I finished two small presents this weekend in between sock knitting binges. My Mom asked for crocheted wash cloths like the ones that I gave to my sister last year for Christmas (which she never used!) so I finally broke down this weekend and pulled out my hook and watched a few videos (I completely forgot everything I knew about crocheting) and made a dishcloth and bath puff.
I actually did the wash cloth before looking up stitches so I did pretty much everything wrong but it still looks nice so I'm gonna just pretend that I did it the right way.
I forgot how fast crocheting is. I did this during the 2nd and 3rd quarters of the Colts/Pats game last night. I can't remember the last time I sat down and finished a project in one session. I felt very productive.
I also got her some handmade soap from the local farmer's market to go with these. I think she'll like them quite a bit and finally, someone will use the gifts that I give them.
Happy Birthday Mom!
