I love to crochet and knit . It is what I do when the days are cold and I don't want to go outside. But then I love to knit and crochet all the time................ who am I kidding. I love to crochet granny squares , and I have made a couple of afghans and been involved in a couple swaps. I love to crochet potholders, dishcloths, scrubbies, just about anything that is small enough to take with me where ever I go and I have extra time. This is just a very small sample of some of the blocks I have done. I did alot of them with a sunflower in the middle since I am a sunflower lover.
I also just have tried to make a swiffie cover since I hate to pay for those paper toss away pads. There are so many patterns on the web and I chose this one. It was very easy but I did not think that my swiffie was bigger then the pattern, shame on me for not measuring. I had to alter it a bit but I made it fit. It works very well and I am in the process to make a couple more , and this time I will adjust the pattern so it fits the first time. Did I also mention that I love to knit??
Oh my gosh I LOVE to knit!! I always have a potholder, or a dish cloth or something small on the needles so I can take it with me to work on where ever I am . I have made mittens for the grand kids with matching hats for Christmas. I have made so many dish and wash rags and scrubbies that I can not count them all. I love to do potholders that are thick enough that you really won't get burned with those hot dishes. I have made sweaters and such but I just love the almost instant gratification with those quick little projects. I have this really cool pattern I am doing right now for a dish cloth and I liked it so much that I am making one of the grand kids a scarf for next Christmas already. It is her favorite color , I know she will love it!
It is a really nice pattern with texture and it is reversible. How cool is that ? this pattern is so easy and it works up so quick. I am going to have to start adding links to all my favorite knit and crochet sites on this blog for you but the one I use so much is the lion brand yarn site. I love Lion Brand yarn and I use it a lot. I really love the wool yarns they have. Well I need to get back to those needles, just wanted to share a bit of what I have been doing these last couple months. Be blessed , and come back soon.
