I mentioned months ago I was making these fish shapes to sew into an afghan, they recommend using the CBBC method to attach and I just couldn't figure it out, so I stopped making the fish out of frustration. Yesterday I decided to try it again. I am still not sure if I got it right and the picture doesn't look the best but I am going to keep trying so I will be back to making fish again.
This pattern came from a yahoo group I belong to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BitsandBobs2-SpecialProjects/?yguid=32890921, but I think the pattern is also free on the web if you google fish patterns too.
This is a tube shaped dish scrubber I made yesterday. I saw this idea somewhere, but this was actually my own thought yesterday. I started out to make a dishcloth but stopped and decided to try this version instead. I used the slip stitch pattern, I think I posted the link here before, it makes a very thick sturdy cloth, using 2 contrast colors... I folded it in half and stitched the side together to make the tube. it fits right over your had for a good grip while scrubbing dishes and then can slip over the faucet to dry when done. I'd love to make more of these, my problem is I have lot's of variegated yarn but no solid contrasting colors that match. Sure wish I had money to go yarn shopping.
This is the Apple shaped scrubber/dishcloth I made yesterday at the polls. The color is red, not orange but my camera and lighting is well, primitive, lol. I worked with three men, one of them my son, and they all kept saying they thought it was a HAT, geez Louise... Can't they see it's an Apple, does a hat have green leaves??? LOL
The pattern came from Harvest Moon designs website http://harvestmoondesigns.blogspot.com/ She also has many other patterns both free and for sale, you should check them out.
Another view of that banana, I just loved him... Below is the link to the blog where you will find the free pattern
Okay now that all that is covered I am sure you are wondering why did I title today's blog "Arr Arr Arr, A Pirate says Arr"
Well I heard on the morning news today, it's International talk like a PIRATE day today... So if you comment, make sure you use your best Pirate language, mateys. Arr Arr Arr.
Election day went well, we have a steady flow but never too busy. Out of a possible 382 voters we had 173 show up. They combined two polling places into our building yesterday so there was a little confusion there, and the fact that only 2 parties were voting and people not registered in those parties were trying to vote, but I still enjoy the time there. I get to see my community, we laugh, and I can knit in between, can it get any better then that?
We got home just in time to catch Big Brother, I was a little let down by the finale show... I knew Dad Denoto would win, but they didn't clarify things like Danielle and Nick, Eric and Jessica relationships. I was curious. Most of the girls (most not all) looked very nice in their dresses.
Tonight is church night, so today I will try to take it a little easier on my legs.
Hope you all have smooth sailing on the high seas today, Arr Arr Arr
