I've been working on socks, as always, and UFOs that somehow never become FOs.
Needing a break, I decided to make a swiffer cover.
Yes, really, a swiffer cover. (For those out of the country this means YOU, Valeria!, a swiffer is like a floor mop where you can attach a disposable cloth to scrub and then throw away. I bet you already knew that, didn't you? )
I did this pattern as written and it turned out like this:
Pretty, and hopefully functional. My family thinks it's weird and gross and why not use the disposables anyway? And this is too pretty to get dirty, etc.
Ignoring them, I decided to make another one.
This is a bigger size that fits my duster mop.
I'm hoping it will work okay, even if it's saggy in the middle.
It gave me something different to do, anyway, which was one of the main points of making them. So there.
Then, someone on M4A pointed out these Spruce Tree mittens. The thumb gusset only increases on one side and not both to make left and right mittens and not one-kind-fits-all. I thought I'd give them a try.
These are using Patons Classic wool in sesame and a strand of Trekking XXL sock yarn on size 7 dpns. So far, so good.
