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

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

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

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

Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl

Looks like I managed productive bursts of knitting towards the end of my current project, and completed it as a surprise move! I'm as surprised as you are - I certainly expected this post to be an I'm-almost-there one. This shawl is inspired by Puck's Tunic from Susanna IC. I knit the shawl with sections … Continue reading Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl

Kashmiri Shawl

Kashmiri Shawl | Anita

My Kashmiri Shawl is now done! The shawl is a pattern from Lana Jois, to which I've made very minimal modifications to better suit the yarn and my preferences.   Ever spent ages trying (and failing) to capture in pictures just how lovely you find your project? I keep thinking the pictures just don't do … Continue reading Kashmiri Shawl

Amherst Cardigan

Amherst Cardigan

I've finished knitting the Amherst Cardigan! Emphasis on the word 'knitting', since the actual finishing - the blocking - still remains to be done. I'll get to that after about six months, since that's probably when I'll finally use the sweater. The ends are woven in, thankfully, since I weave in ends as I go, … Continue reading Amherst Cardigan
