Cowl for a Friend

I knitted a cowl for a good friend back in October...  (I know, I know... it's now February of the new year, and my last post here was a year ago!  XD)

"Silkie" Cowl
Pattern:  "Silkie" by Gudrun Johnston - Purchased at Ravelry

Yarn: Quince and Co. Osprey in Delft 108

I started with provisional/chain cast-on to finish this snood with 3-needle bind-off. - If you don't know what I'm talking about here and really want to learn knitting, visit KnittingHelp.com :)
I'm a huge fan of the I-cord edge of this cowl (smooth, beautiful side edges!), and not having to use a cable needle to create this stitch pattern was a plus!  It was quick and the stitch pattern was not boring or too complex. :)

Oh, and I have another scarf in progress, and I won't be long before I post it here, I promise! :D

nice to see your post. I haven't blogged in forever, but I have also taken up knitting, which I'm addicted to. This is a nice cowl pattern.

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. :)
