Nubby Scrubbers or Pot Holders or Dish Rags

Holiday Pot Holder Sets

I made two sets of these scrubbers/pot holders/dish rags for a family gift exchange. The pattern was really easy and enjoyably repetitive.

I’m not the fastest crocheter, so I could finish one in about 2.5 episodes of Breaking Bad. (And I was still able to pay attention to the plot!)

I can’t wait to make more of these in different colors for my kitchen and bathrooms.  I’m sure I have some great colors in my stash drawer that are ready to be used up!

I made this little towel for my friend Amanda. I had a really good time figuring out the colors for the cake.

I had so much fun stitching this little towel over the holidays. I thought the colors were really fun, and I finished the entire project in about one hour!

Labyrinth

I really enjoyed making this labyrinth. I like to think it was as calming to stitch as it is to trace for meditation.

Also, I love a French knot. So I had to include some in the design.
