Hot from the crochet oven

Its been long since I posted about my needles and yarn. So here goes….

First up is a pullover for a friend. I got the design from Ravelry and though it took me a long time to crochet it, I had fun doing it, more so because I know the receipiant will appreciate my work and it was my first pullover.

Next up is a bag which I made as a part of the Ravelry CAL / KAL (Crochet ALong / Knit ALong). Everyone who joins the groups makes the same object (this time the theme was bags). Next is going to be Amigurumi (watch this space for more). I was not very happy with the bag that I made because I realised I had gone all wrong in counting the number of stitches, while I way into the project and it was too late to redo everything. But its ok, I can use it to carry library books or something of that sort. πŸ™‚

Yes, yes.. the colours are crazy. But this project was also a stash buster, as in finish the little bits of remaining yarn from my stash. πŸ™‚

Finally, my favourtie – IPod cozy. Its so cute, so easy and so fast to make. I made two – one for a friend and another for a little girl who lives opposite to our home. I have to thank SaraΒ for the pattern. I had so much fun making these.

Crochet is such a stress buster these days – what with the heat and the busy routine and work.,etc. Finally I leave you with a picture of Mimi made by Mimi.

The bit that looks like his neck is supposed to be his stomach. That’s the artists version. So, don’t argue. πŸ˜›
