Are you stalking your mail carrier for packages of holiday goodness? Abby loves her mail ladies very much. We always remember them with a little something to say "thank you." Nearly squealed when I found these adorable mail boxes.
I finished the dish cloth with the Knit Picks Simply Cotton in limeade. Hurry on over. They're having a fantastic sale! I even started and finished a blue variegated dish cloth using Sugar and Cream cotton. The pattern was a freebie I picked up at JoAnns. It makes a sizeable dish cloth and I love the simple single crochet.
Yarn isn't easy for me to buy because much of it is acrylic. I am allergic to acrylic. So when I find something washable and not acrylic I buy some. I do not know crochet math but I wondered if I could figure out how to make a scarf using the dish cloth pattern, just narrow and long. Well...I finally did but should have worked with an easier yarn at first. This twisted stuff is nearly impossible to tear out. Lots of cutting. The crochet police were knocking at my door! Long story short...I put the remaining yarn in a bag to donate. I'll start a new scarf with easy yarn.
For those of you who have asked about my crochet hook and book -- the book was purchased at JoAnns. I like it because it has photos and written instructions for left handed people too. The hook is an Addi and I purchased it at Yarn Market. They are a HUGE place, withing walking distance from my house, and they ship worldwide. I've only been once. I'm waiting for a yarn friend to visit so we can go together.
Anita at Connecting Threads also told me about Dishie. Cute name and great colors. This is pomegranate. I'm starting a new dish cloth tonight.
When you have lots of things to do and don't want to do them, go make a yarn tree!
