Crochet!

The majority of the projects I’ve been posting lately have been papercraft related. I love all things crafty – so I’ve pulled a couple crochet projects I worked on recently to showcase here.

These crochet dishcloths and pot scrubbies are not only cute – but green too! Made with 100% cotton, these can be washed over and over again. Much more environmentally friendly than paper towels or sponges!

I used Lily Sugar and Cream yarn for all these. It’s super soft, and is easy to care for. The dishcloth patterns came from the Leisure Arts ‘Kitchen Basics in Cotton’ book, whereas the scrubbies are a modified version of a pattern I pulled from the ‘Beyond the Square – Crochet Motifs’ book. Each of these worked up really quickly – which is good for someone like me that gets bored really quickly!

    Great stuff and you did a good job on your first dishcloths. You can add some recycled produce netting to your scrubbies for extra scrubbing power. Here is a free pattern if you’d like to try it http://www.myrecycledbags.com/2008/06/12/my-greenie-pot-scrubber/

    I love cute dishcloths – the cuter the better & the more I want to use them. Great job!
