Spinning, dish scrubbies and dog mats

Here is the fiber I was spindle spinning for a lace shawl. Now I'm spinning the rest of it up on my new wheel...


We have hardwood floors, so I make pads for the dogs to lay on...I found some acrylic fleece in the remnant bin.

Add several layers of quilt batting in between...

Soft places to lay..

I have crocheted two of these, thanks to Tiny Choices, (nice blog), they are fast and super cute. I like them to wash my face with. I like their blog and concept of it, take a look at it, all kinds of good info.

Original pattern from Crochet Patterns Only thanks to Judith Pringle! She has other cute things there also.

They are beginning to multiply, and now my family and friends are getting them. My husband went past and said "that's not a toilet paper cover is it?" He claims an intervention will be in order if I start to cover the TP with knitted items.

I made a few "camo" ones, now the men in the family have their manly dish scrubbies!

May your knitting needles fly as fast as dragonflies....

  1. Your spinning is looking great. Are you having lots of fun with the wheel?

  2. I love the colors in your spinning. Can't wait to see it knitted up.

    I'm going to have to try those scrubbies. They look great.

  3. I don't think I knew anyboy did spinning anymore, that is so cool!! Those cotton candy colours...yummy!

  4. That is so awesome ~ I can't wait to see you get started knitting your own yarn.

    I saw on Twitter that you were talking about minerals. I have been a fan of mineral makeup for years and use Bare Essentials and am a huge fan.
