Learning the art of crocheting

8:37 PM

Maybe I'm bored or whatever but I'm still sticking to my new year's resolution of doing and learning new things for this year. I have shared earlier here how to make my own fashion accessories (just the basic) and now crocheting picked my interest. I know a lot of people probably learned about crochet during their primary years in their home economics class; but screw me, I skipped it by paying another pal to do it for me! Smart, eh? Anyway, I really don't do girly things when I was smaller.. smaller ok because I'm still young.  LOL. Thanks to google who knows everything so I started the project of learning the art of crocheting. 

So how did I start? Well, it's a little bit hard to find tools for crocheting. I'm just lucky that there's available crocheting needles in SM department stores. I got mine in the "Notions" section in SM North EDSA, it's located in 3rd floor near counter 34. For my first project I did a round scarf. I used yarns for this and not crochet thread. For the needle size, I got Size 8. Since I don't know whether I'll be successful, I only bought two sets of yarns. I picked colors brown and blue. The brand is Monaco acrylic yarn and it costs Php24.75. Lucky for me, I got the technique fast and I really find crochet a fascinating activity, especially when I was able to made the first lock, and the rest was history. 

Getting started with crochet

But since I'm never contented with few colors, I braved Divisoria just to find the cheapest yarns in Tabora. The hell with the scorching heat, the noise and a lot of people in Divisoria. I got what I want. Guess what, from the Php 24.75 in SM malls, I got these yarns Php 10 each. Amazing right!!!! To get to Tabora, you just need to walk through the street of Claro M. Recto (Opposite direction the U-belt area) until you reach the Tabora, it's next to Ylaya, the textile capital of Divisoria. 

Feeding my addiction

So for my first finish product, I got this blue round scarf. Well, I'm planning to give this round scarf to my Korean friend Miniee when hopefully, next month when I go to Korea.

    1. Hello! If you are facing Recto Ave. nasa left side mo sya. Hindi sya katulad ng tela na naka bargain at nakalatag, may sarili syang stall. Medyo nahirapan din ako maghanap kala ko kasi nagkalat sya but in fact 3 stores lang ata nakita ko pero super cheap like 10 pesos lang sya. :) Goodluck sa projects mo! :)
