Chennai Weekend – Whats going on??

March 31, 2008

Nothing crafty goining on in the past few days as office is eating up my leisure time 😦
So this time I decided to blog about the things i made, that are in progress and a part of my stash.

giraffeeduck ling
“The girafee” is my favorite though “The Duck” gave me the confidence. I was so proud when i completed the girafee that i showed it to my collegues in office also.
Yarn Used: Local wrosted weight yarn.
Yarn amount: Half Ball – yellow (both the things combined)
Hook Used: 3.5mm
Remarks: These two amigurumi things i completed in 2 days. I caught the time between the housework and those precious moments before bedtime to complete these. They are quick to make and the assembling does take time 🙂

I forgot from where i picked up “The giraffee” pattern. “The Duck” was from a baby book.

fillet runner
This simple fillet was my first crochet attempt after school.
Yarn Used: Coats Knitting cotton.
Yarn Amount: 1   Ball – Pink
                    0.5 Ball – Cream
Hook Used: 2.5mm
Remarks: Never mind the combination of color   🙂

fillet table cloth
The fillet Table cloth was my second attempt.
Yarn Used: Coats Knitting cotton.
Yarn Amount: 2.5 Balls – Cream
Hook Used: 2.5mm
Remarks: The pattern was picked from internet. I am planning to add a border in contrast color.

The baby sweater was my first knitting attempt of a garment.
Yarn Used: Local Wrosted weight acrylic yarn
Yarn Amount: 6 Balls – 25 gms each – Grey.
Needles Used: Pony Brand – 6
Remarks: The pattern is on “Lion’s Brand” website called “Baby Kimono”. I did the math to suit my yarn and needles. Still some more knitting and I will be finished with my first sweater.

This yarn i bought long time back, but still didnt decide what to do.
I have a knit/crochet bag/tote in my mind, but i need a really inspiring pattern to start off 🙂
Yarn: Wrosted weight – unknown material – soft feel
Remarks: 1kg costs 250Rs.

In the comings days
1. I want to finish the sweater.
2. Start looking for a pattern for a tote.
3. Finish giving a border to the table cloth

before i start on a new project… ( but i know i will start of another before i can even think of :-))

Does anybody know where i can get leather in chennai? I am not talking about the finished peices but leather sold as per size.

    Can’t help you with the leather, but your FOs are beautiful! That kimono pattern is too cute. I think I might try the pattern out eventually, also. I haven’t worked up to wearables, yet. Love the rubber ducky! I think there’s a free pattern for one of those on Crochetvill, also.
