Award ?!!!

My friend Kelly at The Crafty Cat nominated me for this award! I think this is my first award I received as a blogger, how cool! Thanks Kelly. :) *hugs*


Now it's my turn to nominate some Rockin' Girl Bloggers. :)
Gosh, I have so MANY favorite blogs I visit regularly as you can see on my feeds at Bloglines, and it's really hard to choose just five out of all...

But... ok... Here are my nominees! :)
They are all very talented crafters and their works are very inspiring! I know you will be regular visitors like me (Or maybe you have already been their visitors). :D
I haven't checked if they have been nominated already, but I don't think anyone will mind being nominated for this award more than one time. :)

Mimi @ Crochet and Other Stuff

Myla M @ my little mochi

Chelle @ Luv 2 Crochet Blog

Julie @ with a hook

??? @ BitterSweet
I'm sorry I don't know this blog owner's name, and I'm assuming the owner of the blog is a girl. :)

Oh, I almost forgot about the rules. :D - If I've nominated you, please be nice, play along, and nominate 5 other really cool blogs that you enjoy. :)

Wow, thanks Chie!!!
Actually, I was being lazy and find it hard to pick out only five bloggers...but I guess I would have to play along...

Kelly -
Thanks, aren't they really good bloggers! :) Hope you are having a great weekend too!

Mimi -
Oh, you so deserve this award!! :)
I thought of adding more than 5 too, and I had AT LEAST 20 of them in mind, but I knew after I put 20 then I'd want to add more so I said to myself, "Ok, just pick 5 already!!". :D

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. :)
