Great Tawashi!

I've been trying to find cute and practical tawashi designs, and when I was visiting my favorite blogs last week, I finally found them! These tawashi are just perfect for cleaning dishes. :) I used Japanese antibacterial acrylic yarn.

"Flower Scrubbie" & "Handy Tawashi" designed by Mimi Alelis

My friend and a crochet designer, Mimi created this great tawashi patterns! You can purchase these patterns at her Ravelry store and also her Etsy store.

For those of you who never heard of "tawashi", it's a Japanese word for "scrubbie". Generally, tawashi is either crochet or knit with acrylic yarn, and it's the best thing to use especially for washing dishes! - I always have tawashi in my kitchen. Once you start using them, you will never buy sponges! If I never crocheted, I would learn it just to make tawashi, really. :)

Anyways, I'm happy the photos are up and everything now that I can finally use these cute tawashi! :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.


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. :)
