It's Summer and hot !

I know in a lot of areas the weather is HOT, HUMID, STICKY and not the kind of weather that is comfortable to knit or crochet with wool or acrylic. However we all know that creativity brings us pain relief.What to do?
COTTON! It is very cooling and just the project to bring to the beach! So pack up your crochet hook and make a summery dishcloth! How about leaving a comment and telling me if creating it gave you some joy?
Check out these Free Crochet and some unusual Crochet dishcloth patterns bless you all, grace

Another Cowl Pattern for keeping breezes away...

Dear ones.. If you have face pain, and need to protect your face from a breeze.. OR if you are a Fashionista and want to add a cowl to your wardrobe, see this nice plain cowl. The pattern is free! Check it out!

How are you doing today?

Dear ones, sorry my posts have been late. I have had THE Flu plus other medical issues ON TOP of what I already have.
But now to some fibery yarn talk.

Is it just me or does anyone else have problems with knitting cotton? I tend to knit too tight anyway... I have wanted to make a bunch of white washcloths for the kitchen. I figure then bleach won't kill the color! Lol!
I was trying my own patterns and gave up on knitting... I used crochet... basically LOOSE single crochet on a size M hook. But I so much want to KNIT!
I am trying to learn lace work as well. I am once again trying lace... Today I am go ing to be working on a feather and fan pattern off the label of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton. They ask for size 4 - 5 needles..but with my history of TIGHT needles I wonder what size i should use? Any advice or lace pattern that is easy for a dishcloth? Let me know... and thanks so much
