"Iced" Knit Jacket

I truly enjoyed knitting this jacket.
100% bulky wool yarn that warms you in chilly weather, simple (but very clever) construction, traditional design that never goes outdated.  - This IS knitting to me! :)

"Iced" Wool Jacket

Yarn I used:  Drops Eskimo

This one is going to my sister again. :D  I just know she will look great in it.  I heard that this winter's been very cold in Japan, and I just want her to stay warm. :)  What can I say... I love her. :D  She is always an adorable sister who looks up to me and listens to me more than she does our parents.  Even in her 40s now, I still see her as a little girl who just wanted to follow me no matter how much I shooed her, and she wanted to do everything I did. :D  I sometimes feel really guilty that I'm thousands of miles away when she needs me... maybe that's why I want to knit for her badly in winter. I hope she will wear this, take some time for herself, and go grub a good cup of coffee and relax. :)

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. :)
