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

Coffee mug cosy / cover

My sis got a coffee mug at her job yesterday for their green initiative, and she asked if I could make something to protect the mug, maybe with some old scrap yarn. I did have just the scrap yarn for a crocheted cosy that can double as a cover if I make it slightly longer. … Continue reading Coffee mug cosy / cover

Letter holder

Well, it's been a long time since I did some crochet, and I finally got the opportunity. The table in my room has been collecting old receipts. (I know right, in this age of online everything!) I don't think I really need them, but I decided to keep them at least until the warranty period … Continue reading Letter holder

Tote bag motif

I was watching a movie while I … Continue reading Tote bag motif

This asymmetric shawl is one of those experiments that was pretty successful as I see it. 🙂 … Continue reading Scalene shawl

Waiting granny square pieces…

I'm trying to remember how old these pieces are. (The photo looks pretty old, but I assure you, I clicked it just yesterday using a retro camera app on my phone. Very retro, indeed! 😀 ) I almost can't recall when I made these, but they're at least a couple of years old. I can … Continue reading Waiting granny square pieces…

Granny Hexagon Placemat

Harmony. That's what I felt when I started working on a placemat using my stashes of tan and black light weight yarn. And that's what I feel after I'm all done with the piece. The colors just complement each other so beautifully. I'd like to acknowledge Kara at Petals and Picots for her photo-filled tutorials … Continue reading Granny Hexagon Placemat
