Sailing... Sailing

Sailing Sailing Posted by Hello

It's a doily that has waves and ships around. (^_^)

ADDED - About its pattern.
On the site I found the pattern of this doily, it was written both in English and Japanese. Once you click on the link above to go the pattern page, your browser(IE) may ask you to download a Japanese text display file. Go ahead and do that, and next, you have to make sure Japanese text is showing properly by clicking on "View" >>> "Encoding" on your brownser. If "Japanese (Auto-Select)" is checked, the page is displaying as it supposed to.
In order to continue on to the next page, click on the link (in Japanese) at the very bottom of the page.

If you go the top page of "Crochet in English" where I found the pattern of this doily, you will see pictures of some more beautiful doilies. You can go to the pattern page by clicking on the photo of your favorite doily.
One thing is though, you can find most of the doily patterns there on other free pattern web site such as Crochet Pattern Central. Patterns there do not have Japanese translation so you won't have to change encoding on your browser. Unluckily so far, I have not found "Sailing... Sailing" pattern anywhere else but the one above. I will keep searching its pattern only in English, and I will post the link here when I find one. (^_^)

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. :)
