Basket Case Cardigan

I finished my Basket Case Cardigan (pattern by Kristen TenDyke) - and how I love it! I had a larger-than-usual quantity of this yarn, so I made the sweater's body longer than the pattern called for. I still have a little ball of the yarn left, and it'll go with the rest of my leftover … Continue reading Basket Case Cardigan

Torque Hat

I've gone from recently lamenting on not having WIP projects to having more than one! And I'm definitely not complaining. My Basket Case Cardigan is nearing completion, but I took a break from it to make my mom a hat. She doesn't usually wear hats, but increasingly colder winds in recent winters finally convinced her … Continue reading Torque Hat

Loom Weaving Test

I tried my hand at weaving on the loom that I bought recently, and made a thing! Admittedly, the color is a bit weird, but it was a deliberate decision on my part since I chose yarns I don't mind wasting if things didn't turn out right. But they did turn out right, as it … Continue reading Loom Weaving Test

Weaving News!

Since my previous post, there have been a couple of developments in my nascent weaving life. I found my weaving UFO - the third placemat, resumed working on it, and completed it (not very neatly, I must say.) I even added a crochet border similar to the ones I'd added to the other two, so … Continue reading Weaving News!

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
