Crocheted BearI never thought I will try some amigurumi crochet until I saw a lady in the coffee shop in our office building who make different dolls everyday.

I remember there are some amigurumi patterns in Thai magazine that I buy every month. So I chose the pattern that I thought will be easy enough for me and it surprised me I can do that in a short time.

Making the body parts is easy, to put it together is harder than to crochet the parts. My work is not quite neat yet, and it made me want to make another one short after I finished the bear.

I picked the bunny for my next project. The pattern still from the same magazine. I can do this while I’m watching some tv  series. I think I will make more amigurumi for a while.

Many things happened in my life in the past few months. I made baby socks and follow the mystery scarf CAL to get back to my hooks and yarns.

For the baby socks pattern I got from my friend who got it from free pattern somewhere.

The one that was uploaded in Crochet Partners have 4 rays while the one that I learned before has 6 rays.

Crocus Doily

Finally I finished this doily. It took me months to made this. A lot of other things distracted me. I cannot remember when I really started this project, but I remember queued this doily on Ravelry since December last year. As this is an exchange doily (which I already received the exchanged since last year), the receiver request the red color for the doily. This is my first doily in color and it turns out red doily is more attractive than white doily. I hope my friend like this red doily.

First of all, I would like to greet all of you with Happy New Year 2009.

This year I decided to practice my knit again. If it wasn’t because I wanted to learn how to knit, I don’t think I will find my passion in crocheting. The reason I learn to knit again is because each time I see knit wearable patterns I always want to be able to make it. It just I’m not patient enough to deal with drop stitches and when there’s a miscount in pattern, it’s harder to undo the mistake compared to crochet.

Anyway, before new year, we moved to the new unit and I need more dishcloths, coasters and hot pad. So, this is a good reason to try to make them (knit or crochet).
