This week was spent with a LOT more crochet dish cloths than I could have ever imagined. I made a lot. I used up a full 1 pound ball of the Bernat cotton so I have a lot of blue dishcloths laying around now.

Related to cleaning, I also made a fun dust mitt. I used pom-pom yarn. This is a pattern I definitely want to write up but need to free up my counter to do so – you see, this is a pattern for those who knit and crochet.

 It worked up relatively quickly – perhaps 2 hours. I have used it on a few small things but I think I’ll be dusting the televisions today.

Let’s see – what else….

I started knitting a chemo-cap for my friend’s son-in-law. He is undergoing treatment now and has shaved his head. I tried to take a picture of it but it is grey outside here and the color of the hat is dark blue. Perhaps I’ll be able to get a better picture of it once I finish it and can get it outside. I’m thinking I have about 5 more rows of knitting to do on it then I will start the decreases. I bought some dpn’s yesterday so I would have at least 6 in the same size as my needles. I’m really hoping I do ok with the decreases.

As for a pattern on the hat – I made it up. Reading knit patterns is something I’m going to have to get better at. Crochet patterns come easy (years and years of experience) – knit patterns not so much.

Ok – that’s all I really have going on. My percentages are looking pretty good considering where we are at with the holidays and such and all that I have finished. I cannot believe I’ve made over 90 items in the last 6 months. C-R-A-Z-Y

So with that said – here is a picture of the pumpkin pies I made (there were 4 then one disappeared *laughs*) and a list of things I’ve made with links to patterns where available.

    Your list makes me tired, your pies look yummy.  Cleaning….don't spread that around.  I'm not sure I'd want to take time to make something cute, like your mitt…then get it all icky from cleaning.  lol

    Well done your percentages are looking really good.  I love the duster mitt, what a great idea.  Your pumpkin pies look yummy too! Have a great week!

    I am not a fan of pumpkin but everyone said they were delightful. The first bite of the first pie brought a tear to the man's eye (I really wish I were kidding LOL)

    Thanks! I'm hoping to get the pattern up for the mitt soon once I count everything and remake it (to confirm)

    I know that if I didn't clean (which I actually HATE to do) that I'd go insane. My chaotic schedule means that I cannot keep chaos around me. Drives me insane – the mitt was a weird thought when I saw something in the store that resembled the pom-pa-doodle yarn.

    Good idea using the pom pom yarn. I just did my first project using that and was amazed how easy it actually is to use!

    That's an awesome dust glove. I'd absolutely knit or crochet one or more of those! So cute!
