Pattern: Tunisian Crochet Washcloth by Poppy & Bliss (Michelle Robinson) from My Poppet
Hooks: 6mm Tunisian Crochet hook and J crochet hook
Notes: My ends looked pretty sloppy and my corners wonky. For me it worked best to just cut each color and join the new one.
Yarns: Bernat organic cotton, Valley Yarns Goshen, Louise Harding Ondine,
Plymouth Yarn Jeannee Worsted, some vintage stuff, Peaches and cream.
Another quick and easy project was the jar opener. I have two and have used them for many things besides opening jars. They help my cutting board not slide and I use one when I have to clamp my apply corer/slicer to the counter top. I read somewhere they are handy under the sewing machine pedal as well. These are going to be thrown at the walking group.
Supplies: shelf liner by Contact.
Hooks: I used a size D hook for the first row and changed to a size G. I found a SC, ch1 around decreased puckering.Then there is the potholder. Well so far two potholders.Pattern: Delores's Scrap Hotpad
Mods: For a potholder, I tried a 6 inch square and one layer of padding and 7.5 inch square with one later heat resistant padding with one layer cotton batting. I like the two layers and larger size. I did not add a loop since I store my potholders in a hanging bag.
More are sure to follow.
And last but not least, the hanging bags. I love to use up scrap yarns and handspun. I have three in the kitchen and one in the bathroom (for TP rolls)
Notes: I change the crochet hook depending on the yarns I use. I have used up to 4 yarns held together. Adding some eyelash yarn is a nice touch!
I went to a birthday party last night for a friend who just turned 50. That seems very young to me. I better start channeling my inner 20-something before reaching permanent old fut stage. Are there pills? The vitamins aren't doing it.
