I love when Friday rolls around and I get off work (Billing Supervisor for an Internet Company)…  I whirl through the house and do a quick clean up… Then it’s time for WEEKEND CROCHET!!  I sit in my comfy chair,,, Turn a movie or my favorite TV show on… and start crocheting!!!  I have so many projects on my list… Currently I have 4 design patterns on my list,,, Each in a different stage of the process..  This week I am releasing a new blanket… Here is a sneak peek!!

Now on to the Free Crochet Pattern Review!!  Earlier this week I posted a fun pattern to my Facebook page…  Everyone loved it.. So this weekend when I sat down to crochet… I worked up 4 of these great dishcloths!!  The pattern is Simply Square Log Cabin Dishcloths by Deborah Ellis… The pattern was easy to follow and worked up very quickly… and one of the best parts of this great pattern,,, I was able to use up my scraps of cotton yarn!!  So far everyone who I have shown them to fell in love… Well worth trying!!  Click Here to head over to the Free Pattern!!

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…

Floral Face Cloths and a Sweet Twine Basket…. Thanks to Carlee at Alpine Originals for this cute picture!

.

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!
