Eggy Piggy

A belated Happy 2010! A little late, I know but better late than never, right? :D

Oh, I finally made a trip to Spotlight and Daiso the other day. There were so, so many things that I had wanted to buy but couldn't carry them all home. I bought some craft supplies and also this:

I like stuff made of wood and so I had to buy this wooden box even though I didn't know what I shall use it for (not to mention it only costs S$2!). But I'm sure I'll be able to find some use for me, I'm very good at that (especially when I wanted something desperately) :)

Now, I use it to house my crochet needles! Mum bought me these crochet needles many, many years ago...probably more than 15 years ago?

I haven't crocheted for a long time as I couldn't find any nice patterns in diagram format. You see, I have problem reading those crochet instructions in written form.

But last Christmas, with nothing better to do, I decided to try crocheting again but this time using a written pattern and these were what I made:

*Hello, I'm little Eggy Piggy*

*I like to eat apples*

*This weird yellow apple, like me, was born on Christmas day*

*Well, I'm off market, to buy more apples...Ta ta!*

Little Eggy Piggy and weird yellow apple turned out a little wonky but I like them :). Now I have no more fear, will continue to try to crochet some other stuff using written patterns!
