When I'm invited somewhere, along with the traditional bottle of wine, I always like to bring a special hand made gift. The host or hostess is happy and I end up being invited over and over again! ;-)
It can be something I've canned (my blueberry-chocolate jam is a big favorite), or something I knit or crochet.
On the crochet front, for the past couple of years, one of my go-to choices as been a crochet grocery bag, the famous "filet à provisions". They're really practical, easy to clean (just toss them into the washer and dryer), my friends love them and use them a lot!
I make them in various colours.
Those two are the only ones that are left at the moment... I'd better make a few more...
But, since variety is the spice of life, I thought I should have more crochet choices. So, before I started my sock knitting marathon, I made crochet washcloths in 100% coton to put in my hostess gift stash. Naturally, I also kept a few for myself. ;-)
Although I don't always use the same crochet stitch, I always put a scalloped edge all around, just to make them look more "finished".
Hum... There seems to be a photobomb in the making...
One of my cats always tries to be in the picture and since he can't manage to take a selfie (paws are notoriously bad with fine motor skills) he follows me everywhere in the hope that he'll end up being photographed. ;-)
