Around my birthday, I received a wonderful package from a Crochetville fairy godmother that included a scrubbie. DH really liked the pot scrubber and urged me to discover a pattern to make more. I found a free pattern on Ravelry here.
The pattern works up quickly. The author includes a link to a video that shows how to make the scrubbie from crocheting to sewing it together. Never having made one of these before, I found the video important to understand how the scrubbie is put together. I took pictures so I'd remember the how to put it together the next time.
Just one note, in order to get the spiral look for my scrubbie, I did have to mold it a bit when I was done, but it has held its shape. At first, I thought I'd made a mistake, but I realized in looking at the one I'd received that it also had to be moved into the spiral. It didn't naturally fall that way.
I plan to make more of these and may throw some into Christmas packages this holiday season. I was impressed with how well they cleaned.
It has been a busy summer. I have several shawls to post. I fell behind with Blogging as I prepared to travel to a family wedding. The wedding was wonderful, but distracted me from many of my normal summer activities. I just need to get the crochet pictures uploaded so I can post them.
I finally started working on learning Tunisian crochet. I've been working through a dishcloth with assistance from a DVD and books. I have been researching my options to take a local class. I have videos, but I have decided I need a teacher I can interact with to make more progress. I also located my local chapter of the CGOA, and am hoping to get involved starting with their meeting next month.
