Still Hyped!

When you have so many yarns and so many hooks and you have just realized it, maybe you’d be as hyped as I am.
It was a new challenge for me to try making a hooded bolero. Without actually knowing how to make one I just patterned it from one of my hooded blouses.
From friday, in between building flex projects, waiting for the server to load, inside the 30 minute ride in the mrt to home. From saturday morning til just before watching GI Joe.
My hands were already throbbing in pain. But I did not mind. And I was so happy finishing it. I wore it during the barkada movie hang out. 🙂

I am now trying to write the instructions of this clothing (and draw the pattern too!!!)

Coined from Rachel’s Daisy Square

It was during those times that all i have was misconception on what DC is. I have this pattern on my computer for a long time.. can’t find the decency of time to sit back and crochet so, it was only during christmas vacation that i paid much attention to it… The author of the pattern copied it from a bedsheet and made it into a skirt... It was my intention.. to make a skirt too, just like what she did.


However, work (again) took control of my time and i was enthusiastic on finishing a project then… so my hobbies were set aside come new year. It was only late feb 2008 that i remembered some unfinished crochet.

And while i’m doing it, i decided to make a blouse instead.

And I am so proud of being able to do it

to rachel, pardon me for not being able to follow your pattern.. I wasn’t able to understand it. I only relied on the pictures of the stitches. Thank you for such a wonderful pattern.

It was a shame for a crochet enthusiast

I never had a real formal education about crocheting.. I mean, my mother only taught me of the basic stitches ch (the chain), sc (single crochet) and dc (double crochet).

From then on, i believed i was really doing dc correctly. You know, 2ch = 1 dc. And so i made all of my crochet projects basing on these stitches i know..

When internet has become a regular thing, i am able to browse through sites on different patterns.. Patterns = pictures of finished products, because i really do not understand the abbreviations of stitches so i rely on the pictures of crocheted patterns, and try to do them based on what i know.

Since, i only have time to browse the net for patterns, I copy them to word then print them at home. So when i get home and read the instructions, i got confused.. it’s like speaking greek to me… (:D)

It was only a month ago when i tried to download a book about crochet (and i really read the first few pages about basic stitches) which taught me what a dc really is. The single chain i do is the real dc! Shame on me…


Imagine all the mistakes i’ve committed on all the patterns i followed… It’s no wonder it felt like i’m missing stitches…

Loving Crochet

I started crocheting when I was in grade II. My sisters all had their projects about crochet for their Home Economics class and I just can’t wait to try.

My mother was my first teacher. She taught me how to make a single chain.

It was fun and it was (I then thought) easy so I asked her to teach me more. And so I learned other basic stitches but I cannot make something pretty and usable… Almost all my first works were circular since I cannot make uniform stitches.

Our neighbor taught me how to make the granny square. It was then I thought that I could make my own patterns and motifs then attach them with another…

Up to now, I enjoy crocheting… It relieves me of tensions and frustrations.. I’ve done several projects before and I have given them to friends and relatives.. I keep my recent ones, though…
