My dogs new bandana's











I crocheted Tex and Ladybug new bandana's. Tex's was made with 2 oz. of Vanna's Choice in "denim mist" and measures 16" across the top. Ladybug's was made with about 1 oz. of RHSS in "candy print" and measures 9" across the top. They are just plain old 1/2 granny squares - very quick and easy to do.

Projects with cotton


I've been crocheting hotpads and dishcloths in the morning before work and here they are. I've found that the Creme de la Creme is my favorite followed by TLC Cotton Plus. The hotpad pattern (the 2 at the top) is my own and it was posted Aug. 22nd.
