It's getting cold here in So. Md. I have started the process to put away summer clothing and take out the winter clothing. I have finished it in my daughter's wardrobe! Oh Boy! I can't believe 2 little persons have so many clothing!! Anyway, because of all these cleanings around the house, I found my yarns which are hidden in the closet. These stash yarns have been there for half year and I started to search a pattern that is easy to crochet and only eat up 2 skeins of yarns. After all, I think scarf or hat is the only option I have! So I picked up the 6mm hook and once again, sitting in front of the TV, have a cup of green tea, like an old lady, start crocheting! lol.. yes, i feel old :P I love this pattern by Khebhin Gibbons, at first, I don't familiar with the writing, it's a little bit confusing. That's why I tried to use my stash cotton yarn to try it first, after a while, I have a better idea of what the pattern works, then I changed back to my wool/cotton mixed yarn and the result is fabulous! I wasn't using the greatest yarn in the world, these only some yarns I picked up in JoAnn, however, it did give me what I want, a warmy, elegant and beautiful scarf! After I finished this scarf, now I want to make more scarf for my families as Christmas present, yes, it's that time of year again, I need to think, think, think what to make/buy/crochet for my families! How about you?

Last weekend I have been trying to create something cute, of course, with my talent, you can see the picture, what you see is what you get, I am not very good at it!! hahahahahaha! I tried to crochet something with a piece of tofu in my mind, however, after I finished crochet it, it looked like a tofu with a hat, or a white pottery, so I named this little guy Tofu master~! I think I am just too hungry for some Chinese Tofu which used to wrapped by a piece of white cloth, the tofu texture is so smooth, heat it up by steaming it in a wok, add a bit of cooking oil, light soy sauce and a few slices of gingers, yummy. That's how my mom used to cook it! It's so nice! Wait a minute, I shouldn't talk about food here, but I can't help it!!!! By the way, the blue comical eyes is a new stock I am going to put in my store! It's 8mm blue comical eyes! :) They are just the cutest thing!

This little brown chick is going to be a swap in Ravelry.com. Before I crochet anything, I have this idea of making something that will fit into fall decorations! At first I wanted to crochet a bird, but then I realize it's not as easy as I thought since I crochet it without any pattern. I started this amigurumi with magic ring and then when I felt enough height of the body I stopped and added the eyes, mouth and wings. This is the first critter that I haven't follow any pattern! Hurrah for me! :) I am not a very creative person, so I always follow pattern. Now since I have crochet this little lovely birdie, I have more confident to crochet something else!! This is the front of the chick The side of the chick, she is looking at you! This is the back and tail of the brown chick, I used the yarn sew from the middle of the bottom through the back and loop back to the bottom again, tied 2 knots and then went through the head of the chick, tied another 2 knots to form hair, that's why she got 2 pieces of hair sticking out of her head! :)

Finally I finished another amigurumi - little chick. It may not look like one, but it meant to be one! :P I just started from a magic ring, I haven't followed any pattern, that's why the chick's body may not look right, but I am quite satisfy with the result. I also sew the bottom and tail with a few stitches to make it sticks out a little bit, and end up giving this little critter 2 pieces of hair! I used 6mm orange eyes here, which usually it's not easy to match with yarn colors, but it did give this little critter fit my fall decorations very well. :)
