My very first sock monkey :)

I’ve been wanting to make a sock monkey for the longest time, but I had been waiting for the perfect pair of socks.  Over the weekend, when I was shopping at the dollar store, I spotted this pair of socks, and I was like “wow, this is the one!”.  It was cheap and it has the perfect pattern and color.  I bought the pair of socks, and the moment I got home,  I started to make my sock monkey.

I follow the instruction here, and TA-DA……

HERE COMES MY AWESOME SOCK MONKEY!!

While I was at the dollar store, I saw a few more pair of socks that I like, so I bought them all, and I am planning to make more sock plushies – sock elephant, sock bear and sock lion etc.~

It will probably take me some time to get to those, but I can’t wait to see my own collection of sock plushies :p

Knit Square/Cat Hats

Winter is approaching, and it’ time to knit for warmth again!

I had been holding back going to Michaels for a while because every time I go, I can spend a lot buying something new.  I already have TONs of yarns and MANY ongoing projects, and  I am running out of money and out of space,  BUT winter is coming, so um…  I guess I just have to go look at yarns. 🙂

So this year, I went to Michaels and the Caron Cake yarn really caught my attention.

The Caron Cake yarn has multiple colors within a ball where the same color runs very long before it changes to another color, so it creates stripes of colors for a project without having to change to another yarn and weave in ends.  Also, it is important to note that it has 20% wool in this.  It just make things that much warmer.  So what I did with this Caron Cake yarn I bought was make some quick and simple hats. I was able to  make three hats from it, all looking very awesome and unique with their own special sequence of colors.

These hats shown above are being sold in my shop, and I will be making more hats and putting them up for sale, but if you want to make your own, I have written down the pattern and you can find it in my “Free Patterns” section under the “Hats” category.

Crochet Onigiri Sushi Cat

17-08-07-17-08-41-199_deco

I have created a series of crochet sushi cats back in December when I had my first holiday market and was planning to write out my patterns then, but I had been too busy with work, new projects and vacations etc., that I couldn’t set aside any time to finish writing out my patterns.

FINALLY, I had no special plans this long weekend, and I have finalize one of my patterns (see below for this happy looking onigiri sushi cat 🙂 ).

And I will find some time to finalize my other patterns soon!

Genji!!

This is what I made last weekend because my son requested it.  Not so confident about this one, I was making it as I go, but my little one seems to like it, so I guess it’s fine. Maybe, just maybe…. if I have the time, I will try make a better one and write out the pattern.

Oh. And I just notice, it’s missing the sword. I guess that’s this week’s project…

Crochet Baby Converse!!

My first pair of crochet Converse!

I’ve always wanted to make a pair and finally got a chance to make this as a gift.  I didn’t write out a pattern this time because my pair of crochet Converse was based on different patterns I found on the internet.  I was taking out bits and pieces from different patterns depending on  my likes as I crochet. However, I do found this video very helpful.  If you wanted to crochet a pair of Converse, this is definitely a video you should look at!
