Current Obsession

Knitted dish cloths. Making these has turned into an addiction. I've made them from every color I can find, and I can't stop!! At least they are wonderfully useful--the best for washing dishes and wiping down the countertops.

I love to read, but realized that I couldn't knit and crochet and read at the same time. (I do knit and watch tv; and read and watch tv, however); and then, I realized that I could knit and listen to novels on CD. Voila! The solution. A perfect symbiotic summertime pastime.

These are crochet cozies for cans and glasses, made of 100% cotton yarn to absorb all the drips from sweating glasses in the summer. Perfect. No sticking coasters that stick to your glass until halfway up to your mouth and then tumble back onto the table, splashing moisture all over the place. Free pattern here.
You might want to adjust for a particular size glass or bottle.

What do you do for relaxation, you know, something mindless, during the summer?



  1. I'm totally trying the glass cozies. Yours are so cute (and so are the washcloths). I'll have to buy some yarn when I'm in Minneapolis this week.

  2. I knit wash clothes, too. I like the same pattern you used- with Knit 2 and then YO because I don't have to count, so I can watch TV or even knit in the car.
