Spirals and Baskets…

.

I’m kicking off my summer stock up of crochet to sell with a bang.  With Memorial Day Weekend sneaking up quickly and my Ocean Waves Afghan completed, I am beginning to stock up and crochet as much as possible to have plenty to sell at Alpine Originals.  It is a true blessing to have an outlet to sell my items and the extra money will come in handy for our Annual Mother/daughter School Clothes and Mini Vacation  trip late summer!

.

My head was full of ideas and things I wanted to make, so here is what I made last night…

Spiral Dishcloths….

.

These adorable baskets are just the right size  for storing the little things you need as you’re rushing out the door… I was inspired by several pattern I found online and each one took only 45 minutes to whip up using 2 strands of worsted weight yarn and an I hook!

.

The spiral dish cloths are much cuter in person and were originally inspired by a pot holder pattern, but once I got going I thought they would make a unique dishcloth!  They were a little more work but only about 1 hour and done… These are made of cotton using a G Hook…

I added a few more Floral Face Cloths in Spring Green and Cream and a great Twine Basket with a Spring Green trim…  I made these last week and forgot to show them off : )

.

Lots more on the way to share, and a couple new free patterns on the way!

So here is to Baskets, Spirals and Summer Crochet!

Finished! Ocean Waves Afghan Challenge… Whew!!!!

Just in time!!  I finished up my Ocean Waves Challenge Afghan last night…  Took pictures today and submitted it to the contest!  It turned out just the way my daughter wanted too!  She chose the color scheme and the way the color changes took place… I think she did a great job, and all I had to do is whip it up in one months time!  It feels great to have finished, time to move on to other projects now!!

I found the most wonderful quick project at one of my favorite sites… Petals to Picots!  Kara is one of my favorite bloggers and has great patterns and Link Parties!  A couple of weeks ago she posted a pattern for Flower Cleansing Pads,,, I couldn’t wait to give them a try and I wasn’t disappointed!  They were quick to work up and the pattern is very easy to follow!  Click Here to check out her pattern.  Check out what I made in just a couple of hours last night…
