I think I might be having a minor OCD episode. I can't seem to stop crocheting! I've had this hobby since I was a young child making lopsided blankets for my dollies, scarves for my teddy, and pillows for myself. I sure wish wearing doilies as sweaters was fashionable, because I'd be SET. I made about 100 of them in college. (Mom, Dad, close your eyes and skip to the next paragraph please) When I was working on an afghan for my grandma, I used to actually skip classes to work on it!

How to Make a Half Double Crochet Stitch
It's no secret that homemade dishcloths make great gifts. Both crochet and knit varieties last forever, holding up through repeated beatings in the washer and dryer, not to mention what they go through in the kitchen or bath. Since they are inexpensive to make and work up quickly, they are also a great item to crochet or knit in bulk to sell at church bazaars and craft fairs. With the number of free patterns available on the internet, it's easy to make a nice gift with little time or money spent. I'm no designer and like to crochet simple things, but I played around with a favorite crochet stitch and threw this little number together very quickly. Others that I have shared the pattern with have proclaimed it to be a hit because of its simplicity and functionality, while still being an attractive piece.

Grandmother's Favorite pattern by Traditional Design
our recent crappy weather has encouraged some quiet, crafty evenings at home. In going through our supplies, we’ve discovered tons of leftover yarn from previous projects. instead of trying to mix and match it all into one larger thing, we’ve discovered the joys of making little things—projects we can whip up in 30 minutes or so while catching up on flight of the conchords or whatnot… these dish scrubbers are a good example: quick and easy to make, a great use of cotton yarn scraps, and they make great gifts. plus they’re a great alternative to stinky, disposable sponges. use these, toss them in the laundry, and use them again and again and again. have fun!derek & lauren diy wednesdays: crocheted cotton dish scrubbers diy wednesdays: crocheted cotton dish scrubbers
