Here is another wonderfully simple but very cute crochet project for the weekend. My wife made these to give away as gifts and they really are useful for dusting small objects. The pattern comes from a Japanese crochet book. Until the next post, happy crocheting.

Lee-Kuo made this a couple of years ago, we filled it with lots of sweets. As you can see, it’s not that big, but the colours and the snowflake give it a very special feel. After he finished this one he made another which is twice the size.

Here is another simple piece of crochet. Lee-Kuo made this because it looked so cute in a Japanese crochet book. Just recently he said he felt like doing some more crochet, so let’s find out what he makes.

Crochet poodle

This is another one of those cute cuddly dogs found in a Japanese crochet book. Originally Lee-Kuo began making it but couldn’t find his place in the crochet because of the special yarn so he just made the body and head. Eventually my wife completed the special yarn and it looks great.

Japanese crochet dusters

By now you must have realized we have lots of Japanese crochet books, they have many wonderful cute animals and ideas. These hand dusters are one of those cute ideas that my wife liked and so she made quite a few different versions.

What a wonderful day we had. Just as the sun was rising we set out for the two and a half hour journey with a friend to Kaoshiung. The purpose was to visit summer camp students and collect Starbucks business cards. On our arrival we had a traditional chinese breakfast and walked around a park. We walked a long way, collecting Starbucks cards as we went. In the evening we visited a night market and ate stinky tofu. It was a fantastic day and we will definitely return to visit our friends in Kaoshiung.

Crochet bear with roses

This is another example of Lee-Kuo’s excellent crochet work. He found the pattern in a Japanese book and simply crocheted away. The first one he made was sold for his iMac savings. Everyone has said how cute and cuddly they are.
