Thought I'd share some of my latest hooky projects with you today. I'm in the middle of working on an afghan for myself right now & Alli just recently told me that she 'needed' a new one herself......which is true. The one I made her several years ago is a bit small for her now. She wants a 'Babette' pattern this time around. We're going to look at Michael's this Friday to start choosing some colors. I really need to push ahead & finish the one I'm doing right now so I can get busy on her new one. I LOVE starting a new project. When I'm not crocheting on my afghan, I'm working on dishcloths....trying to build my stash up for gift-giving. I love doing dishcloths......they're so quick & almost instant gratification, if you know what I mean. Here's some pictures that I took this afternoon.
|Your basic square....knit on the diagonal dishcloth. These are so super easy to make. I finished this one up this afternoon.|
|These four were made totally from scraps.....using a yarn-knotting technique that I believe I learned from Kristi also. So cool because the knot is almost invisible.|
MOST of my stash so far......I believe that I have a couple other round crocheted ones that didn't make it into the photograph....but you get the idea.
