Bitten by the crocheting bug

I started crocheting again (not that I'm good at it or anything) but it seems like the logical thing to do on cold and chilly days in December. It keeps your mind active in a stationary position.

I picked up crocheting using the books you see in the picture.
I wrote a review on one of the books here.   

I attempted something bigger than my usual mini flower motif this time (as in the picture above). It turned out quite all right for a beginner like me (I think) but I still can't seem to get the tension right *sigh* 

I use my completed projects (the better ones) to embellish bags and pouches

On a totally different note, here are a couple of pictures of us here in Kyoto.

December will soon end, have you started reevaluating your year and making plans for the year to come..?? Pin It

mmg cantik.. buat book mark pun cantik.. :) saya rasa benang crochet yang halus ni mmg payah sikit.. tapi bila dah biasa nanti, hasilnya mmg cantik.. saya masih selesa dgn benang yang tebal sikit sbb saya budak masih belajar.. hehe... :) keep on crocheting tau cik sue..

MisFyd said...

Agree with MamaDaniel =) Ganbarou!!

Even Fyd pun jarang nk guna thread compare to thicker yarn...sbb selesa ngn yarn tebal skit...

But if nk bat doilies & lace mmg sesuai guna benang halus =D

Don't worry too much about tension sbb lain org lain skit although pakai jarum & benang sama... if rasa tk puas ati dgn outcome cuba tukar size jarum...just need try & practice je :)

BTW thanks for the link!

Mama Daniel and MisFyd - thanks for sharing your ideas with me.. so better use thicker yarn ek.. will try to look for them next time i'm in 100yen shop.. heheh
and thanks ladies for the nudge, though i only get the crocheting bug like once a year during the winter season, i'll try to practice more :)

I have some crocheting books, bought long time ago, but have yet to start, sigh..

It was good for you that the cold weather makes you start crocheting. Perhaps I will start it when Malaysia is snowing.
