Crocheville Secret Pal revealed!



Around 3PM today, UPS car stopped in front of my house. I saw it through the window, and my heart started beating hard thinking that it may be a package from my Crochetville Secret Pal just because it is almost the end of Autumn Crochetville Secret Pal Swap. Well, I was right, it was, and the secret was revealed! My Pal was "Kari"!!!
When I opened the box, the first thing that hit me was the sweet fragrance of potpourri, incense, and a candle. (*^^*) And there were 3 skeins of my favorite Lion Brand's Wool-Ease (I gave them a big hug! LOL), Southmaid's "Masterpiece Doilies" booklet, and a sweet message note too! Actually, I was having one of my bad days today feeling exhausted, disgusted, and I was eating every candies that came into my eye sight UNTIL I received the package! Kari, you made me smile AND cry. LOL Oh, and I stopped eating all the candies, too! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH Kari, for sending me all the goodies and for all your thoughts and concerns. You have just been so great! I absolutely love everything you sent me. (*^_^*)

Now what am I gonna make with the yarn? (^_^) *the goofest happy dance of mine* LOL LOL I just can't help it! (^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.

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. :)
