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

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 crocheted this circular motif for a joint project -- a tote bag that my sister and I decided to make. Though I say it's a joint project, the sewing of the piece, which is the more tedious work, is handled by my sister. (She sews really well.) I was watching a movie while I … Continue reading Tote bag motif

Scalene shawl

Yet another post that is delayed due to various reasons, the main one being my laziness. :/ After a bout of creative experimentation for new knitting-related stuff, I've just been too bored to follow through on the results. 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

Decorative piece from scrap yarn

Time to talk about decorative pieces! And scrap yarn! And how scrap yarn is wonderful for making colorful decorative pieces! The inevitability of working on a yarn project is that after the project ends, there's yarn left over. The problem is always that this yarn is too less to use for the usual projects, but … Continue reading Decorative piece from scrap yarn

A crocheted keychain ornament

I didn't work much on my cardigan project this past week since I was busy trying to figure out stuff for my new photo-blog, so I thought I'd write about a micro-project that I finished instead -- a crocheted keychain ornament. I finally got my house key copy from my dad, so I thought of … Continue reading A crocheted keychain ornament
