Could it be that we are halfway done with the year of projects blog project? Wow – until I typed in the subject line, I hadn’t thought about it.

I did get some time to crochet this week. I spent most of it crocheting dish and wash cloths for Christmas presents. I have created a facial scrubber and will work on it to perfect it before posting a pattern on the blog. You can look for that in the next few weeks.

I am also going to start doing “Fresh Off the Hook” or FOTH on YouTube. It’s like a big FO Friday only with vlogging. There are several people who do it. The list is maintained by Marcelle, or onevirtuouswoman on YouTube. If you are interested, you can subscribe to my YouTube channel. I will be posting my FOTHs on Mondays.

I have also begun putting some of my WIP Wednesdays on YouTube simply because it is a lot easier than taking a bunch of photos, transferring them, and then writing a blog post. I’m lazy that way :P

I did take off the 2 sets of golf club covers from my list. Why, you ask? Because I started the pattern and quite honestly, I wasn’t feeling it. The size was all wrong and I didn’t like how they turned out (I made 3/4 of one before throwing in the towel). I think that I could make my own pattern that I’d like more; however, I just don’t have the time right now to do that. If I decide to make them for the guys’ birthdays, I’ll add them to the “added” list. 

I really don’t have much more to say other than I am going to go put more of a dent into my cotton stash with some more dishcloths a few folks from work have ordered.

Because I don’t want to leave you without a photo, here is quite a silly photo I took of myself after playing restaurant with my youngest daughter. I call this: banana brow.

Happy Crocheting!

    The year is flying by, isn't it? I hope your exam went ok.

    Totally in awe of everything that you have done. Small Girl is deeply impressed by your “banana eyebrows, mummy!”

    Fortunately the weeks get longer and there are more hours in each day as the deadline approaches, aren't there? I'm counting on that for my Christmas plans!

    Oh no, I wish you hadn't mentioned the “half way” thing as I'm nowhere near half way through my list :( 

    Looks like you are making great progress though!

    Ha ha … love the banana brow picture .. what a hoot !!  I'm inspired by your ideas of washcloths for Christmas gifts – think I might have to whip up a few.  I have a couple of Secret Santa gifts to get ready so these may be good for those.  Have a good week.  xoxox

    Time flies by so fast.  Glad you got some hookin' done.  You look like such a fun mama.  Your daughter is very lucky.
