Tunisian Crochet Patterns

I’m currently working on an Entrelac Tunisian Crochet bag as a shop sample.  So I was looking for free patterns for tunisian crochet (as there are not a lot of books on the subject), and found a great site:

Crochet Kim – has a great links page full of patterns in tunisian crochet.

Happy Crocheting!


Machine-Knitted String Bag

Thanks so much Chanti for helping me make my machine-knitted string bag!  We did it together on my Empisal KH680 using some 5 ply cotton with a metallic thread that I got from the bargain bin at Spotlight – and we only used 1.5 x 50g balls!  Wow!

I’m going to make some more using Lily Sugar ‘n Cream on my Bond Ultimate Sweater Machine.  I’ll let you know how that goes.  Merry Christmas!

Is this the last Panda Zoomy in existence?

Ever since another blogger Salihan Crafts asked me for a substitute for Panda Zoomy, I have been obessed with this yarn!  It has now been discontinued so it’s been a race against time to find the last remaining balls and did I hit thejackpot on the weekend!

K-Mart Arana Hills, Brisbane, has now been cleaned out of their stock of Zoomy – for $2 a ball!!  Considering I’ve seen this yarn for $7 a ball at Spotlight, I could not believe my eyes!  $2 a ball – yippee!  I’d bought the pattern book some weeks before and so I was thrilled to have found enough to knit all these cute outfits for my kids – only problem is – I can’t knit !  LOL!  So I will have to pay someone to do it – any takers??

Zoomy Pink – colour 37 – 10 balls

Zoomy denim – Colour 50 – 22 balls

Zoomy Blue and Green – Blue Colour 53, 3 balls and Green – Colour 72 – 1 ball
