Crocheting? But this blog is called knitterwockey!

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!


  1. It's crazy to me that crocheting is so much faster, as it uses so much more yarn.

    and thank you for finally posting. Not five minutes ago I was griping at you in my head for not having posted for four days. Damnit, I need something to read!

  2. such a great peachy color! do these wash cloths hold up as nicey as terrycloth? do they take longer to dry?

  3. Haha, sorry it took so long! I like updating when I have pictures to post, but I am still working on sock #2. With any luck I'll finish it in time for my sock blockers to get here and I can post pretty blocked pictures of them this week!

  4. I'm super impressed! I gave up on crocheting long ago--I could never figure out how to connect a second row to my first chain. I love the color you chose! What kind of yarn is that?

  5. The yarn is just plain ol' peaches 'n cream cotton yarn. Probably in the color peach. :) You can get that stuff cheap at pretty much any big box craft store and it's excellent for wash cloths and things like that.
