Craft Hope Project 8 – Day 25

Craft Hope Day 25 I’m back from our mini vacation.  We finally had the chance to go to Savannah, GA.  It’s full of Southern charm and I would definitely recommend it for a honeymoon getaway.  On the way back we stopped one night in St. Agustine, FL to watch the 4th of July fireworks over the Lion’s bridge.

I did find time to work on my project while I was gone.  This double crochet washcloth pattern is from Lion Brand Yarn.  Slowly but surely I am reaching my goal.

Craft Hope Project 8 – Day 24

The temperature is rising as the days go by…and so is the grass.  This year I have been following the agricultural extention’s advice to keep the grass about 4 inches high.  It’s growing thick and lush and feels so cool on my feet when I walk barefoot on it.

Craft Hope Day 24Today’s washcloth is a cable stitch from Lion Brand Yarn. I’m a visual learner so the stitch diagram was very helpful for me. 24 washcloths done, 6 more to go.

Craft Hope Project 8 – Day 23

Craft Hope Day 23Three weeks into this project.  I can feel my crochet skills getting better an I’m feeling a little braver about doing more complicated patterns at a later date.  The great thing about crochet is that it’s very portable.  My hook and yarn have joined me during my summer trips.  It’s great to kill time while waiting at the airport or to relax after a long day of sightseeing.

This dishcloth pattern comes from Lily’s Sugar and Cream yarn site.  This is also the yarn I have been using for this project.  I’m loving the juicy summer colors that are in stock at the craft stores right now.
