Welcome to Pikay's Gallery

I'm a self-taught crocheter/knitter that's always hunger to learn more. A mammoth thank you to all fellow crocheter/knitter that took their time to post videos and written tutorial. It wouldn't have been possible without your contribution! THANK YOU!

Wow! Another year slipped by...how time flies when you're knitting :) It's obvious, I've been slacking on my blog update. Last post was 4/27/11! I'm officially an occasional blogger only. What I slack off in blog, I more than made-up in knitting and crocheting. Most of my projects are somewhat recent on Ravelry.

Major milestone for 2011:

Shelliyanni went live on 8/6/11. My first knitting pattern for sale.

All patterns here are for personal and charitable use only. Please do not sell the patterns or the finished project. Thank you for honoring this request.



Summer Booties

 

His Alex the Lion Winter Booties

I crochet this booty mirroring a winter booty that we bought from Wal-mart last winter. My 20 months old seems to love that booty. He would wear it even in this hot summer heat! Hence, I decided to make one for him not only because it's not so warm to wear, but also he is starting to out-grow the winter one. He definitely prefer this booties over his Toddler Crocs.

Hi Keshet,

I apologize for this VERY late reply! I just saw your comment today! Somehow I haven't been receiving notification from blogger when comments are posted. Therefore, I was unaware that there's comments pending.
The stitch count for the sole, rnd 4)is 58. I'll send u an email shortly. Thanks for your patience!
