That really looks so sweet, Chie! How wonderful to be having another baby in your family.
Btw, I just bought a japanese book with lots of cute baby crochet designs at our bookstore. Maybe when my niece gives birth on January I will have the motivation to make some baby items. And yes, I'm going to be a grandaunt for the first time :p

Thanks! I'm really looking forward to see this baby (at least on photos)! She is 5 days over-due, and my sister says still no signs of her coming out to this world. :( We should have this baby soon though, that's for sure!

It's getting cooler now here in Mississippi, and I can feel fall is finally here! :D I still don't have much time for my own crochet/knit, but I'm slowly working on it. :) I think I'm all into baby/kids items right now, and have decided what to make next. :)

I love to gress

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. :)
