Crocheted Bows

Hey guys, in the hunt for easy crochet patterns I found this great site with all kind of crochet projects to do.
It`s and has an abbreviation chart too, so if you are a beginner like me it`s very helpful.

Anyways, I told myself I should start with something easy and what could be easier than a cute little crocheted bow, so I did a couple to get started:

You can find the tutorial and pattern here, I tried it out with different weights of yarn and that`s how I got the different sizes:

They are plenty of other great pattern there, you should really explore the site if you are interested in crocheting.
Gotta go, I have to learn some more, I have exams coming up :|

Wish me luck,

Post-Birthday Excitement

"Diamonds are a girl's best friend" - they say, well in my case it`s not so true. You must be wondering what am I talking about?

So yesterday was my birthday and yay I got the best gift ever from my boyfriend. Of course I had to share, even though there is not so much to share yet, but there will be as soon as I get to use these beauty right here:

Guess you could rephrase to "Glue-guns are a crafty girl`s best friend". :P
I also got something else really cool and crafty, but it`s not quite finished, so I`ll show you some other time.

Bye bye,

Learning to crochet

I`ve started to learn the technique of crocheting. A dear friend got me started and now I can`t stop, I must admit, it`s very addictive. And it`s not helping that you can find so many patterns and tutorials on the Internet. Hehe! The only path blocker is deciphering those crochet terms... Oh, well I`ll just have to get it together and learn them because I`ve already have my list of "Things to crochet" put together and I`m not giving up on any of them!

Here is a peak at the craft desk (recently crochet desk :P):

Have a great day everyone!
