Crochet T-Shirt-Fabric Bag

IMG_1340What to do when you don’t feel like knitting or sewing… Used no pattern for this design..just started to crochet.

I had bought many years back in Switzerland some of the string yarn… now it was time to use it up.

Bought some more of T-Shirt fabric that I cut up…Hope to writ this pattern up shortly for any one that likes to crochet one bag too.

For the handles I used 2 of the same inexpensive Belts that I had extra holes added by a local shoe repair place.

Then just wove the belt straps in to the bag

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Easy Mesh Pullover

2016-06-24 09.04.37-1Wish I had bought more of this gorgeous cotton yarn when I was home last April in Möhlin. My mom and I found this in our local “Landi” in Möhlin. Called “Baumwollgarn Fil De Coton”a sport weight cotton great for many crochet or knit projects.
Hope one day the Landi will carry more of it again so I can get more of it.
It worked up beautiful for this Easy Mesh Pullover by Teresa Chorzepa.

Love the feel and look of the yarn and sweater. Used a hook size 3.5mm (E) and all of the 4 skeins (400 grams) I bought for a small/medium  but had to hook on for the larger size due to yarn.2016-06-24 09.04.40-1

Gerne hätte ich noch ein paar Kneuel  mehr von diesem wunderschönen Baumwollgarn das ich in Möhlin  im April in der Landi gekauft hatte.  Dieses ” Baumwollgarn Fil De Coton ” ist ideal für viele häkeln oder strick Projekte . Hoffe, dass eines Tages die Landi es wieder im verkauf haben wird, damit ich (oder Mutt,) mehr davon besorgen kann.  Ja auch meine Mutter hätte diesen pullover gern zum anziehen wie ich weiss.

 Einfach perfect für diesen  Netz Pullover von Teresa Chorzepa. Verwendet einen Häkel Größe 3,5 mm (E) und alle 4 Stränge (400 Gramm)  für eine kleine / mittlere Grösse musste aber wegen dem Garn auf die größere Massgröße Haken. Hab es nicht gern wenn alles so eng an liegt.

Lacy Cardigan

079Lacy Cardigan

A light fun pattern and ideal to wear over a strapless top or halter top.

You want your crochet work to show off. 075 (2)

The sleeves and back are crochet all in one piece and then at the sleeves section sewn together. Once that is done it gets easier. Just pick up the required stitches all around the body opening. Knitting in the round is easy now as it is a knit 2, purl 2, knit 2 continue to end …2013-10-16 13.14.56Lacy Cardigan 2016

 The Lace Cardigan pattern ..In Sizes Small / Medium and it is easy to adapt to larger size too. I’ll be working this pattern up again in my “KnitswissYarns” shortly and have pattern available again….Happy knitting

 HuuuuhHuuuuh……

This pattern is soooo much fun.
Available on Ravelry under Crochet Owl Hat (Newborn-Adult) by Sarah Zimmerman.
For this version I used some of  the Sirdar Calico in yellow for the beak and Sirdar Snuggly DK in white, black and blue for eyes and gray for the body and with hook size 5.0 mm (H).
I finished one in medium  and large size just to make sure it would fit just perfect for the little fellow for picture day….
We liked  it so much at my workplace that I crochet one more in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino

Teen Knitting Is A Huge Trend Today

I-Pod Cozie Owl I found on the internet

I am so happy to ready this article that my hubby sent me a view days ago. He is always on the look out for me to get new ideas in Knitting, Quilting, Home Decorations, Family, What is the newest Fashion…you name it he will find it for me.

So please have a look at this link I posted here It talks all about YESSS

“Teen knitting is a huge trend today”

And not just with girls…Yes the Boys are realizing they meet the girls if they learn to knit or crochet …how about that for a change….

http://voices.yahoo.com/teen-knitting-internet-has-made-grandmas-hobby-24274.html

(As per this Article and I just picked a view lines that popped for me in this article:)

“Books about teen knitting are flying off the shelves faster than ever before, and high school knitting clubs are popping up everywhere. Unlike many other crafts, knitting is very accessible and satisfying for beginners, which is one reason why teen knitting is suddenly so hip. Teen knitting is most popular with girls, but more and more guys are picking up the hobby too. From stylish and cozy caps to ultra-modern iPod cozies, teen knitting today is about much more than just sweaters.
Teen knitting clubs are a logical offshoot of this new trend. Although knitting is in some ways a solitary activity, being part of a community of knitters is a great way to learn new techniques and get inspiration for new projects.  The social aspect of teen knitting is a big reason why it is so popular. A lot of teen knitting is done by boys who want to make unique laptop covers, clothes that are the height of cool, or special gifts that any relative or girlfriend are sure to appreciate. The fact that teen knitting isn’t just a trend among girls really says something about how much gender roles have changed since grandma started making mittens.”

I Pod Cozie 4This is just to show you a view I-Pod Cozies that I found looking on the internet…really cool ideas. Some are Knit and some are crochet.
