Cat ears crochet hat

“What? Yarn? But it’s almost summer!”

Oh, yeah, how north-hemisphere centered of you, my friend… Don’t forget that when it’s almost summer to you, it’s also almost winter somewhere else.

Anyway, I have too much yarn, and I saw this project and I just couldn’t resist 🙂

More socks

If you are looking for a quick project to crochet before winter is over, these comfy stay-at-home socks are a good way to give use to odd skeins that may have remained from bigger projects, and they also make great gifts.

One small skein like these ones from Flying Tiger stores makes for one sock for small woman’s feet (about 36 in Spain, which according to this website would be like a 5.5 in US and a 3.5 in UK)


Using this hairy yarn adds a plus of difficulty because you need to literally feel (with your fingers) where the stitches are, since it’s impossible to determine with your eyes where are you supposed to insert your hook next… This can be quite discouraging at first… but this also means it won’t show if you make any mistakes… 😉


The pattern itself is not difficult, and you can follow video instructions in my previous post about socks from (can’t-bellieve-how-quick-time-goes-by) two years ago.


Happy crochetting!


Origami dress birthday gift card

Wow! It’s been a while! I didn’t have the chance to blog much during my summer vacations, but now I’m back in the city and ready to return to my routine –or almost.

Today I bring you something quick and easy: an origami dress.


Sometimes we have to give money to someone for their birthday and money really is an ugly thing to give, so it’s always better to make a gift card or something nice as part of the present.

I made this for my sister in law’s birthday. We were told that she wanted a dress, but since those things are so personal, we thought a gift card and the money was a better option.

This is the tutorial I followed but there are many others out there.

I’m preparing something very cool for next week but I can’t post it yet because it’s a birthday present for my friend Marta who could be reading this post so -psssss-. All I can say is that it has glitter… and she is going to love it! 🙂
