"Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf"

Fall seems to have finally arrived here, and of course, my urge for playing with yarn hit. :D
I finished this scarf!

My yarn of choice was Lion Brand Amazing in 2011 Glacier Bay.   Glacier Bay... I'm sure every time I wrap this scarf around my neck, I'll be daydreaming about Alaska, the land I've never stepped into.   I even like just saying "Glacier Bay" for some reason. :D


The multi-directional rows of this scarf really accentuate the color shifts in this yarn.  This pattern requires only knit stitches (no purling y'all!), and basic increasing & decreasing.  Also, no counting is necessary for the most part of it (who wouldn't love that!).

My scarf has 32 stitches for 5" width with #9 needles.  I used almost all 2 skeins, and it was enough to have a good length.  I've already been working on my 2nd in a different colorway! :)

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. :)
