All about crocheting, sewing, and knitting.

Much Needed Updates…Finally!


Hey everyone…sooooooooooo I’ve been on a super long self imposed hiatus as you all probably guessed.

I have tons of excuses, but I’ll keep it simple for ya’ll:

1) I was being very lazy to craft anything (hey the summer heat was gettin’ to me!)
2) School started and then I became very busy (for real)
3) My sister is getting married inshaAllah! Wohoo! :)

So anyways, besides all that I finally started working with yarn again! It felt amazing I tell you & I haven’t stopped crocheted/knitting since. I’ve also been experimenting with cooking snacks/appetizers. I really wanted to make Brazilian Cheese Bread aka Pão de queijo…but I didn’t have tapioca flour. I did have all purpose flour so instead, I made Cheese gougère (now don’t ask me to pronounce that).

Here is a pic of the cheesy goodness:

Cheese Gougere
Okay so you can’t see the cheese..sorry about that! I don’t have a pic of the inside ‘cuz they were gone very quickly. Here’s a link to the recipe.

Moving on to the knitting/crocheting! I’ve realized that even though my blog is titled “veiledpurl” I never really posted anything about knitting. Well, that’s about to change now. :)

I’ve recently started to knit scarves & hats to give to the homeless for the cold winter days ahead. This is a project by Muslims Giving Back which is a 100% non profit charity organization.

Here is the first crochet hat I made to give away:
Crochet Hat
It’s a basic hdc hat with ear flaps that I designed myself.

I then went on to make this knitted scarf. It is 2×2 ribbing.
Sorry it’s not such a good pic! I’ll upload better pics later.

I have lots more to update so stay tuned!
Have a great day everyone =]

P.P.S I’ve also started loom knitting! More on this later inshaAllah.
