Update on scarf

*Sigh* I started thinking the yarn which I'm using for the scarf is a little too itchy. I adjusted the width and made it narrower so that it doesn't touch skin when worn over a turtle-neck sweater... but still, I'm not sure if I should keep knitting scarves with the yarn... :(
I thought about making a shawl instead, but the color the yarn to me is too flashy to make a bigger item such as a shawl with...
I don't know what to do now. :(

Hi Chie,

We can change our plan - I'm open for anything, so please let me know if you had a better idea beside making scarf. I don't wear turtle much, so I don't like to get itchy - shawl is cool to me though! Or how about to make Celica's "haramaki" LOL - Once I seriously tried to make it but I could not finish it. Haha! Anyway, I'll call you when I'm ready :)
See ya!

I'm so sorry about the yarn... I got too happy about the price tag, and forgot to check how itchy it was. Maybe we can make it wider and make a shoulder wrap? I'll email you!

Thank you so much for your suggestion! :) Yes, I'm actually thinking about making a bag with1 of 2 colors I have. Fortunately, there is a felted bag pattern on it's website: http://www.modadea.com/cache.htm
I might skip the ruffle and add height to it though. ;D

hehe I was gonna suggest a bag.
I think it's lovely yarn a bag would look great

I have one scarf in my WIP box, and I'm not eager to finish it also because it is itchy (acrylic, mohair blend), but I started on it anyway, because I only have one skein of that yarn and its enough to make a scarf :p
I think your shoulder wrap idea will work ;)

Thanks for your suggestion, Kari! How do you think about the felted bag I mentioned above? :) I have 10 skeins total and it only requires 4 skeins for the bag so I think I'll try it. :)

Mimi -
You have an itchy scarf too? :D I was so upset because I thought the knitted fabric was coming along pretty... I'll probably use 4 skeins for the felted bag, 5 for a shoulder wrap and 1 skein for the flower pin that's also on the Moda Dea website mentioned above. :)
Thanks Mimi!!!

Hm, I won't comment too much on the scarf, because I haven't really read the other entry and this now is only going to be quick post on my part, because I only wanted to tell you that I can't read the comments on your site. It seems like you are using white fonts on a white background. I can only read them when I highlight them and I've tried it with the Firefox and the IE, but it still does not make any difference...

You have no idea how grateful I am for your comment!!!! That was the ONLY problem I was having with this template, and I just had no clue what was causing it. This problem is now all fixed! THANK YOU, thank you, thank you!

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. :)
