Pinky sheep

I made Pinky for a friend who adores sheep. Working with the white yarn wasn't simple, but it turned out great. Pinky, like most babies, sleeps a lot. She also loves to cuddle with his mommy.

Santa stocking

My family and I will spend the Holidays in Thailand this year. Since we couldn't bring all my Christmas stuff here, I made this cute stocking for my son. The total length is 40 centimeters. I think Santa has quite the task cut out for him to fill it up.

Little bow

This tiny bow will be a nice touch for the baby sheep I'm currently working on. It gave me a great opportunity to practice my treble crochet stitches. It was a fairly easy and quick project.

Angie, the white bunny

The newest member of my little Zoo is Angie, the white bunny. She loves carrots and always carries at least one around. She also likes to play in the garden, but all the butterflies better watch out, because Angie's favorite hobby is making butterfly wing collage.

You can download the bunny's pattern for FREE on its designer's blog.

How to store?

As my crochet to-do list grows I needed something that will hold both my yarns and the smaller items (hooks, needles etc.). Since there's a one-year-old in the house, that something could never be a basket. But rather something I can close AND hide in the closet. Because, let's face it, if the little angel can't open something (s)he wants to, mommy will have to do it for him/her.

After careful consideration I decided it should be a bag. In addition to all the above-mentioned qualifications I will also be able to carry my stuff around easily. Since, I happen to live in Chiang mai, Thailand for the time being, and the city also happens to be a tourist paradise it was quite easy to find a suitable bag. Chiang mai has many handmade items to offer in its markets. After an hour of looking at various bags, I present you the winner:

And I found this cute little case for the small things:

In case you were wondering, yes, I love elephants.
