Let's play badminton!

I love playing badminton. Once a week I will join the recreation club playing badminton together with my ex-colleagues. Now I would join my current colleagues. Oddly enough, it was really fun when me and my friends did not really know how to play it. We loves watching  the sport, but playing the game is totally a different story. Without official training, we taught each other, made fun of each other and had great laugh learning it together. We tried to imitate our favorite top world class badminton players and made blunders along the way. Imagine try to hit a smash but ended up hitting the air... and the shuttle dropped on your head.

Here's the badminton court I crocheted. I scaled down the actual court size and map it on an excel sheet. Basically I just did double crochet on each boxes.

Kiss Kiss Love Birds

It is from the "Happy Cute" crochet book by Annie Obaachan. This book is teaching about 25 Amigurumi Gifts to celebrate Special Occasions. So, last week I picked one which is Kiss Kiss Love Birds... haha..... the name was quite....

This is how the bird is supposed to look like.

This looks ok to me, though not as cute as the one in the book.
Ok lah tu.

10. Doily

Cotton Lace Yarn

I picked this guy (Cotton Lace Yarn) when I first excited about doing crochet and naively thought that I could work this guy too. LOL! I also have a small size crochet needle that I got from my mother since she no longer crochet for a very long time, probably close to 20 years now. When I bought the yarn, I purposely kept the label for my own reference. Yeah, it is in Japanese, but no worries. I can read some and the most important part is the numbers on the label. The cotton yarn is number 15 and the recommended crochet hooks size is 1.0 - 0.9 mm. That's about it! :-D

This year, looking forward to a positive turn out of my crochet works, I took a challenge to handle this yarn, hence a doily.     

~ doily, doily, doily ~
The tutorial provided by Sheruknittingcom (@Sheruknitting) is actually not a doily but a lace tape (I'm not familiar with the term) which consist of 2 parts. I completed the first one and it looks like a very nice doily to a glass that I am currently working for a crochet flower arrangements. 
nice for this glass

Well, this year I'm looking forward to learn some other things that I could crochet with this yarn. Wish me luck!  Thank you.
