"Night Owls"

Hmm... I promised a progress picture of the filet last time... Sorry I couldn't keep the promise. (>_<) But what about..... finished picture!!!

Owl filet crochet
The pattern is from Magic Crochet- June 1989. P38-39.

I said on my last post that it's wallhanging, but I think I'll put it on the little window we have just like the picture in the magazine. (^_^) Years ago, I tried size 40 thread, and I gave up. This time, the thread and all those treble stitches didn't hurt at all, but I need to work on steady tention of stitches.

This is the only project I have been working on, and I have no WIPs. I still can't decide what to work on next, but I think I am going to use thread mainly until the end of summer.

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. :)
