Flying tomorrow

I'm still here at our home in Mississippi, but tomorrow morning we are flying! :)))
Our first flight will stop at Detroit, then the next one will reach Osaka Kansai Airport at about 5AM on 28th Central Time so that means the whole trip from this house to Osaka, Japan will take about 23 hours! I will survive..... :D

I've packed a coloring book, some story books, crayons, origami, Nintendo games, a set of my boy's clothes, etc. etc. to keep my boy as comfy & busy as possible while we are in the sky. And of course, some yarn and a couple of leaflets of crochet dishclothes for me! :)

I have been SUPER busy during last couple of months working, taking care of my family when they caught stomach virus... and myself. :( I had the worst symptoms this time with terrible stomach cramps followed by vomiting, fever, and knots on my neck. :( We seriously thought I had something a lot worse than the common stomach virus, but it ended up it was just the virus and the infection which some antibiotics took care of.

I'm almost done packing and starting to feel relaxed. :) I don't remember the last time when I felt this relaxed.
It's been 3 years since the last time I was in Japan, and I'm very excited to be able to be able to spend some time with my folks there. :)
I miss my family, and I really gotta meet the new members of our family too (in-laws my niece)!

I will be back in mid June, but I'll try to post some photos of Japan while I'm there!

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. :)
