Simple Twisted Headbands

Since I cut my hair recently, it's been interfering more with my workouts 🙂 so I decided to make a couple of the simple twisted headband that I made last year for my sis. (Pattern by Rebecca Langford.) And when my sis found me crocheting these, she requested a wider version to serve as an … Continue reading Simple Twisted Headbands

Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

I've completed my Strolling Round the Square Beaded Shawlette (pattern by Manda Shah), and I totally love it! I could say it's my new favorite project, but let's face it, every project that I finish seems like a favorite at that moment. 🙂 But really, I loved working on the project. It was challenging and … Continue reading Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

WIP: Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

I continue knitting the shawlette, and it definitely is challenging! (I love it!) Remember I'd talked last time about how I managed to figure out the missing errata for the project by creating a chart-chart? However, I was in for more surprises as I went deeper into the project - The number of stitches keeps … Continue reading WIP: Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

New Project – Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

Hello! I'm back since I just started on a new knitting project. It's been two months since my last knit, but the break didn't actually feel too bad, since I'm still enjoying being arty, and I had your crafty updates to check out. I'm glad my knitting mojo is back, however! 🙂 On my needles … Continue reading New Project – Strolling Round the Square Shawlette

Butterfinger-Proofing – Deo Case

Deo Case | Crochet | Anita

Clumsiness. I seem to exhibit more of this when I handle fragile stuff. Like my roll-on deodorant bottle. It's made of glass, and no matter how careful I am, I end up dropping it at least once in its lifetime - mostly when I'm moving it around. Sometimes, I have good reflexes, and I catch … Continue reading Butterfinger-Proofing – Deo Case

East Beach Tee

East Beach Tee | Anita

I'm happiest when starting a project, and even more so, while I'm ending it - especially while blocking, when I can admire the fruits of the hard (but enjoyable) work that I put in over the past few weeks (or months, in my case.) And it is with a happy grin that I present my … Continue reading East Beach Tee

Simple Twisted Headband

Hope you are enjoying the holiday season! As for me - I'd underestimated the number of items I'll want to tackle during my staycation. 😉 I obviously have not finished my East Beach Tee, and I don't think I will before the year ends. However, I worked on a mindless crochet project over a few … Continue reading Simple Twisted Headband

WIP: East Beach Tee

Still knitting this one. I'd thought I would wear it at least once before the year ends, but now I'm not too sure - I have a competing ongoing activity, my art journal project. (Speaking of the year ending, where did 2019 go?) The good news, though, is that there will be absolutely no yarn … Continue reading WIP: East Beach Tee

East Beach Tee – Third Time Lucky?

Looks like my chosen two colors for the East Beach Tee are not meant to be. Regardless of the combination I came up with, it turns out I cannot make this project with these two - I'd fall short on one color every time. So I frogged some of the project, and changed the contrast … Continue reading East Beach Tee – Third Time Lucky?

New Project – East Beach Tee

So turns out I'm not making a poncho. 🙂 Since I didn't find many poncho (or swoncho) designs for the two colors of yarn that I want to use next, and I'm still not in a design-friendly state of mind, I thought the East Beach Tee by Meghan Kelly would work best as my next … Continue reading New Project – East Beach Tee
