Quick & Easy Crochet Scarf

My second Skillshare class is published: Simply Crochet – Quick and Easy Scarf. This scarf is gender netural and looks great on everyone. I will teach you the basic of crochet including slip knot, chain stitch, slip stitch and how to weave in the ends. Enroll now.

If you just want a copy of this simple and easy pattern, grab it at my Ravelry store.

My two little girls are both making their own in different colors with their choices of yarns. My oldest loves this scarf when she modeled it for me, so we went to the store and let her pick out her own yarn to make one herself . Little sister saw it, sure wanted to join the crochet club and picked her own yarn too.

Happy crocheting!

Simply Crochet – Finger Crochet Scarf

After weeks of planning, filming and editing, my first class “Simply Crochet – Finger Crochet Scarf” is finally published. In this class, I will teach you how to crochet with finger, no hook needed. It was a quick and easy project. Super bulky yarn was used and you know it means this shouldn’t take long to finish. Join my class by clicking here.

In this class, students will learn the basic of crochet. Instead of using a crochet hook, they will learn how to use fingers to crochet.

Things you need for the class:

Heave weight yarn: Bulky Yarn / Super Bulky Yarn
For kid/ short scarf : 1 skein (6 ozs, 106 yards)
For adult/ long scarf: 2-3 skeins (12-18 ozs, 212-318 yards)

You will learn how to do the following:

Pattern Reading
Slip Knot
Foundation Chain
Single Crochet
Double Crochet
Weave in Ends

By the end of the class, students will acquired the skills to make a scarf. They are encouraged to share they finished assignments on class discussion board and social media.

I can’t believe I will teach one day, it just never occurred to me. This happened because Skillshare contacted me out of the blue. I was approached by some brands, marketing agents and companies before, all about wanting me to promote their products on my social media. I only did it once and I am not going to do it again. However, I did agreed to write recipes for a parenting website that I visit regularly.

After I looked into the Skillshare online learning platform, I decided to give a try. When I was told that I need to present in front of a camera, the class will be available online and needed to be taught in English (which is not my 1st language), it just added that much more to this unforeseen and impossible opportunity. I finished the challenge and I am planning to teach more classes in the near future.

懷孕第三期與小公主新學期

一直懶著,這篇網誌到現在才寫,請原諒我這個懶洋洋的孕婦。

不經不覺,又過了三個多月,現在已經是最後一個懷孕階段,很多東西仍然未買,寶寶的房間只準備了一半,還有大量雜物需要搬到遊戲房。希望未來的兩個星期,可以買齊BB車,BB車座椅等的必需品,然後開始洗BB衫和作最後的佈置。

小寶寶現在31周半,醫生說有4磅重,生長線的59%,是中碼BB,成長良好。每天都被好動寶寶左踢右踢我的肚子和胃,有時候痛得我半夜醒來。小人兒重重地壓在我的膀胱上,害我每隔半小時都上廁所去,還要被肥仔爸爸取笑我,好可憐呢!

小公主們則非常興奮,每天上校巴前,都會先對著媽媽肚子說:「寶寶再見,姐姐很愛你啊!」然後才向媽媽揮手道別,快樂地上校巴去。二公主最愛摸媽媽肚子,尤其當寶寶在肚內郁動,她會用手輕輕按下去,像是隔著肚皮「High Five」一樣。大公主則非常期待可以做小媽媽,自告奮勇會做夜間小看護,若寶寶哭叫會立即前往查看,有需要就來找媽媽幫忙,讓我半夜不用跑來跑去,休息多一點。(多貼心的小人兒,這份心意讓媽媽聽著也覺得安慰。)

趁著現在有點空閒,很想織小帽子,外套和被子給小寶寶,也要織一些給小公主們,免得她們呷醋。但人總是懶洋洋的,提不起勁,腦袋空白一片的沒有構思,但時間無多,再不動工就恐怕不能完成,要好好鞭策一下自己才可以。

今天,小公主們已經上學兩星期,媽媽非常享受這個寧靜的新時間表。趁著還有精神和時間,將在這兩個月盡量到學校做義工,直至寶寶出世。今早先到學校圖書館上訓練班,很喜歡圖書館老師和其他義工家長,很容易相處又健談,完全不像首次見面呢!

然後,媽媽到大公主的班房讀故事書,小朋友們超留心,反應良好,是一班好乖的一年級學生。下星期開始到圖書館做義工,大公主超期待由媽媽幫她借書呢!

忙了一個早上,下午找肥仔爸爸吃午餐。終於試了口碑不俗的南非Fushion餐廳,味道很好,待應服務專業周到,非常滿意。難得在平日的下午,可以在環境不俗、食物和招呼周到的地方享受短暫的二人世界,好開心又充實的一天。

  
一直以為,她們都上全日制學校,我自己單獨在家會很寂寞,整天掛念著她們。然而,寶寶即將在兩個月後出世,深深明白將會面對無盡的無眠晚上,所以很珍惜這難得的自由空間。畢竟,自從奶奶身體欠佳後,我已經近3年沒有放過假,連一小時的自我空間也沒有享受過。

現在她們上學的大半天,都變成媽媽自由時間,收拾家居後不會立即打回原形,屋企變得企理一點。空閒下來,可以靜靜地看書,所以最近瘋狂地看了近十本書(實在太美好了)。一直沒有時間看的電視劇,終於可以一口氣地看完,非常難得。

然後,走到校巴車站接她們回家,聽著她們在學校遇到的各種新奇事物和趣事。她們享受沒有父母管束,但有新東西學習的好玩校園,媽媽又有自由空間。我們各自都有新生活習慣,大家都享受其中,感恩。

椰林飄香小蛋糕食譜

小公主們最愛精緻的甜點,希望每天都有飯後甜品吃。為健康著想,媽媽將蛋糕變成迷你版,即使孩子們嚷著要多吃一、兩件,也不用擔心健康問題。現在焗蛋糕實在很輕鬆,只要按喜好買不同味道的蛋糕預拌粉,花點心思就可以做出自己的獨特口味。還有電子蛋糕機的出現,沒有焗爐也不用怕。

天災處處-與危難擦身而過
