another vlad…

Vampires seems to be the trend. I enjoy making this one. It was a quick project. This one, no modification, followed exactly as per pattern. Size approximately 38-39cm tall, using 100% 8ply acrylic yarn, but this yarn is silky soft acrylic, hence the texture is finer, thus doll turn out

purple vlad

I’m so loving this Vlad the Vampire. He is made of 100% acrylic yarn, using hook size 4.0. It was a pleasant surprise when he turned out larger than indicated in the pattern. I added a little extra to the pattern by crocheting a belt around his waist.   I

Another custom made doll. Kira the Kanga in purple-yellow. Pattern by lalylala, crochet by yours truly (me!!!!). I’m loving the pastel mixed color. Although some may say it’s not that appealing. But it is indeed pretty. Made with 100% acrylic yarn, 8 ply. Kira is such a loving Mama.  

Hello!

Hello friends, i’m starting to blog here again. Life have been pretty crazy these past 2 years, with all the hoo hahs that has been happening around me. But it’s okay, I take it in with a stride and that makes me into a stronger person. I’ve been crazy about amigurumi since a few

Sunday lunch

I’ve been craving for Korean BBQ for the longest time.

Where I live, there are a few well known Korean BBQ restaurants which are good. Oneof them is this shop called Korean House in SS2. That’s where we went.

I love the kimchi soup there, not too spicy, and enough sourness in it.

I particularly look forward to their side dishes (banchan, ??).

Korean restaurants are so generous with banchan, they keep refilling them for free. It’s a culture thing. Love the kimchi, and the lotus roots especially. And so colourful.

And they always serve either some pancake or steam egg dish,  and they will say it’s their complimentary dish. We got the steam egg this round.

This dish – kimchi rice cake, is a must try. Expensive dish RM30 for a plate with no meat (just fish cakes), but it’s something different. I usually don’t order this but decided to have it this round. Super delicious as I was super hungry, but my personal preference would be to have it slightly more spicy!

Here are the bbq dishes.

and pork.

By far this is one of the Korean restaurant I know that serves bbq duck. This one that came was overcooked! It would have been fantastic if it was done medium rare.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed my meal so much and we even had some leftovers for my friend’s dog Jacky!

T’shirt yarn

This I made.

To crochet a sleeping mat.

For my lovely Lab.

I got some help though, using these tutorials here and and here. Thank yous!!

T’shirts are from Big Aeon, RM7 each. Bought the largest size I could find XL and XXL.

I wanted to use recycled t’shirts but the color wasn’t right, the material wasn’t right (not the jersey type), and they are mostly not plain and with seams on the side.

Each skein is 1 t’shirt.

Can’t wait to start the rug… or mat…

Chevron cozy for tablet

This is my 2nd project from my latest yarn haul. A chevron cozy/purse for my 8″ tablet (Samsung Note 8).

1411264281961

I love the chevron and the combination of colors. Earthy colors catches my attention.

I made the stitches tight, used a 4.0mm hook on a 8ply worsted weight acrylic yarn. I think this yarn actually calls for a 5.0mm hook.

I was inspired by this pattern on Lion Brand’s website, but didn’t actually follow their written pattern. Made it up as I go along. Nevertheless here’s the link to their pattern click here

I also inserted lining, all for the love of my tablet… scratch proof!

I am happy crocheteer!!!!!

 

Atardecer Shawl

This is the shawl I made from the Spotlight yarns I bought. Completed in the same weekend I bought the yarn (it was a long weekend, we had Malaysia day on 16 September Tuesday, and I took the Monday off).

It only took less than 1 skein, so I have 4 skeins left. I guess I overestimated and besides I didn’t have a pattern in mind when I bought the yarns.

The good news is that I have lots of pretty purple yarns to make something else 😉

I’m loving this shawl, and the color’s really pretty.
