    repairing a granny square

    Had to do this a couple of months ago. The center of a large granny square afghan was chewed by a dog. I crocheted a new center and tried to weave it in. Had to use new yarn since the original was destroyed. The challenge was to weave it in!

    Thanks Tampa Doll! Can always count on you for words of cheer! I have missed your beautiful tables. Your Nov table is exquisite as always! Spent some relaxing time visiting near West Palm beach in Oct. Nice and warm compared to CT!

    Reintroducing myself

    After being away for over a year. Have not done any crocheting since my dear husband died last year. It was hard for quite awhile. I also had surgery on both hands for carpel tunnel and am now recovering from a hysterectomy! Started making some potholders. Hopefully I'm back in the crochet world. From Deep River, Ct Nice to be back

    They are used for washing dishes or if you use a soft enough cotton you can use them for face cloths.
