Sinkmates Pattern Review

If you only buy one dishcloth knitting pattern in your lifetime, make it Sinkmates by Lorilee Beltman.

The pattern is well written and easy to follow.  Plus the finished dishcloths are as cute as they are useful.

The best part, though, is that Lorilee is using this pattern to raise money for charity.  She's donating all of the money that she makes from this pattern to the Special Olympics.

As of July 18th, Lorilee had already managed to raise $2,800!

Handmade Vacation Wardrobe

I get a huge kick out of wearing things I've made myself, don't you?

With that in mind, here are some pictures of my handmade items in action on our Hawaiian vacation.

DIY Crop Top

It's time for the 2nd installment in the One T-shirt, Three DIYs miniseries!

In case you missed it, the first project in the series was a hand stamped t-shirt headband that I've been wearing pretty much all the time since I made it.

This second project is a crop top tank top that's perfect for wearing at the beach when you start to get a little crispy and want to cover up your shoulders.  I wore it when I went stand up paddle boarding (my new favorite activity!) in California last week.

And guess what!  It took less than 5 minutes to make.
