Happy 2009!

Wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you had GREAT holidays!

I had little time to crochet/knit for myself in 2008 and to post on this blog, but here are just the ones I actually posted here. :)

Projects 2008

I would like to send big THANK YOU to the kind people I worked with last year. I had opportunities to crochet samples for some great crochet books and knitting magazines, and for Stitch Diva Studios and Crochet by Faye.

I am also happy that many people used my free very simple skateboarder beanie pattern to make gifts. :)

Skateboarder's Beanie

You can see photos of the beanie made by other people here on Ravelry!

For 2009, I am determined to keep yarn, hooks, and needles close to me and to organize my projects and have a better year-end project report! :P

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. :)
