Rajut Free Knitting Pattern: Easy Nose Warmer


I made these cute things for someone who want to give these to his friend who will going to cold climate country.

But I found that this little thing is very fun to make and addictive. Also can be used even if you live in warm climate country like mine. For example, when you ride a motorcycle. It can block the cold night wind that make your nose itchy and runny. Haha.

So, here is the free knitting pattern I used to knit these cute nose warmers.

*I used flannel fabric to make the ears and trunk 


Free Knitting Pattern= Mustachio Nosewarmer by Stefanie Goodwin-Ritter
Yarn I used= SA Poyeng (DK weight)
Knitting needle used= 2.75mm (US 2) Double Pointed Needles.


Happy Knitting!!

Hi again! :D

Even I practically living in a yarn shop, it is still rare to find a man who like to knit or crochet and openly come and hang out in a yarn shop. I can count them with my fingers in my hands.

So there is a man named Wili. Introduced to me as a friend of my other knitter friend, that not have a problem to hang out and crocheting or knitting in a yarn shop full of girls.
And already making amigurumi of my favorite character for me using free crochet pattern that I found in Ravelry, twice!

How To: Making Mini Photo Studio using Cardboard Box


I'm the type that prefer to take photograph in natural light condition. But lately, it's so hard to find the sun because of the monsoon (I live in south east Asia). (;﹏;)

So, I thought this was the right time, to try that DIY tutorials I ever watched about making your own mini photo studio using cardboard box. Cheap and easy. (^v^)

Materials needed:
  1. Cardboard box in size you wanted.
  2. Thin white paper. (you can used plain paper, printer paper, tissue paper, etc)
  3. Inkjet paper (some say this can absorb light very well)
  4. double-sided tape
  5. Ruler
  6. Cutter
  7. Pencil
  8. Two regular desk lamp with Daylight type LED.

How to:
  • With ruler, pencil, and cutter, make square hole in three sides of the box. I leave 1.5 inches (4 cm) corner.
  • Cut little square on the center side in one of the close lid of the box (see illustration). This will help you peeking into the box when taking pictures.
  • Cut the thin white paper in size of the three sides that now have big square holes.
  • Tape them into the box from the inside.
  • Permanently close the lid side of the box that don't have peeking hole.
  • Now, the side of box that don't have hole in it will be the base of your photo studio, and the lid side that now closed shut will be back-wall side of your photo studio.
  • Make the inkjet paper to be the size of your box, and stick the upper side into the back-wall of your mini photo studio.
  • And it is now done! Put your desk lamp in either side of the box when you use it, and put your camera in the peeking hole (you can open or close the lid).


The camera you used don't have to be DSLR. You also can using your smartphone or pocket camera with help of mini tripod to keep it steady.

With this, I now can take picture anytime I want as long as I have electricity on. (〜^∇^)〜

Warning: keep it away from your children or your pet. :p

This is one of many Youtube tutorial I used as reference:

Free Crochet Pattern: Citrus Coaster

I desperately need some coaster. But I know that making this in crochet will be easier and less time consuming than making this in knitting.

So I leave my comfort zone and choose this cute free crochet pattern to make.

yarn = SPS Poyeng - DK weight
(I used my leftovers from previous projects)
this coasters are unblocked yet
I am not a crocheter. I've learned crochet stitches for knowledge purpose only, so I applauded myself for succeeding making this coaster quite tidy. But I still cannot make them in same size. Some are bigger than the others. T.T
