Here is another great gift idea….and ya know, Mother’s Day is just around the corner
I made these along with the round Facial Cleaning Pads for Vee but before I hit that great sale on Sugar N Cream yarn when I made Brady’s Easter Chick Beanie hat so the colors shown above are the colors from my kitchen but that worked out just fine as you will read ahead.
I had never heard of or seen a ‘Tawashi’ but in my opinion they looked like they would be a little easier to use than the round face washing pads. Vee reported that she likes the Round Facial Cleaners better and they are better for removing eye make up. Then she mentions she has seen similar items like this used as Kitchen Scrubbers so this stack of crochet Tawashis found their way into my kitchen where they are marvelous at fitting right in my hand to wipe off plates, the high chair try or even scrub out the bottom of a skillet. This week they will get a new companion as I replace the cream, purple and green dishcloth the girls used to clean up a huge nail polish spill.
The pattern takes only about 10 minutes to whip up and is a great way to use up some scrap yarn. And of course, these pads, as the previous post, are machine washable.
You can get the pattern here at the Shh, I’m Counting Blog by a talented lady name Marte. The link is here: http://arpelia.blogspot.com/2008/09/super-simple-tawashi-flower.html While you are there check out her patterns. I am dying to make the beautiful ‘ridiculously huge pom pom hat’ on her site that is crochet with earflaps using ThickThin yarn.
