Kitchen Scrubby

My family made a quick trip to Hobby Lobby which is close to an hour away and I found Red Heart Scrubby yarn.  Some how I have never come across this yarn before and HAD to have it! Our dishwasher is broken so it was a perfect time to make some scrubbies to use in the kitchen so that I didn’t have to spend a ton of money on some.  I love that I can just toss these in the washer and reuse whenever I want to.  You can make soooooo many  with just one skein of Red Heart Scrubby yarn.

 

Materials:

Red Heart Scrubby yarn (any color)

Sugar n’ Cream yarn (any color)

H hook

Directions:

Using Red Heart Scrubby yarn

Round 1: dc 12 in MR

Round 2: *2 dc in each dc* around (24)

Round 3: *dc, 2 dc in next dc* around (36)

Round 4: *dc 2, 2 dc in next dc* around (48)

Round 5: *dc 3, 2 dc in next dc* around (60)

F/o.

Using Cotton yarn

Round 1-4: *repeat same as Scrubby yarn*

Round 5: *sc 3, 2 sc in next sc* around (60)

F/o.

Assembly:

Whip stitch the pieces together all the way around  leaving 15 stitches not sewn shut.  This allows a hand to be inserted into the middle to get extra good scrubbing. However feel free to just sew all the way around and use as a scrubber without a hand insert.

Frankenstein Framegurumi

The next pattern in my framegurumi line is a Frankenstein Framegurumi!  Since my husband and I really go all out decorating for Halloween, I was super excited when he suggested I make this one.  The great thing about this framegurumi is it can be really cute or spooky depending on the picture you put in it.  So it works for Halloween decor no matter how you like to decorate.  I hope you enjoy!

Toadsworth

Life for a crocheter is a lot like those who don’t. You have a crazy toddler who runs at 100 mph through the house, a husband who has a dozen things distracting him that you have to help with because he can’t do it without you, a garden to till, a house to keep from slipping over the edge into chaos, a job to pay bills, and that’s just the start.  The difference is in the middle of all that, you also have to take time to just enjoy making something special.  It’s been a while since my regular life has been calm enough to look at my yarn. Toadsworth, for you Super Mario Sunshine fans, is among my most recent forays back into making special things.  As a Mario fan, he seemed like a fun place to start. I hope you enjoy making your own Toadsworth, and feel free to share your thoughts and experiences making him (or playing Super Mario Sunshine).  Keep checking back, because there are more special things to come!

*I used Wolfdreamers Toad pattern on some parts (the feet, arms, face, mushroom top, and vest)  I needed to make sure to give her credit for part of this pattern 🙂
