With a Hook and Needle



With a crochet hook I whipped up a few dishcloths....tried a simple pattern and it worked up really quick. I did these two this evening.



I've also been doing a little bit of blackwork. Both are designed by Kathy Schmitz.


Well I've been packing up a few things and come Thursday morning I'm headed north to Kansas with a couple of friends to the Rock Creek Hook~In held in Lenexa, Kansas. We plan on making some stops along the way...with one special stop to Primitive Betty's! I can hardly wait.....


Happy Trails....Ginger
