First up were a hot matt and a scrubbie made with Scrub It yarn from Mary Maxim. I used the free patterns from their site. They were both fairly straight forward crochet, though I did have to redo a few bits on the the Floral Scrubber. It measures about 5 inches across and I think it is too pretty to be used to scrubbing anything in the kitchen, off to the bathtub it goes.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you

It was last year when I first saw information about knitting tea towels. The cost of the kits was too much at the time, but the idea stuck with me. Recently I came across a pattern for dish clothes with a hanging loop. It occurred to me that if I added more stitches I'd have a tea towel. The pattern is from from Yarnspiration and uses worsted weight cotton. Pattern is called Red White and Blue Dishcloth (to knit).
The small size was knit according to the pattern and the larger was made starting with 86 stitches. The left hand one is a bit small for drying hands, but the one on the right looks just about perfect.
Now I am thinking about the further changes in weather that are on their way and am knitting a cabled cowl for daughter. I'll have photos next week.
Have you started your seasonal projects? I'd enjoying hearing about them. Leave a comment as well as add a link to Mister Linky and I'll be sure to visit with you.
