Baby's T is for Turtle Washcloth

Well I am once again packing. This time they say for 7 weeks, but it always seem to run over. I have to pack an entire suitcase of yarns, patterns, hooks along with hard hats, steel toed boots and band-aids. Since we will be at the site for at least 12 hours a day, most of my crocheting and knitting are on the drive out and back. I don't even know how many miles it is to California..............

Baby's T is for Turtle Washcloth

This is my design for a small washcloth for baby, it blocked to a 7 inch square. It has the letter T on it but you can easily leave that part off. I gave it a tickle eye, just double knot a piece of worsted cotton (I used Dark Brown) leave a tail. Thread a tapestry needle and pull the knot through the washcloth where you want the eye. Make sure you go through the yarn and not a hole. Once through, tie another not as close to the fabric as you can, repeat. Now cut both sides to just barely above the knot ( aka the tickle part).

Will you have a computer wherever it is you're going so you can update? If not, I'll miss your comments and updates!

Hope you have a safe trip.

Re: the little clothespin dress...
no your not getting older....you are remembering a more simple time
in your life, as am I....that is what I am striving for...simplicity
in a complicated world.....at some point...backwords can't be too bad a thing....for it brought about a
special memory for you...it is a good thing...a happier,more simple



Sherry said...

i am hoping you are ok, i haven't heard from you in a while, MIA?

Hi Barbara,
Always looking for simpler...I want to move from this huge noisy city, with its 80,000 some people to a small town...so much involved which has to thought about, the kids,jobs,relocating....If money were no object...it would be different...a BIG obstacle...so I have to try to keep it simple where I am for now...but it is an oxymoron... the canning...no horseradish for me....do you process you emu & ostrich, or do you buy it already purchased? Do you live in the US? Have a great day...Faith

Faith said...

Oh yes there is always tomarrow, the stuff dreams are made of....55 acres definately more than a stones throw away from anybody.....that is alot of clothesline hee-hee....we gotta have those maybe somedays.....it gets us thru doesn't it... I love the smell of the tomatoes too, there is nothing like it...I actually wound up not starting them yesterday....but did simplify
in other ways.....Have a great day...
