Camping Prep ~ Crochet Projects
The shells are always saved from these walnuts. My older brother and his wife gift me their cardboard egg cartons.
Four dozen campfire starters are in the making today, and I have more shells.
I also took a day off yesterday. Hard to believe? Ha! I did. I did not do a lick of work. Other than my hen chores. My fitbit read under 3,000 steps. That's a shocker.
I got out my pattern book and crocheted a new pattern. Know I can say I've completed the basket weave stitch with knitting and with crochet.
It turned out very thick, and has now been called the "Campercloth." It's a dishcloth pattern, but I'll use it to scrub a dub dub in the camper.
Remember my closet cleaning? The aka "craft storage" area in it? Well, I found more yarn, so guess what else I am torturing myself with?
I've started another scrap yarn blanket. I'm still working away on the scrap rug, baby blanket, seat cushions, and a knitted dishcloth. It's just not right to have only one project.
