It’s been a while since my last post, and I have been feeling guilty for slacking off. Finally I’ve picked up the crochet hooks again and made the Tunisian Ear Warmer (Click here for the free pattern) for the Yarn Club Fundraising. I used Bernat Baby Big Ball Sport Yarn (Color: Blossom) and a 4 mm crochet hook. I followed the free pattern but since I am using a different yarn and a different size hook, I made more than 55 rows as stated in the pattern. I started with chaining 17 (same as the pattern), and crocheted until it measures 20″ long. I made this for a 9-year old, but you can measure the head size and minus 1″ in order to get a better fit (since the yarn will stretch). I like the Tunisian stitches very much and this is what it looks as when completed! Hope you will like it too!
I recently joined the newly formed knitting club at work and we decided to crochet/knit small items that we can sell at work to raise funds to donate to a charity. Here’s the first project I did for the club from one of the patterns I mentioned in my previous post (or click here), and it’s sold immediately!

After showcasing the hair accessories at the flea market a couple weeks ago, I need to focus on updating my etsy store as well as the facebook fan page. The name is now finalized – 2Kidsland Krafts. I am still working on publishing more items, so please check back from time to time. Once I am done with the updates, I will need to get ready for all the craft shows that will be held in November. After all, it’s almost May and I have no idea how the 4 months in 2013 have swung by so quickly….
So if you are interested, please take a look at my 2 sites….Feedback and comments are welcome! Happy Crafting!
