I have noticed scrubbies in the knitting community lately. They are made with cotton and may be better to wash with than dishrags, according to some opinions. To make a bath scrubbie, I used a smaller cotton thread and cast on a few more stitches. What do you think?

I have been making charms and other bobbles to hang from tea cozy loops and from Sunday Undies. They are all different and have evolved over the years. I still use the cell phone charm lanyard on occasion and the picnic tablecloth clasp; however, I prefer the silver or silver plated lobster claws. The charms vary in cost and materials. I have used antique buttons, handmade sculpted roses and carrots, and I have purchased various bobbles for my charms. Rather than placing all of the charms in a container, I decided to place them on a long crocheted cord made from novelty yarn. Now I can hang the cord and look at my pretties anytime, along with having the ability to visually see if the charm will match or coordinate with my newly made item. As an ultra-feminine woman, I have to add a little bling to everything.
Blessings to You and Yours! Dawn

This weekend I had a lot of time to knit. I was a passenger on a road trip, so I knitted away. I recently purchased some ribbon yarn and I was able to try it out on the scarf. I like the pattern. it makes both ends pointed. I crocheted around the scarf, adding a shell pattern on each end. The scarf is very thick and much softer than I expected. I believe the fiber contents are 100% polyester. I also completed another rose Sunday Undie. Refer to my website for more explanation of the use of the Sunday Undie.
Thank you for viewing my blog. May God Anoint You With Blessings!
