What am I making now

I love this leaflet!!!
All of my friends who come to my crochet classes wanted one too when they saw mine, and they all ordered one. :D


Leisure Arts "Ornaments to Crochet 3 ways"

I've made 7 ornaments already, and I'm working on 8th. I'll probably end up making all of the ornaments in this leaflet. They are our current projects as well for my crochet classes.
You can use worsted weight / sport weight / #10 thread for these ornaments, and I chose sport weight. The main stitch used for these patterns is slip stitch unlike the traditional single crochet stitch used for many small projects.
My ornaments are going to be a gift so photos will be posted after they have been received by a recipient. :)

By the way, I found some nice crochet & knitting patterns (Click the Adobe icons below project photos): http://www.clover.co.jp/hand/hand54a.htm
I'm really sorry, but I won't be able to answer pattern/diagram questions..., but hope you like them! :)

I think because of the slip stitches, those ornaments look knitted...that's why they're so cute ;)
I can't wait to see what you made, Chie (hopefully with bigger pics :D )
And thanks for the link to the Clover site. I looked for more projects there, and saw some other purses that are lovely.

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. :)
