8 x 8
I have had so much fun crocheting squares to send to South Africa to the Knit-A-Square Project that makes our donated squares into blankets to keep children warm.
I made them from a pattern in my favorite crochet book, 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton.
The Bobble Stripe block can be seen on the cover and is square #29 on page 48. This book is wonderfully laid out with great directions, photos and clear diagrams in the back for all of the stitches.
I have enjoyed this book so much that I just ordered two more that remind me of it. I will now have patterns to make similar pieces in creative shapes besides squares and beautiful flowers too. I will let you know how they are as soon as they arrive and I give them a whirl.I am really excited to try the patterns from both of these books. What a great way to use up my yarn stash.
Knit Cotton Towels
I have also been knitting in the evenings and recently made these 3 hand towels for my bathroom. I used variegated dyed cotton yarn so that they would be colorful, absorbent and easy to wash. They were great fun to make while watching TV. :)
What have you been creating lately? Please leave a comment and let me know. I would love to hear all about it!
