Apple Doily

I know this is belated, but HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!!! :)

Again, I was hit by an urge to crochet a doily, and I found this free pattern on Ravelry. :D

"Apple for the Teacher Doily"
designed by Denise Augostine

This doily can be worked up in just a few hours, and I'm sure it would make a nice gift for teachers. This year, I'm my son's teacher so this doily is for myself. Ha!

I also recently found many beautiful doilies some skilled crocheters made on Flickr, and I was off to my local craft store right away to buy some thread in pretty colors. :) Now I'm on the hunt for beautiful variegated thread!

I feel the joy of crochet the most from using #10 thread and little hooks. How about you? :) More doilies to follow... I think. :D

I love to look at the results of thread crochet but it makes me slightly crazy when I do any myself! Love your doily - very pretty :-)

I love your Apple doily. I would love to make one myself, but I can not get the free pattern anywhere. Every site is down. Can you share your copy.

Thanks

I have to say this apple doily is a fun pattern. I have made it now in cream with red apples... I've done beige with red apples... and I've also done black with red apples... the newest version is green apples.... I've also used two different shades of green for the leaves on the beige and cream doily. Thank you so much for posting this doily. I'll be making more.

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. :)
