I love crochet. I find it simple and have been able to do it with ease, unlike knitting. I learnt crochet at school and the first thing that I crocheted was a poncho. Then some hairbands and other random stuff that are not worth a mention.
I am adding pics of things that I crocheted in the recent past (2009 to 2012). Of course, there are quite a few unfinished projects which I don’t think will ever get completed because I was overambitious when I started them and now I am too lazy to start off where I left.
First among the finished ones was a sling bag for my brother-in-law’s wife.
Next was a rose with the leftover red yarn.
My family felt that the sling bag was looking great (low standards, I admit) and encouraged me to do more. So, in early 2010, I did a giraffe for my brother-in-law’s daughter as a gift for her fourth birthday. I crocheted the body, the legs and the tail individually and sew all the pieces together. Then I stuffed it with sponge, added fringes for the mane, a wiggly eye on either side and stuck brown felt pieces on top to finish it.
Crochet fever continued in the later part of 2010 as well. I was pregnant at that time and crocheted a hooded baby blanket using yarn of my favourite colour blue. I got a baby girl in January 2011 but we still used the blue blanket. This is a picture of her in the blanket; she was two days old at that time.
My brother-in-law and his wife were expecting their second child in March 2011, so I made a baby blanket for them too. This one was made with yarns of three different colours.
I got some yarn from my brother-in-law in 2012. I made a scarf for his first daughter.
This one is a silly crochet thing that I made; this was actually my last finished project. We had bought a 16-inch hello kitty at Build-A-Bear in Hillsdale, CA for my daughter who was almost 2 years old at that time. We decided to give a change of clothes to the kitty after bringing it home. So, I made a something similar to a frock for the doll. Here it is:
That’s it about crochet for now. In case I ever get to complete my unfinished projects, I will post pictures here.
