Last one and a half months

Ok... I know it's been way too long since the last post... AGAIN. *sigh*
Trust me, it's really embarrassing that I almost feel like I should just shut this blog..... but maybe not just yet. :) I started this blog more than 3 years ago, and I really hope I will be able to keep it like... forever. :D

The crochet & knitting season is in, and I currently teach crochet twice a week at my house. I've also been crocheting & knitting like a mad woman and finished 2 bags, 2 simple scarves, and some other small items. I bought a few books which I LOVE. I also experimented SPINNING with a drop spindle!! I plan to crochet & knit as many winter garments as possible this year.

I'll post later for the details of the things I mentioned above. Right now, I'm overwhelmed. :D I'll try to do photo taking and posting as soon as I can, I promise!

Today, I just want to announce that I'm finally at Ravelry and also Crochet Me!!! You can find me by the URL of this blog, although I need to warn you that I don't have much on them yet. :P

Just wanted to say Hi! I've also finally at Ravelry. Please show your spinning. That's one thing I've never tried.
Hi Chie,
I am so glad that you got your invite! I got mine last week I think. Silly you don't ever consider shutting down your site~

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. :)
