Pot Scrubbers

Now and then I get comments from people asking for directions how to make pot scrubbers from nylon or tulle. In the few weeks I have  received one such link and found two more. All sets of instructions show how to start with a piece of netting or tulle.

Here they are for your use :

Good Morning

The past couple of days have been super busy. One of the reasons for that is because I took lots of time to update and add lot of links to this site. There was also time to reply to several comments.

I also added a page by splitting the Towels page into  Towels-Crochet and  Towels-Knit. My motivation was to make this site easier to use. If it doesn’t help, please let me know.

There are probably more dead links, for which I apologize. I will be looking for these as much as possible. If you see some that have been missed, please let me know so they can be corrected or removed.

My files are bursting with new links  to add here. There are not enough hours in my days to do as much as I want on this site. For some reason, my employer expects me to work when schedule; my family needs my attention, I need a bit of sleep; and a bit of time to knit or crochet is also needed.  I learned a long time ago it is better for me  to be busy than bored. 🙂

Have a great week!!

June Already

It is the first part of June already. Time flies quickly. I have been trying to add links and check pages a few times weekly.

The number and quality of cloths and other items which this blog covers is amazing.  I respect the creativity and energy  that goes into each one.

Have a great week!

Site Update

I will be updating this blog daily for the next six days starting today. By the end of that time, the links on each page will have been reviewed ; the dead ones will be  researched and removed if found not to be valid elsewhere on the internet.I will also be going through my files and adding  links to more  patterns.

Another goal is to update and answer all comments that are waiting attention. This may or may not be done publicly depending on what I decide. Please accept my apologies for having gotten so far behind. Life has been busy and this blog has unfortunately gotten lost in the shuffle.

If you are a designer and wish to have a link to your pattern added to this site, please send me a message by of the comments. My computer will be checked for messages several times daily for the next several days and at least once daily after that time.

Nylon Net Scrubbies

Almost since the start of this blog there have been requests for directions about how to make scrubbies from nylon netting. This evening while updating and adding links here, I found an article on this topic. It is called Crocheting Dish Scrubbies 101

I hope this helps answer some of the questions you have on this subject.

Dish Cloth Maker’s Cry

I try very hard to keep this blog strictly for links

It’s an unwritten rule I have you see.

This evening that rule is being broken and for a very good reason.

For it is  a little over a  week before Christmas and I am in a state of frenzy…That I am indeed.

It has dawned on me in a sudden burst that there are lots of deadlines to meet.

Dishcloths to make, an afghan to be seamed, a comfortghan to be complete.

There are links to be added here for others to use. My files are still overflowing with things to share.

So much to do and so little time  to be had.

Blast this silly bug it had to land on me now!!

Two days lost  to it  never  again to be found.

Take a deep breath and calm yourself down.

Things will get one way or another.

That’s easy to think, I tell myself…

One…Two…Three deep breaths I take.

Almost calm, now I am.

Until suddenly….It comes to me:

Oh no! Oh no! Is my cry…Where can it be?  Where can it be? That yarn that is set aside for a special set of dishcloths.

It is to go to my Sister in Law you see.

It’s the yarn that is pink,blue, and white, with just a tint of green,

It was here when I rearranged part of my stash.

Where did it go? Oh where did it go?

Three large bins of Rubbermaid  have been searched.

I looked through skeins of red, white and green.

There was every shade of purple, yellow and blue.

But there was not a ball of Seashore by Bernat to be seen.

I am NOT in a panic…Why no, not me!

Never, Never  No, not me!

Be still my heart, or you’ll go a flutter.

At last..It dawns on me.

Look in the cabinet that holds cones and clear bins.

I might find it there…

Yes!! Yes!! It is there. four precious skeins of the yarn I see.

Now some new dishcloths they will be…

What pattern to use? What will I choose?

Who do I ask? I say to myself…Who will know?

Go online I say to myself

There are tons to be found.

Will they be square, rectangular or round?

The answers are yet to be found…

What matters for now is that the yarn is in my hand.

———————————————————-

Thank you gentle readers, for bearing with me as I expounded and vented  some of the frustrations felt today as I searched for some very important yarn.

May you each have much success in finding lost hooks, needles, looms, threads  and yarns. May your tools and hands be Blessed with Wisdom, Speed and Love as you make treasures for those you love and who need your love.

Please accept my thanks for using my site as a stopping place on your search for just the right gift! If you find one item of you use, then my time has not been in vain.

Please forgive my slowness to respond to each of you this year. Human frailty is my only excuse.
You have my promise of my best effort for more organization next year.

In the meantime, in case there is not time to post before:

May God Bless the Holiday Season for each of you. May you find Peace, Joy and Love now and in the days to come.

Another New Page Added

I have added another new page today. It is titled: Groups With Free Patterns.  There are only a few groups listed at this time because of time restraints. More will be added as time allows. If you know of a group you would like to see added here, please let me know.
