Butterfly Graph Crochet November 9, 2007

Filed under: graph — riabeef @ 7:30 pm

This was one of my first projects. i think it took me a year to finish this one, coz its so monotonous for me. i just have to stop after few row,  i got bored quickly with it. and was also put in the UFO bag for quite sometime. so when i found it out again, i decided to finish it and  stopped all ongoing projects and just focus on this one.

it measures 25 x 25 inches, i havent starch it yet coz i dont have the big starching board, so just pin it on the bed to see how does it look like when its stretch out.

i made it using a size 10 rayon thread and 1.3 steel hook.

Actually i got the invitation yesterday and then i register today.

so today is my first day.

 looks like i will not have time to crochet since i got a lot to browse there. lolz. im still busy with a lot of things so cant organize my stuff there yet. i think ill need 2 weeks more and the fact that the camera went on vacation err i mean went vacation with my sis. so i really have to wait…

with ramadan, i find a lot of time to crochet since i work for 6 hrs only. i have done few scarves lately and another try for a shrug with yarn this time. i missed making doily so last night i tried to make one in  pineapple pattern. i thought i was going allright and fast but then after 8 rows it doesnt look right for me, i felt like im nto doing it correctly. i have to frog and frog, count and count (im using chart pattern) at first i have counted less and then now that i think ive got the right counts looks like its too much, it will lay flat but a part will be ruffled because its too much i guess. *sigh*

 will still try to figure it out today otherwise move on to another doily. before ramadan ends.

i think somebody had done that doily before, saw it on someone’s blog. ill try to recall and browse around maybe that could be of help for me.


Mini Fat Bottom Bag October 3, 2007

Filed under: fat bottom bag — riabeef @ 8:53 pm

ahhhh the ever famous fat bottom bag.

since i dont really crochet by instructions but more on charts, i was sooooo happy finding a chart for a fat bottom bag version from a portuguese blog and watch also instructional  videos  from youtube.com also in portuguese. although i dont understand the language the videos help me figure it out. i had used hdc all over and sc for the flap for the ring handles.

and here it is … came out to be a pounch instead of a bag lolz. as you can see  in the pic i put it on top of a DVD case to show how small it is and i have used my (not same color)bangles as handles, it fits perfectly. i used 5mm hook and this yarn , its 100 grams but didnt finish it all so i might have used 75gms only.


i wanted to do another one and of course a bigger one, ill do that once i found a nice yarn or thread and a handle.  


First Shrug September 13, 2007

Filed under: wearables — riabeef @ 7:09 pm


last month i tried to crochet a shrug since it looks easy. i wanted to corchet  wearables in the future so i thought its the  best project to start at. i just crocheted a rectangle and then folded it in half, single crocheted both sides to fasten it together for the armholes and kept a hole in the middle. unfortunately i ran out of thread so i only put dc’s as edgings in the armholes/sleeves. my shrug looks unfinished but anyway my family members were amazed on my “unfinished” FO. lolz.

TINY ELEPHANT May 17, 2007

Filed under: amigurumi — riabeef @ 7:55 pm

im back!

first project after vacation…a miniature elephant. its name is “ELI” measures 2 1/2 inches. i used  pink  monaco thread and  size 6 hook. if you will look closely its not that perfectly done but im very happy with the outcome it looks sooooo cute! my siblings liked it. and even did a photshoot with it.

 just yesterday printed out a pattern from the internet and im very eager to finish it.  what ive read before that when making  such kind of project always crochet tight… so my fingers are aching. i dont know if i wanna do it again, maybe with a bigger size of hook or a bigger size of thread.

sorry for the blurry photo…
