What I have been making lately…

And by lately I mean this past year, way before I thought about  making this blog. It’s been a long day , I have been attacked by bumble bees again, but I survived, and I can’t hate them,they are so chubby <3.  I also had a snickers ice cream bar ( that things is only sold in ONE store over here) and had cookies, I’m getting fat, I have to work out… >_>

Anyway, I went to Irma’s house yesterday, actually, I just didn’t told you… I’m sneaky like that. She is a very nice old lady who  has fed me when I needed it the most, sometimes when I don’t at all, she gives me a good talk and calls her self my fake mommy. Her house is way better lighted than mine, aside that mine has no decor what so ever and is messy and its n a quite ugly state, since we have been four people living here for the past month, all working all day.

So yeah,  I took pics of the projects  that are still in my possession, most of my stuff gets given away or, well lost in moving and such, I’ll show you what I’ve got… (excuse the terrible pictures I was being a bit pressured)

This blanket is for my friend Zu’s baby, Nerea, I just have failed to deliver it…  I made one of this sort for Mia, Liliana’s  toddler,  but I can’t seem to find it. It needs some blocking  but for now I really lack the space.

These are cushions based on a parttern by Alice at Crochet with Raymond, from the bunting tutorial, go have a look , link at the  left.

Same story here, just better pictures,  the  true rainbow one is  for Jesh’s mom and the other one is mine.

This shawl, scarf things, that yarn is gorgeous,  GORGEOUS  I tell you… My mother always asks me why  I can’t take one  serious picture… 8D! (God, I look tired.)

God I suck at taking pictures. Anyways, I made this just to try out Attic24’s granny stripe pattern, I can’t be bothered today to link into the post, my computer is being prissy,  but go to her link on the left. 

Irma modeled it!!!!!

This scarf, worked in trebles in a very soft blend… unknown fiber tho, was made to match…

THIS. It’s a bear hat, it has ear flaps and pompoms to tie it up,  I’ll be sharing the pattern soon. This was made for celeste, she also wants dinosaur spikes… which I have made, but not all fo them and I’m too lazy about it >_>.

And finally this, this is gonna be a cover for my bed, inspired by the awesome gypsy caravan bed cover by Alice ( big fan ).  50 something squares of 816,  and I’m being quite neurotic about it… Don’t have time for it since I’m in x-mas present euphoria.

I failed to have a decent picture of my sock monkey hat and he has no ears yet, I’m not gonna show him in shame. 

Also I’m knitting my frist hat, we will see about that…. humf!

Love and  Granny Squares,

Hello blogosphere, Starfish says helloooooooooooooooooooo!


This Andrea (pronounced And-reh-ah, for it is Hispanic) , a.k.a  Didi Starfish on the interwebs.  I am a 25 year-old tattooed and pierced Mexican girl, who lives in the province of HornCow, Morelos.  I work with phones talking to people in the U.S. as a part time job,  the rest of the time I’m either crafting, crocheting, reading, painting, watching movies or series.  I live in a small social interest house with two room-mates and my red slider turtle, named Wasabi who was inherited to me by a very dear friend. I browse and I read several blogs, rarely commenting, and that is gonna change now!

Tis me in my sexy pose

Tis me!!!

My life keeps suffering changes and since I went independent on January this year, I’ve been learning how to handle broken bathrooms, bills, house cleaning/keeping and making ends meet, living on a very tight budget.

But I’m happy as happy can be,  I’m with the most amazing human being I have ever met, I call him penguin,  he lives in Mexico City but I get to see him on weekends, ALL  weekend.  He is a very talented musician and I think he is the awesomest thing since the internet, and Zeus knows I love the internet.

He is the butter to my bread. ❤

And I have plans to move to the Big City once again since I’m originally from there. So here you will have my adventures doing so, finding a job, a place to live, moving everything on my own, but most specially, my crochet and crafting, and if you are very lucky and I’m not that shy, you will get my art stuff too, and hopefully my decorating my new place.

Let’s start with that, shall we? 

I been making a bunch of cushion covers,  all taken from the amazing Alice in Crochet with Raymond, she has amazing patterns and colour goodness.

This granny mandala soon to be cushion is  for my friend Jesh’s mother.  Who needs a bit of rainbow in her life.

More cushions to come.

As of now I’m in official X-mas gift making, pics will come as I finish them.

But here we have a  To-Do list, so I do not forget.

Pokemon scarf for the mini critic – 80% done  pattern from A bowl of yarn, a skein of noodles.

Queen Anne’s lace scarf for Fanny, my mother, Irene.

Some cool boyish scarf for Juli.

Some other cool scarf for Dany.

Scarf that matches bear hat I made for the bf.

A little somthing for a little papaqui creature if i can get it to her.

Hat for Israel.

That being my first post and me being quite satisfied by it, I shall now say good night, since starfish sleeping hours approach.

Love and Glitter,

Didi Starfish.
