crafts:: crochet bows

good morning world!! :) 

i've recently learnt how to crochet!! my sweet coworker, who taught me how, and me formed a little 'stitch and bitch' group! we plonk ourselves with a hot cuppa coffee at roppongi hills starbucks and with a little blankie on our laps, we reclined into our overstuffed couches and crochet our afternoon away! i can totally see myself doing this in 80 years! :)

 since im still practicing my basic knots, i've made a whole bunch of these!!


mini squares!

and made them into sweet little bows!
i still don't know what to make with so many of them.. perhaps little hair bows, hair ties, embellish my winter hat, a bracelet.. a corsage?


meanwhile, can't resist a man in bowtie!!
(and a little leftover carrot sauce in his moustache!)

p.s. happy lunar new year to the folks celebrating!
huat ah! :)
