Drive By Blogging

I'm actually supposed to be ironing right now, and don't have much time to blog, so I'm just going to do the drive by thing.

I made this Bath Puff from Priscilla's Crochet and this Soap Saver from JFP Crochet Club. The puff worked up in about an hour and I used an I hook and Sugar and Creme confectionery colors cotton. The soap saver took about 20 minutes, using the same hook and yarn.

It would make a great addition to a gift basket all wrapped up in tulle. I've decided that tulle can make everything look good. I want to go buy lots of it and wrap everything in it. Be might see pictures of Piper wrapped in tulle soon. ;)

Tomorrow, Janet and I are going to the preview of the Lion Brand studio in Union Square. I'll bring my camera and hopefully they'll allow me to get some pics.

Gotta iron!

How cute! I love how that looks wrapped up in the tulle!

Ironing - bleahh! I absolutely, totally, despise ironing. Me and the iron don't get along. I've scorched and/or melted a few of my favorite clothing items. I won't iron my daughter's shiny nylon school gym shorts for fear of melting them. Even when I don't scorch anything, I can never get the wrinkles out of anything, so matter how much pressure and/or steam I use (I like stretchy clothes because they don't wrinkle easily - pitiful, huh?!). I told my husband I'm jealous because his clothes always come out so crisp and neat when he irons them, LOL!

I am totally jealous of you too, for getting to go to that Lion Brand studio! I'll be looking for pictures on your blog

I'd forgotten about crocheting soap savers! I first made them several years ago and gave them as gifts for Christmas. I think I'll make some this year. :-)
I'll have to try that bath puff as well. :-)
Thanks for the links and good luck with ironing. I hate ironing!:-)
