I bought some dishcloths, a while back, that I wanted to put crocheted edgings on. Got one out the other day, and this is the result. These are super simple to do. I usually put whatever edging on them that I want. I always do a base row of sc. On this one the second row is simply 2 sc, 2 ch in each st around. Quick and easy! :D The color is off in the first picture. The second one is more TTL.

This basket of yarn will be turned into the Wool-Eater blanket that I am making. In 2012 I’d really like to use up some of my stash, and this will be a start. :) If all goes according to plan, I will be posting about my wool-eater afghan each Wednesday. Anybody else joining the wool-eater cal?

My latest crochet creations…made for a special baby girl due in a couple of months. This sweater pattern is my favorite. It is one from a Crochet World magazine from 1981. The pattern is actually for a hooded sweater, but I have found that I enjoy making a sweater and hat separately. It is a fun pattern to work with. Just change the colors and edgings and it works up nicely for either a boy or a girl.

And we are invited to join!! Sarah London is having a Wool Eater CAL. I decided to join…should be fun. I have already made one blanket, and for Christmas gifts this year I made some potholders. You can see two of the potholders here in this post. Between now and next Wednesday I need to decide which colors I want to use. I am deciding between two schemes. One being a blue and green color scheme. And the other being a “use up a bunch of solid leftover yarns” scheme. Decisions, decisions. Anyhoo, won’t you join Sarah, me, and all the others in the Wool Eater CAL?! Should be lots of fun! And thanks, Sarah, for inviting all of us to join you.

I actually made this in December, but didn’t want to post it until after Christmas. Reason being it was a Christmas gift for my brother-in-law. Now that he has it, I am able to post about it. I don’t think he checks my crochet blog, but didn’t want to post about it before Christmas, just in case. ;) It’s nothing fancy…just a soup can turned pencil/pen holder via crochet. :)
