Crafting, crochet, crocheting, knitting

Working on my own pattern

Hi, folks.. I finished the Legend of Zelda bag for my best friend and gamer, x45x. He hasn’t come over to get his presents yet. 😦 He’s been spending about 8 hours a day streaming all his favorite games. (Find him on Twitch after 4pm everyday) Twitch.tv/x45x

Right now, I got a slight cold, but I thought I’d drop a line or two to tell you about my latest project. Since I made the fore-mentioned bag above, I learned the Tunsian or Afghan crochet stitch. This stitch is awesome, because it is closely related to knitting. I have yet to get the hang of knitting. I tried a few weeks ago, but it was to no avail.  Anyway, I decided I need to crochet hook case more my long tunsian needles. I’m in the process of learning a few things, but I’m going to make this really pretty case with a flower on it. I’m going to use the normal tunsian stitch, knit-stitch and, possibly the puff stitch for the flowers. I’ve drawn the items on graph paper and trying to see how I can do with this made up pattern. It’s my first made up pattern.

the next thing I’m going to make is my companies mascot, Dino the VIPKID  dinosaur. I can’t wait to see what to do with him. I’m going to have to really think long and hard how to make him. 🙂 I guess I can steal parts from Baymax and Yoshi to create him. 🙂

I’ll try to post my patterns on my Ravelry page soon.

So nice to give you an update on my crafts. See you soon!

Wildlife origami

Well everyone for Christmas I got a lot of cool things I can’t wait to share with you. One is my Martha Stewart knitting loom and then a friend got me a wildlife origami set.

I’m having some difficulty with the origami instruction booklet. I’ll be posting a book review at bookluvrblog.wordpress.com shortly. It will be awhile before I post a video on my experience. I may have to do some YouTube  research to get the patterns right. I’m more of a visual learner.lol 🙂

Second hand, I love my Martha Stewart knitting loom. It’s going be great fun. I have yet to make something with it. I need to get the hang of it first before jumping into my frist project. 🙂

More to come in the new year. Thanks for following and your support. I appreciate my fans.

Happy 2016, everyone!!!
