Knitting and Crocheting

I have been working on a couple of small things lately.

Knitted Dishcloth and Crochet Woven Square.

I’m still knitting dishcloths with the monthly dishcloth group (that’s the purple one).  With the little bit leftover from the cotton ball after a dishcloth, I make strips and add strips of white to create these woven squares.  I think once I get enough of them, I’ll sew them together to make an afghan.

We have three chickens, but by far the one pictured is the most aggressive, her name is short wing.  We also have two cats, the one pictured here is Tux.

The chicken won!

Shortwing really likes to keep her yard “pest” free!

Woven Crochet Square

As I was trolling blogland, I can across this image from A Simple Country Gal blog.  I really liked that this idea would use up scrap yarn and since I am trying to keep up with the monthly dishcloth group, I will be supposedly making two dishcloths a month.  Each dishcloth uses up most of a ball of cotton but not quite all – and there is not enough left to make another dishcloth out of it.  Once I finished up the first dishcloth, I had just a bit of the blue leftover and decided to make the Woven Crochet Square.

It will be very interesting to see how this looks when it is done.
