Baby Scrubbie

Made you look! Well you wouldn't want to "scrub" your baby with this as it's more of a gentle washcloth! I made a few things for a co-worker who's having a baby and this one I came up with myself. It's quite simple to make and can be worked up in very little time.

Baby Scrubbie

Size G Crochet Hook
Sugar N Creme yarn

Row 1: CH 20, HDC in 2nd CH from hook and in each CH across. (19 HDC's) CH 1, turn.

Row 2: SC in first stitch, **HDC in next stitch, SC in next stitch** repeat across. CH 1, turn.

Rows 3-15: Repeat Row #2
(if you want to make it larger, just cont with this repeat for the desired length.)

Row 16: HDC in first stitch and in each stitch across. DO not turn.

Row 17: (You are now working around the dishcloth. On the sides, work into the sides of each row.) Work SC, 3 DC's in next stitch. *Skip next stitch, work SC, 3 DC's in next stitch.* Repeat around. Join, fasten off and weave in ends.

Another Cake

So we were having a little going away party at work for 2 of our co-workers. One lady was retiring and one of our engineers was moving to a different area of the plant. I made the cake and decided to do the logo for what we build in our area. Anyway, here it is:

I planned to do the logo with Royal Icing which is much easier to do these kinds of things with, not to mention that it dries hard as a rock and is shiny. I actually did the logo on parchment paper and the humidity was so high that it wouldn't dry as hard as it needed to and didn't work so I ended up having to use regular buttercream for the logo which was very difficult. All in all I think it turned out nice but not as nice as it could have. At least everyone ate the cake! LOL
