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

Vintage vest

Whenever I see this vest, I think it looks like it's about 50 years too late in the making 🙂 but I love it! It's something that I started quite a while back, and with leftover yarn from not one, not two, but three projects! 😮 I'm just really happy with how it turned out. … Continue reading Vintage vest

Tiny triangles top

Of course, I didn't … Continue reading Tiny triangles top

I've … Continue reading Horizontal cables cardigan

(That's right, I just cannot knit a sweater with only stockinette stitches. 😛 ) For this cardigan, I first knit the cabled strip -- it is about 7cm (2.75") … Continue reading Horizontal cables

Striped phone cover

... with flowers! This is a pretty old project of mine --  a phone cover made using leftover yarn from other projects. (After all, isn't that what phone cover projects use -- leftover yarn? Mine always have...) For the body, I knit in the round for the required length, alternating blue and pink rows. At … Continue reading Striped phone cover

‘Ribersible’ hat — completed

So I had some free time over the end-of-year holidays, and I managed to complete the reversible ribbed hat, or 'Ribersible' hat, that I'd started making for my sister. She seems to be satisfied with it. (Phew! It's always "(s)he likes it... (s)he likes it not..." when you make something that's not for yourself...) When … Continue reading ‘Ribersible’ hat — completed
