You won’t believe what I have been working on……..I don’t even believe it!! Lately it seems like I have been seeing tons of posts where people are……crocheting. Many, many, many year ago I crocheted all the time. My mom taught it to me before I ever learned to sew. All of my boxes of yarn and every single size of needle have been gone a long, long time……but I just couldn’t resist any longer.

I only bought ONE hook and…ONE skein of yarn.  Suzanne at Just Another Hang Up
had a tutorial for making a crocheted cotton dishcloth and before long……..

Crochet yarn for dish cloths

I was crocheting up a storm. It must be like riding a bike…….once I started I felt like I had never stopped doing it. I had also read people were making them to use a a washcloth so that is my plan.
I have lots of handmade soap to use with it. Now……I’m back to quilting!

    Love the crochet Connie…and your new tote! Crochet and knitting is my new thing lately! How are you doing? Come visit me at


  2. I love your little cloths! I have been knitting them. I think I will try and do it your way. I went to peak at the tutes and I think I could learn to do that. Thanks for the idea.
    Looking forward to your day on the Island Batik. Thanks.

  3. another thing we have in common…. crocheting was my first "hobby/craft" I learned when I was maybe 12…. later I made LOTS of these YARNABLES stuffed animals, they are SEW cute and all SC stitches, google them 🙂

  4. Yikes you know I meant Reizer, right? Late night, fat fingers. LOL!

  5. If you continue to crochet, DO NOT buy another hook. Over the years I have received many, many sized hooks from my aunt and those orphans that I just can't pass up at yard sales and Goodwill. There are many duplicates and you are welcome to whatever you need.

    Reiner can't wait to show you "his" quilt. I would like to get it quilted this week but it might be next week. It's a 9 patch disappearing quilt with Halloween fabrics and it is mighty bright. Got some great pictures of him laying it out on the deck.


  6. How fun Connie. I have wanted to learn to crochet for the past few years. I even went to buy a whole set of hooks in a nice case so they'd all be together instead of all over my sewing room. But, I gave up too quickly. I KNOW I can do it because my Mom taught me an easy to make necklace with small beads every so often. Plus, I would get these awesome rectangular scrubby pads from hubby's Grandmother each year at Thanksgiving and she did tell me they were made using some plastic type material like a tulle or something; I don't recall exactly, but never learned how she made them. Sadly, she's gone now so I've been looking for a pattern for a few years now with not much luck at all. All I can find are the crochets cloths like you are making. I figured using that and figuring out how to make them smaller and buying the right material, that it may work. I just haven't tried yet. I was super excited about two weeks ago though when I happened to run across a pattern to make almost the same identical necklace my Mom and I used to make. I saved that one immediately as I'd been searching for that for years now and never could find it. She and I used to sell those back then because everyone thought they were so great to wear. I never could make them as I could not recall how we got the bead into the single crochet, nor how to end the loop when I was done. 🙁

    You obviously have a much better knowledge that I ever got close to having with crochet. Your dish cloths look great.

    Great minds think alike (sort of) because I have been knitting, rather than crocheting up a storm making dishcloths too! I had several skeins of cotton yarn and wanted to use them up. I have made 6 so far, working on the 7th and have enough yarn to make at least another 6 if I mix up the yarns into a few of the dishcloths. I enjoy knitting while I watch a movie or show.

  8. Like you, I crocheted before I began sewing/quilting even hand embroidery. I developed corpal tunnel in my wrist which made it very painful, so I gave away all of my supplies to my step daughter who is making all sorts of fun items. Glad that you are enjoying it once again! Thank you for sharing your project and the information for the blog hop. I enjoy blog hops and visited each blog to get caught up. Have a wonderful creative day!

  9. Years ago there was a QAL where the blocks had a crochet border. You could combine both!!!!
