Sorry I'm late...

But... HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!!!

Last year passed VERY quickly.  I stayed pretty busy - My son became a first grader, I stayed busy making crochet samples, testing patterns, teaching crochet, and working behind the Stitch Diva Studios.  I started this new year just as busy, and I hope this year will be as good as last year... or even better! :)

*****

I'm ashamed to say, I still haven't posted all the photos of the projects I finished last year. :P
This is still just one of them, but I made more corsages to give to teachers with the candy I like to make in winter.

More Corsage
Pattern: Lion Brand "Crochet Rosettes / Flowers"
Yarn: Patons SWS
Hook: J/10/6mm

I love the colors of Patons SWS yarn.  I already had some skeins, but I just didn't know what to make with them before.  I was able to make 3 flowers out of 1 skein and each one of them looked slightly diffent, which I liked. :)
Just to avoid any confusion, the pictured 3 corsages above came from 3 different colors of the yarn.

Hi Mimi! :)

Good luck to you too for all of your great designs. :)

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. :)
