At one point I considered taking up crochet and did a few small projects. But, my sister is the expert hooker in our family. I didn’t want to step on her toes and have enough paper crafting and mixed media projects to keep me busy for a lifetime.
She finished up two 30 inch doilies that she is making into a head board. Next on her list was wash cloths for me. She had done a few quick test ones for me earlier. We had a long conversation about what I liked about them and what I wanted my wash cloths to be like. Who knew that this could be so complicated?!? Apparently, I want something that is different for a wash cloths and not necessarily in the crochet sweet spot. I wanted ones that were thick and luxurious, floppy, not scratchy, and absorbent.
My sister went on a quest to see if these wash cloths were possible. She found a silk/bamboo yarn and learned a Tunisian Crochet stitch for me! Isn’t she great. She isn’t thrilled with the scalloped edging, so I assume future versions will have a different edge.
Also…the wash cloth is PURRFECT. So soft, floppy, and absorbent. Now I need more. 🙂
