Coins in a sack

I found a knitting free pattern for baby's hat some time ago that really looks like a sack - a very nice one indeed. I probably have downloaded the pattern but... no FO was produced from the pattern yet :D

Then one day, my daughter told me that she lost her purse (againn??? *sigh*) at school. Well, no point to fret for that... lost things hardly find their way back, especially if they 'wondered' somewhere inside a primary school compound. My mind starts finding alternatives for a purse (err.. purses, to be exact) so that they would 'last' longer. Surely enough, a thought of using yarn came immediately to my mind and... these are what I made:

... crocheted mini sacks, perfect to hold coins that are both flexible and durable. Moreover, they are washable and can be easily produced over and over again. Most importantly, they are less eye-catching to the sharp-eyed cute-purse-predators around... Believe me, mini sack lasts longer compared to cute purse... muahahaha!

Adik's hat

Adik's hat... as mentioned earlier. All hats were used during our recent holiday on an island. ;D

I'm in a bit of a hurry. Just to update new photos of my recent FOs:

Angah's new hat, and...


Adik had her own hat, of course - you can see the glimpse of her hat from my profile picture (will upload that later). Now, we can head to the beach... see ya!

Cotton yarn samples

I've been searching high and low for cotton yarn supplier nearby. Yes, if you're looking hard enough, you might be able to find what you are looking for... like cotton yarns! However, they might not be available at the nearby physical store but, online! The world is without border :D

These are cotton yarn samples that I received from Ayza, specially wrapped and tagged ~ a big THANKS from me!

And who knows, you can meet new friends like Ayza and Hernik whom I believe share some common interests like I do. Well, yarns can bring wonders! ;-)

Hat on Teddy

This is my first crocheted hat. Found a free pattern that is both easy and interesting; the things lacking are the choice of yarn and suitable needle size for this project. Even with using double yarns, the hat only fits Teddy's head. Lucky Teddy! :D

Here comes the hat

Yeah... after the baby booties, I made baby hats. This is one of the hats that I completed, specially made for baby Alisha.

Hmm... looks like there's quite an empty space on the left, isn't it? Actually that space was reserved for the booties.

Knitted booties + a crocheted hat... awww... what a pair! (I see Alisha's photo wearing the hat @Fb... soo adorable! Baby and hat, of course... LOL)

Booties... for lovely babies

This is a picture of a pair of booties that I managed to prepare for my nephew two weeks ago:

"Welcome to the world, Nephew!"

It all started when we (the 'KnitCrochet' club members) were admiring the cable knit on a machine-made garment worn by the President of the Club - everybody was wondering how the cable was created. Thanks to the Internet, where the world is without border, I found a simple tutorial on knitting cables. I found yet another pattern online - baby booties with cables - an ideal project to test the cable!! What do you know... soon after, these pairs were produced:

The red ones - don't they look like Santa's?? :D

A ball... of yarn

Yawn... soooo sleepy... The image above was the remains of a recent UFO - almost finish! However, it turned out to be too big for me so I decided to un-crochet the UFO. Hmmm... what to do with it? Let's see if the ball will eventually turn into something... wonderful to wear.
