattern I had, and I just had to make it. It came out a bit too big for my cellphone, but it should hold all the cellphones in the current market. The teapot is crocheted, embroidered, and sewed on. One thing is... I wish I had red thread!

Oh, and most importantly, thank you so much Donna for your concern. *bow*

Next thing I really want to try is Tunisian crochet. Mom asked me on the phone if I needed anything from Japan so I answered very quickly that I wanted a Tunisian crochet book. Hehe. I also bought the famous "Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick". I liked everything in the book, and especially those finger puppets kills me! They are too cute. (=^_^=) But I still don't know if I'm going to knit anything from the book... I don't know... I just don't feel like knitting much... Since I said this blog is about "crocheting & knitting", my feeling of guilt just keeps growing and growing. LOL Maybe I should change my blog title. Really seriously.....

I know that this is an OLD post, LOL!, but I am curious if the pattern you have for the CP cozy (with the tea pot) is a free online pattern? I have been TRYING to find a pattern (hence the google search which led me to your page). Thanks for any info on the pattern. :) OR any other teapot patterns you may know of. BLESSINGS!

The pattern PDF can be found at:http://data.cloverhobby.jp/kyan/knit/pdf/02crochet/03crochet_2.pdf

This is a Japanese pattern with symbols, and you will need Adobe Reader with Japanese fonts support.

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. :)
