Wow, so it has been 5 years since I last updated this blog.
A lot of things has changed. Now I have a nearly 5 years old son and a nearly 3 years old daughter.
So I suddenly want to start writing again. Maybe it won't be about knitting or crocheting anymore. We'll see.

Festival Rajutan Indonesia III

Hi there! Thank you for all of you who are still reading my blog even though it is not updated as often as I used to.

Well this time I've got big news for you. The Third Annual Festival Rajutan Indonesia!! It is the place where people from all over Indonesia come to meet fellow knitters and crocheters to share and know each other.

This year, it is held at Museum Bank Mandiri, Jakarta. From 16 - 17 July 2011. Yup, only 2 days. But we met a lot of people!!! There were talkshows, competitions, bazaar, exhibitions, trainings... so exciting!

Here's me at my stand, selling all sorts of craft materials and equipments.

Here's my helper and customers.

Here's me during the talkshow.

And here's the exhibitions!!! A lot of people made a lot of different things and we have the city of Jakarta in crochet and knitting!

For more pictures, feel free to browse my album at Facebook.

Baby Glove Crochet Pattern

Hey people... It's been a long time since I updated this blog. Been very busy with my new shop and all...
Anyway, I just had a new niece last week and I wanted to make her a baby glove, so I looked for a pattern. The one I got turns out to be too big for my yarn and hook so I modified it.
Well, I'm sure it's a very common pattern that you can get anywhere but I'm just gonna write it here anyway, even if only for my own notes.

Start with magic circle
Row 1: ch 3, dc 15 times (total 16), join with sl st
Row 2: ch 3, 2dc in every stitch, join
Row 3: ch 3, *2dc, dc* rep around, join
Row 4 : ch 3, dc around, join (if yours is not big enough, do another increase with *2dc, dc, dc*)
Row 5 - 10 : ch 3, dc around, join
Row 11 : ch 3, *dc decrease, dc* around, join
Row 12 - 13 : ch 1, sc around, join
Row 14 : *sc, sk 2, ch 3* around, join
Row 15 : sl st to first sp, ch 3, dc, ch 2, 2dc, *2dc, ch2, 2dc* in each sp around, join

Finish! Add a ribbon to the space so that you can tie it up, or else it'll fall off too easily.

Photos to follow! Don't have any yet... See ya next time!
