I love the usefulness and cleanliness of crochet scrubbies! The Hexagon Dish Scrubby has lots of texture so it can scrub well. You can make it larger to be used as a trivet as well. If you make 7 or 8 of them, you can use a new one every day and then toss them in the wash once a week. This makes them more clean, more green, and more affordable then disposable sponges.
Now that you have your creepy-crawly Spider Placemats that we made last week, how about rounding out your set with some Spider Coasters! Now you can protect your tables and freak out your guests all at once. You could even join together a bunch of these little squares to make a table runner or a scarf, just get creative and have fun.
What’s that under your plate? It’s a spider!! Celebrate Halloween with these quick and easy to make Spider Placemats, a fun a creepy addition to your holiday decorations. I made mine with an orange background, but you can make a whole set with a different color background for each one, as there are plenty of awesome colors of Lion Brand 24/7 yarn.
The diamond shaped post stitches on this washcloth give it great texture and visual appeal. Pamper yourself with this 100% cotton washcloth in a generous size. The Cascade Yarn Ultra Pima Paints comes in a variety of colors to match your decor. The Strand of Diamonds Washcloth is part of the CAL Central Washcloth CAL.
A table runner for the holidays? Which holiday? With this table runner you can change the colors for any holiday of your choice, or just to match your décor. This slip stitch table runner is worked lengthwise with a new yarn used for every row. All the ends are then used to create fringe for the ends of the runner that hang off the table. The slip stitches add a nice design, and a little texture. This table runner is a great way to get in the holiday spirit.
An update of a golden oldie, easier to make and an updated yarn suggestion.

This was one of the first patterns I designed; I have updated it to make it easier to follow, and to use a yarn that is not discontinued. It was originally designed to take the place of a glass inset on a table at my friend’s tea shop. The ends can be made longer to make this a long table runner, or they can be kept as is for a short table runner or a table topper.
I’ve been making lots of soup lately and microwaving leftovers for lunch. Those bowls sure get hot!! A couple weeks ago I saw microwavable bowl cozies made out of fabric to save your hands from those hot bowls. It seemed to me that I could crochet and knit some, so I did!! Here is the crochet pattern.
