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

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

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

Argyle-Patterned Cosmetic Bag

Argyle-Patterned Cosmetic Bag | Anita

I'm supposed to be knitting a poncho, but even after much looking around, I didn't find any pattern that I felt suited the two colors that I want to use for this project. Nor was I in the headspace where I could design one by myself. So of course, I ditched this project for the … Continue reading Argyle-Patterned Cosmetic Bag

Back from a Detour

If there's such a thing as a Contemplation-in-Progress project, then that's what I'm working on. And sporadically at that. I actually haven't knit or done any kind of yarn related work at all for more than 2 weeks now. I've been doing some programming for myself, and it was going so great that I didn't … Continue reading Back from a Detour

Yesteryear Yoke

My Yesteryear yoke is now operational! 🙂 I'm so happy that I chose this pattern to replace the destroyed lace in my top, because it complements the top so perfectly. (The pattern is Yesteryear Top by Mimi Alelis.) I crocheted the yoke just as described in the pattern. Well, almost. I did make a few … Continue reading Yesteryear Yoke

WIP: Yesteryear Yoke

My crochet project is now underway! I mentioned in my previous post that I own a top that I've only worn once so far - its lace yoke disintegrated at places when I washed it. (Talk about delicate!) I've been looking at making a crochet yoke for the top, so I can add it back … Continue reading WIP: Yesteryear Yoke

Wall Hanging: L&T SAL 2018

My Linen and Threads SAL project is now a wall hanging! I added decorative crochet edgings to the top and bottom of the piece, a dowel at the top, and a fringe at the bottom. The fringe is still wonky, and I'm hoping to find methods to straighten it. If all else fails, I'll just … Continue reading Wall Hanging: L&T SAL 2018

A ‘Fishy’ Sleeping Bag

I used up leftover yarn from a project or two, and made a sleeping bag for one of our favorite jewelry models - Penguin. 😀 This project was a UFO till recently - I think I'd started it more than a year ago. I'm pretty happy that I finally picked it up again and finished … Continue reading A ‘Fishy’ Sleeping Bag

Lost

I own this top that has lace for the upper part (neck to chest.) To my horror, even with the gentlest of rinsing, the lace tore at places. I didn't want to replace it with more lace, and instead, thought I'll make something of my own. I went with crochet, and thought of keeping it … Continue reading Lost
