Pretty Purse

I had shown you a glimpse of some crochet work in my last post. Here it is. Its a pouch, which can also be used as a sling bag. This was again done as part of a CAL in a group (Good things together) in Ravelry. You can find a tutorial for making this pouch here.

There is a an african flower in the bottom. 

Have a great day!!

Hairpin Crochet

I learned something new!!Hairpin crochet!! I did this as part of a CAL in Ravelry!! When I joined the CAL I had not even heard about this technique.

But then its always fun to learn new things right? Made these flowers using this tutorial!! If you are new to hairpin crochet like me, I think these are the flowers you should start with. After 3 failed attempts I finally nailed it ( I think I did). And I couldn't stop with just one. I had U hooks of two sizes. Made one flower with each.They can be used as a brooch, on bags, as clips, on photo frames, endless options..

Before I go an itsy bitsy peek into something else I am working on. More about it later. Have fun!!

WIP Wednesday

This is a WIP that is going smoothly so far ( just had to frog about 15 rows once, because I felt I should switch to bigger needles). But that is no big deal to me. I am so used to frogging. :). After that it has been smooth sailing till now. For how long?? I don't know.

Welcoming all of you to my new blog. Yeah!! I know the header image can be improved. But I promise I will come up with something better with time. I will not leave you without some pictures of something I recently crocheted.

These are gifts for a friend, Rupi (lazylibran in Ravelry). I met her through Ravelry, but never in person. She is leaving this place and there was a see-off meeting arranged for her, but I could not attend that. Hope to meet you in person sometime Rupi and hope we can continue keeping in touch through Ravelry!!

I made these coasters for her. Came to know she loves blue. I have made two coasters in each colour combination and sewn them together for thickness.

Hope she likes these!!

Mobile Phone Pouches

Made these as gifts.

This colourful one is for my best friend. She bought a new phone and wanted a cheerful pouch for it.

How cute is this button.

This one is for her sister-in-law who specifically asked for a black pouch. Have decorated a little bit using felt.

I had started this as a stash busting project. This multicolored yarn (Sirdar Click) was lying in my stash since a long time. Started making a drop stitch scarf with it, but it looked really bad in the pattern.

Tried 2 or 3 other patterns as well. But was not very happy with the look. Then found Enchanting. It looked fine but I did not have enough yarn to complete it. By this time my Mother fell ill and I did not have time to look for other patterns, and I really needed mindless knitting to reduce the stress. So picked some merino wool from my stash in a hurry and took it home with me. 

I am happy with the final product. The drape is lovely.

And I really love the bobbles in the edging. Found this easy and wonderful tutorial to make bobbles.
