No matter what I'm doing or what's going on in my life, the one thing that is always the same is that I am knitting or crocheting something.
I just can't stand to sit down and not do anything, so my yarn is always close by so that I can knit a few rows. One of the most satisfying projects for me is dishcloths.
They make up so quickly and they are cheerful to look at, especially in my pink granite washtub. The dishcloths are knit, but I decided to add a crochet edge on them just to liven them up with a contrasting color.
I have made different patterns that are fancier, but the truth is, this pattern is the best. It's called Grandma's Favorite and I can see why. For cleaning they simply work the best. The truth is I've made about twice this many, but Lindsey comes by and says, "Ooh, I like this one" and off it goes.
I found this pattern for a hexigon patterned afghan on Shabby Roses Cottage. She showed these beautifully colored hexigons and of course, Lindsey wanted me to make her one. I changed the colors just a little. Lindsey's is red, pink and light turquoise.
Only a few more to sew on. I'm going to crochet another row of red around it and add tassels to each corner and then it will be done.
This is one of my crocheted hot pads. They are double thick and look pretty hanging in the kitchen. I love working with cotton yarn and can't resist it when I go to craft stores.
I haven't shown a picture of my babies lately. They are so cute. It is hard to catch them being still long enough to get a picture. They follow me everywhere I go so when I get up to get the camera, there goes the cute pose. They always think maybe Mama is going to get them some food.
That is Spencer on the left and Muffin on the right. Muffin's nickname is Doodles.
Wishing you much happiness! Twyla
