花畑 Field of Flowers

時間がある時に少しづつデイジーを編んでみました。 I crocheted daisies a little at a time when I had time.

気がついたら、ダイニングテーブルが花畑になっていました。 The dining table was full of flowers before I knew it.

鍋つかみです。でも、主に電子レンジでお茶用に水を沸かすときによく使います。 They are pot holders. But we use them for a variety of purposes such as holding a cup after boiling water for tea time.

また、朝、オートミールを作る時。 Or I use it when I make a bowl of oatmeal for my breakfast.

その他、タッパウエアに入れた残り物を電子レンジでチンして、そのまま食べる時にも。 Or, we use them a lot when we eat leftovers in Tupperware containers.

友人に差し上げたtくて編んでいたら、もっともっと綺麗な色の組み合わせがありそうで、気がついたら20枚も。4枚はすでに差し上げました。 I wanted to give them to my friends. I discovered nice color combinations while I was crocheting. So I tried new colors for the next daisy, and more new colors for more new daisies. I made 20 of them and gave away four already.

こちらは表です。These are the front faces.

こちらは裏。 These are the back faces.

どれも自分で編んだから気に入ってます。これからどれをどなたに差し上げようか考えるのも楽しいです。 I love them all because I made them. It will be very difficult to decide which one I am going to give to who, but that is part of the fun!










Hawaii trip addendum: crochet

20130814-IMG_0683 20130814-IMG_0679

The plane ride took about 5.5 hours from San Francisco Airport to Kailua-Kona airport.
So what do you do during the ride in the plane?
Ever since I have discovered the joy of knitting/crochet, I couldn’t think of any other things to do but this. This is the result from the flights.

It’s a pot holder, about 7 inches diameter.  Crochet 2 flowers, then stitched together with a different color yarn.  It’s a perfect mini project to work in a 5 hours plane rides.  The pattern was from this book.

It’s pretty and so useful, I use it everyday for carrying a microwaved frozen dinner or any heated dishes, and then place it on my desk as a hot plate mat.  As a matter of fact, I am using now, writing this blog while eating dinner.  It adds a cheerful feeling to my desk.  (of course, I use my dining table… every once in a while when I have guests.)

*** Whew~, this is it, all about Hawaii 2013 trip.  Thank you for reading the lengthy blog entries.
