Crochet Granny Squares: WIP

Above are some granny squares I have crocheted for my "A Granny A Day" plan. The more I make them, the more I love, so much, very much, nearly be addicted...! :) I always try to make one a day for my different projects (but sometimes I did not, hix), and now it becomes my WIP project (ah yes, for those who wondered: WIP = Work In Progress).I also have a plan of joining them. A granny-bag first, and then a blanket with shell edging, and perhaps something else, any plan can be changed, who knows! But you see, they are cool, although they are spread out or stacked, aren't they?
The pattern for these grannies comes from Attic24, she made a great tutorial for this. I also love the other patterns of hexagons and ripples... Once visit her blog, you will see a rainbow! Thanks for sharing, Lucy!

Crochet Shell Sweater

Hi, there! It's too long since my last post, I was too busy and miss blogging so much! Thanks for stopping by my blog and hope you enjoy it!

This sweater is for my Mom, I am so happy I finished it, after nearly 6 months letting it a WIP project at room corner due to my laziness! I promised to myself this time I have to get it done as soon as I can, and after more than two weeks of patience, and of love, at last it has been completed! I love how it fixes my Mom as well! Phew...! Thanks God! :)

The pattern for this sweater is from shell stitch and so easy to make.
I used 3.75mm crochet hook and cotton yarn.

Do you think the pattern is so pretty? I love it so much. I also uploaded the charts for this sweater just in case.

Disappointed crochet day!

Next week is my close friend's birthday, and I love to give her a special handmade gift. I decided to make a drum-bag, was found on internet and it's really a lovely pattern. I used all my Sunday to crochet with hope of nice present... And the result, you know, I just wanna throw it away!!!

Although I know the yarn quality delivered is not as my wish when placing order, it's not soft as the ads, so stiff and the color is much darker, I tried with patience to get it done. But the more I tried, the more I felt badly let down!

I called the yarn shop and they promised to change another kind of yarn for me within a week. I will return them all, including the "drum-bag", if possible, huhhhhh...!!!

Anyway this is also an experience for me, and for any experience, we always pay bid! :)
