My creative space

It's a Thursday thing, but somehow I always make it a Friday one.  Oops.

My crafting this week has been all about the crochet, baby!  Mainly because it's such a portable craft and also because I've had the dreaded cold this week so I haven't really been up to doing much else.

I finished making a very basic, double crochet facecloth though.  The next one I make will be a little fancier, I hope.  I'm also experimenting with making a loop to hang it from too.  The loop I made on this one isn't too sturdy, sadly.  However it is lovely to wash your face with.  Big thumbs up there.  I make it from organic cotton which is lovely and soft and very nice to work with.

The weekend shall bring some more work on my Shearwater Kaftan (hopefully).

My creative space is hosted by Kootoyoo and I'm really enjoying reading what everyone else is up to here.  I promise I'll actually join in on Thursday next week!

  4. Yes, here here with the dreaded cold. Have been meaning to make some crochet facewashers an also some dishclothes are on my list. I really should make an actual list so that I dint keel forgetting. I have seen some fabulous patterns on ravelry, where did you get that pattern, or did you make it up?

  5. I just made the pattern up (using my extremely limited knowledge of crochet!) but I'm keen to try some fancier borders next time. There's so many tutorials on You Tube for crochet - it's excellent!
