Crochet Spa, Dish Cloths

For those times when I’m just sitting around doing nothing…I have to do SOMETHING…so I’m making cloths while watching t.v., sitting on the deck, etc…These are great. 100% Cotton, Washable, Srubby, Soft…Great for kitchen and bath!!

Embroidered Wine Bottle Bag

This is a bottle bag I made to wrap a bottle of wine in to give as a gift. It is 100% cotton ecru with embroidered grapevine & leaf design and has a drawstring ribbon to open and close. It fits a standard 750 ml bottle of wine and is completely washable. It is also reusable so is very environmentally friendly which is good for the planet. ;-)

Fisherman Aran Afghan

This is the first Aran Afghan that I made before beginning the process of designing. It has one large center panel and 2 smaller ones on each side. I’ve used a cable needle before but on a very limited basis. It was very slow going so I started wondering if it could be done without a needle. I did some research and found out that lots of people do cables without needles so I checked out some video’s and found them to be very scary, so I kept plugging along with the needle. By the time I got to the fifth panel I decided to take the plunge, took a big deep breath and VOILA….no problem. Not nearly as scary as it looks. Once I got going I actually found it easier and faster to do the cables without a needle. This was a gift for my step son and his new bride.

This pattern was designed by Rita Weiss and can be found in The Ultimate Book of Knit Afghans
