Full of Surprises

I finally got around to recording a second episode of the podcast. Life is a funny thing and is full of great surprises. My best friend had a surprise wedding this weekend! I couldn’t be happier for her. They are a great match. I taught my first ever crochet class that same day. It went great! Everyone finished their projects and were super excited to know that they can make more difficult things now.13084097_10153329757182202_1420571691_n

I got them to make these face scrubbies. They weren’t too thrilled at first. At the end, however, they realized how useful they really are and how much they have learned. Thus, everyone walked away happy.

Here is a pattern if you want to make one for yourself.


1. 1 ball of dishcloth yarn

2. 5mm hook

3. Tapestry needle

4. Scissors

Gauge is not important is this pattern.
