Summertime and the Crocheting is Easy


High Summer is upon us when lazy days of sitting in the shade require a different kind of knitting.  Holding wool can be a bit irksome if the heat and humidity are just right.  I’ve been crocheting, actually.  Lady A’s Momma asked if I could make her some face cloths.  She is now almost 6 months old (did I mention before, that there’s a new grandbaby?) and beginning to eat ‘real’ food.  Momma wanted homemade washcloths for the sweet baby face sooooo, of course, I obliged.   Soft cotton/linen blend yarn and a crochet hook were just the ticket.  Just chain about 34 (start in the second chain from the hook) and work back and forth in single crochet (33 st) for about 40 rows.  Work around the entire square in sc with chain 3 loops at the corners.  At the completion of the sc around round, work sc in every other sc and into the corner loops with a ch 3 in between.  Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be perfect…. It will be perfectly lovely!  

Bible Verse for Today:
“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!"  Isaiah 49:15
