Craft: 3 ideas on how to store your yarns ball

Hi everyone! Sorry I’ve been busy moving to my new house and packing my stuff. So now im back with another post “how to store your yarns balls”.

Recently I’ve been planing how to organize my room and because I have too many stuff like mostly all crafts tools etc, I need to think how to organize it neatly and easy for me to access also. So I search online for some storage boxes, basket etc. I couldn’t decide like which is the better idea. But I did found a few ideas maybe you can check this out if you also have the same doubt as me. 🙂

This wooden board is kind of cool and it’s really organized well with colors. With one look you feel it’s pretty right ! I’m quite worry will it cause dust in it. This is one of my main concern. I’m still not sure yet. Haha

This one looks better to me cause it cover up and can store a lot of yarns if you have a lot. Maybe I can consider this one ya?

Last one I found is a crochet basket or whatever basket it is. I feel this is good too. Cause it’s easier to access. Best is with wheels or maybe a cover on top. So that maybe it won’t get dust easily? And if you don’t have that much yarns, this is perfect for your organize.

These are the 3 ideas I found so far. Please feel free to share with me your ideas too. I’m glad to share.

Happy reading !

Crochet: Slouchy Beanie Hat for Beginner

I did another crochet project – A slouchy style beanie hat for beginner, This is another beginner crochet and its easy to do. If you love to wear beanie like me, you will defiantly love this hat.

Usually beanie is just normal with various crochet stitches made. But this slouchy hat turns out a different feel, a bit slouchy and loose type. There is no special stitches in this project, it’s just build with basic stitches.

I use a yarn which I don’t know the brand of the yarn but is about 4-5mm hook size. The yarns is on promo pack so it came without the brand on it but the quality is good.

Difficulty level

The difficulty level for this project is, actually it that hard to do, as long you know all the basic stitches, you are good to move on by referring at the pattern. Just have to be patient and defiantly need some time to complete it. Sit down with a cup of tea, and pattern guide and do it slowly.

Hooks and Tools

I used a 6mm hook size, cause is a adult size and the size is great!

Experience in process

The whole experience I would say its fun. And to be honest, is very hard for me to be very consistently to finished a project but I really tried very hard to keep it up and at the end I keep tell myself to focus, I keep tell myself that ” I want to wear it for Seasons.” Ya that’s sound funny, I know. Cause with Singapore super hot weather, I won’t have the chance to wear it either. Ha ha. But I can just do it as a practice.

Tips:

  • I always aimed for promotion pack yarns, even if it’s not branded which I preferred but I will use it as a practice instead.

I always shop for yarns and sometimes I don’t even know what type of yarn to buy but I just want to buy that particular yarn cause its feels so soft… nice to touch and especially the COLOURS. Creamy pink is my favorite colors. End up keep one bucket of yarns. Haha.

Hope you like this post sharing for slouchy beanie hat. Soonest will create the pattern and hope to have your support ^^.

Happy Crochet-ing!

Crochet : Practice log – Granny Stitches


Let’s talk about Granny stitches. I refer to the video in craftsy which I always used the site and I find it very useful and it’s really helps me a lot.

Because I’m not a well planned person and I always half done person. But this time round I’m so into it and I will push myself to keep finish up my projects goals for this year.

So, I did my very first granny stitch in rows. Mainly there are two type, in rows and squares. I can say it’s fun to do and I really like granny stitches, is good to use for clothes like vest, or maybe a sofa cover or even a blanket if you like.

There is no difficulty in doing these stitches as long you know the basics, you can move on to this step. And you will find it a lot easier to do.

Give it a try and feel free to share with me your experiences in doing crochet!

Hello! Good day everyone !

I’m back for another post ! Finally I’ve done my second practiced project for my cowl. It was a simple project and it’s very easy to complete jusy that I’ve been busy with some other stuff so I delayed. Apologize for the long delay.

I love how the finishing turns out and I’m satisfied with my own work. Sadly there are some mistakes which I didn’t realize and I found out at the end of the project.

This project I made turn out too big cause I tot the size wasn’t right if it’s too small. It’s ok I will just take it as a practice and make another actual one sooner for my next goal 🥰.

I felt a little disappointed actually but I told myself it’s ok, just take it as a practice. If you happen to make the same mistakes as me, just keep on practice and it will be perfect.

Is a good practice thou, will be doing another same but actual one again 😇. If you like my project and want me to do out a pattern, you may comment me and I will create one maybe in the future depends on how many people request🤪. Hope to have your support and looking forward for the upcoming project. Check out my next post soon!

Hello! Good day! Here is another post that I’ve done crochet a headband. This project is for Totally for beginners! And of course to complete learning all the basic first, in order to know how to do this with follow along video. Is not that hard actually. Compare to the first time I do this without any knowledge and just follow blindly is totally different.

I getting more and more inspired and keep look out for project to do it by myself. You can find a group of friends who is interested and get along to create projects and have fun!

For this headband, I finally get the correct type of yarn and hook size.

Tips: For thicker yarn, Can use a bigger size hook. So the product will turn out nicer without gap. For thin yarn, to use a smaller size hook. but the size of the hook can’t be too much different from the yarn info tab.
