Knitting some dish clothes...

So, in the interest of "going green" I decided to make some dishclothes so I would have something for dishes when I run out of sponges (I used to buy in large packages so I have a few left).

I got some 100% cotton yarn and started knitting. I chose two different colors- one for kitchen clothes and one for washclothes to replace my loofah in the bathroom. I just knitted a large square for the bathroom ones.

But then decided to try something a little different for one of the kitchen ones. OK, to be honest, I didn't keep track of how many I cast on in the first place so it ended up too long. I realized it was going to be giant if I made it square, so I folded it in half and crocheted the edges together to create a square with a pocket for my hand. I also crocheted a little loop to hang it on a hook or over the faucet. I really like how they turned out!

I'm such a bad blogger

I haven't written anything this month!

My hubby and I will be in the throes of packing this weekend. We gave our notice to the apartment manager after a late night of murderous thoughts against the teenagers outside our window. We've complained before and been told to call the police. Well, that doesn't work since the kids run away when the cops pull up.

We were told this time that if we can get pictures of the kids causing the problems the manager can do something about it. Um, I don't want to be up at midnight trying to take pictures of kids I would rather drop large buckets of ice water on. So, we gave up the fight and are moving out. We're not sure where yet. We looked a duplex that would be PERFECT and will find out this weekend if we get it. Otherwise, we have a few more we will be calling about today.

I've been making lots of crafty things recently. I really need to get my butt in gear and post pictures. See, I really am a bad blogger!
