Ripple Afghan

It feels great to have something to share with everyone and post again!!!
I missed doing this so much!

I have just finished a ripple afghan for my son, and it's the first project on my year 2006 album. :)
I would try to pick up little chances to work on it so it had progressed very slowly, but I'm glad it's finally done!
This afghan reduced my stash of RHSS nicely. :)


So how is everyone doing? :)

It seems that the fiber art world is having some exciting Olympics here and there, and I so wish I could participate!
I look forward to seeing participants' achievements. :)

I love your shawl! I think is so hard to pick colors for boys but your did a good job on this project.
Chie said…
Thank you, Mimi! :)
I usually have hard time picking out colors for my boy, and the result is not very satisfying...
But this time, I just threw colors in without thinking much about it, and it came out fine, I think. :D

Hi. I stumbled upon your blog while looking for keito dama magazine information. You mentioned finding it in a 2004 post. One of my goals is to explore knitting and crochet of other countries/cultures--whether through patterns, motifs,technique. My blog is very new (iminstitches.blogspot.com) and has few of my projects. Please visit; I would welcome comments.

My question is, does the magazine provide english translations of the patterns? Can they be obtained?

Your readers are also invited to comment. Thank you for entertaining my questions. jbj

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. :)
