Weekend projects complete! June 7, 2010Posted by misscraftyfingers in Crafts, Crochet, Knitting.
I’ve been learning to knit for the past week. I started with a hat but that didn’t work out so well. The hat was way too big. I unraveled it sooooooo manyyyyyy times and it was still too big. lol. I guess I’m just not good at gauging sizes. 😛 or rather, too lazy to determine the gauge before I start a project.
Finally, I decided to be a little less ambitious and knit something smaller instead. I wanted to knit a mobile phone cozy. Again, with no gauge, I estimated the number of stitches for the phone cozy. And of course, it was too big! LMAO. In the end, I turned it into a water bottle pouch. I’m not done with the straps though. I’m crocheting the straps because I’m not sure how to knit it in. 😛 But, at least it’s a functional item. 😀
Anyway, I really wanted to make a new mobile phone cozy. The last one I made, while functional, was pretty damn ugly. 😛 hehehe. So I decided to make a new crocheted one yesterday. I used the bobble stitch (or puff stitch). It fits pretty snuggly. I like it! I’m already starting on the 2nd one in light brown.
That’s all for my latest craft work! So, what did you craft over the weekend? 🙂
