Creative hooking

I just need to say, I love crochet!  It is such a relaxing hobby that you can take anywhere and I have really fallen in love with it!

This week I have made this boy's beanie....
Using this tutorial here.
I love how it is called a Wave beanie, Ive made it to send as a gift to the USA and it really feels perfect to send something 'beach -inspired' from Queensland.

I also made myself this little mobile phone cover.... just made it up as I went along... first one was a fail, but this one fits perfectly!

What have you been making???

Love them both! I've been making Blossom a crochet skirt, painting wooden blocks and sewing pillowcase dresses.

Need to get some christmas gifts sorted though!

That's what I loooove about crochet - you can take it anywhere (unlike a sewing machine!!). Love the wave hat and your cute phone cover!!!

Love your crochet beanie and phone cover :) Just learnt to crochet too and I'm totally addicted - made my first beanie this week and I'm so proud! Your yarn colour choices are fab too :D

Great colour choices. Love your Christmas family shot too!

Fab beanie, that wave pattern looks brilliant and I love your colour choices.

Great little phone cover too..........I think I need to whip up a little cover for my phone now. It's looking a little bare.

Hi Leonie, that beanie looks brilliant! I love the wave pattern, and thanks for the link to the tutorial, I have been trying to find how to do that pattern for ages but didn't know what it was called. Have a great day! Julie:)

Kylie said...

How great is that mobile case. I noticed it yesterday:) Well done.

Love both your creations .... the hat is gorgeous. The wave pattern is really nice and I like the colour. Good to know that even though your first attempt at the phone cover failed,you gave it another go.
