The matching potholders


I can never seem to get two exactly alike.  The color pooling is always slightly different ...

ah well .... they go well with my green dishcloth.

(They also protect my feet from Harriet the Happy Hippo.)

A green washcloth


So, I made this dishcloth - think I'll make matching hot pads and keep it for myself .. cute uh?

A small pink thread crochet bag

I recently finished this little bag.  It's made from some variegated crochet thread.  Not very big, but could be useful.

A what? a bottle holder ? wow, it's RED!

Isn't it better to carry a pretty bottle of water instead of just the plain old water bottle?  

How about this one?

A Japanese Knot Bag

So I didn't sleep so well last night. I kept waking up every couple hours, then every hour.  So around 4:30 I decided I just needed to get up.  I also decided that I should do something constructive, so I chose to make a Japanese Knot Bag!  It will also serve as a project for the HPKCHC as one of the prompts (which today is the last day) needs a non-Ravelry craft. (That means not crochet, and not knitting - but sewing fits the bill nicely!

I found my pattern here.

I lengthened and widened the body of the bag, so my dimensions are a little bit different, but the concept and sewing steps are still the same.

Wah Lah!  (btw - one bag - it's reversible.)

A little premie hat and a shawl in progress

Here's a little premie hat I made .... 


 I also started a CAL (Crochet A Long) and am using up some Caron Simply Soft yarn stash I have.  I got this far, and then I wasn't sure what color to add next as I was running low on charcoal gray ...


So I polled others that were doing the same CAL and one person suggested the pink.. and I thought, what the hay .. green and pink go well together ...


I'm liking how it's turning out ..should be done in a few days.
