A few weeks ago I met up with Shannon and we visited with Cristi (yeah, bad bloggers, no pictures...oh well ;) Anyhow, she helped us with our crochet skills. She's a very patient teacher! I basically needed a refresher on some stitches, other than some edging on knit items, I've not done any crochet since high school.
Presenting my first crochet FO!
Wonder Dreams and Sweet Green. I coordinated these to go with the towel set I got him too.
Berry Blue and Wonder White. Not too bad a job on the crab stitch border either. I'm happy with them. :)
A Stack 'o Washcloths ready to go!
Oh So Soft Baby Washcloths (Ravelry link) or from Crochetville
Size I (5.5) hook
Bernat Cottontots in
Wonder White, Blue Berry, Sweet Green, and Wonder Dreams.
You'll see many more here in the future as I have 4 ladies currently pregnant and a stash of this yarn all ready to go. It's so soft and not a bad price since I'll at least get 2-3 cloths per skein. I've seen these knit in almost any cotton you can think of, you know they don't have to be for babies! My gauge is getting better each time, but hey, they are washcloths...don't really need to be perfect you know.
My new acquisiton....
ChiaoGoo Bamboo Crochet hooks are the bomb!! I've only owned a few metal ones, but these are so light and don't tire you out! I got 3 at Charlotte Yarn on our trip but the rest came from here.
Stay tuned, you'll be seeing a few crochet projects here and there.
