a quick Christmas project
Sunday morning, Nancy and I decided to spend our time sitting around in PJs on the couch. I'm overtired from the last week - too much work, too much stress and way too little sleep. And Nancy doesn't need a reason; hanging out in PJs is one of her favourite ways to spend a Sunday morning.
While drinking coffee and catching up, we decided to pick up the crochet hooks and some scrap yarn to try out this pattern for a Snowflake potholder. Ever since I saw this pattern crocheted by Allison on her Dominant Hands blog, I'd been itching to give it a go. It's meant to be a pot holder with two squares crocheted back to back, but Nancy and I decided to work our squares in Handicrafter cotton and call them dishcloths.
Both our squares were done in no time, so I suggested that Nancy give them as a hostess gift at her first Christmas party later that afternoon. Yes, you read that right; Christmas parties are starting already! Seems much to early for me!
This time tomorrow we'll be halfway to Cuba. I doubt we'll have internet access, so I'll likely be offline for a week or so. But there's bound to be lots of pictures to share when I get back!
