I spun this yarn from a bamboo batt from Loop at etsy, and crocheted it into a scarf using this pattern:

The pattern is a lot of fun. I highly recommend it!

I've been bitten by the tawashi bug and can't stop. 

Patterns are in Japanese but have charts.

pig http://konezumiya.ocnk.net/product/885
berry http://konezumiya.ocnk.net/product/882
another chicken http://konezumiya.ocnk.net/product/878
strawberry http://konezumiya.ocnk.net/product/877
penguin http://konezumiya.ocnk.net/product/879

You could use your imagination and make lots of other objects using this shape! It's quick, fun and useful. Tawashi are great for washinig dishes, counters, dusting furniture....I like to use the cheap-o Red Heart acrylic because it cleans better than cotton and dries out faster.  You don't even need detergent or cleanser. Great for getting grease off your stove!

And with these cute shapes, your kids will enjoy helping.....well maybe !

5  Fantail Stitch scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by squambo on: February 13, 2009 10:49:03 PM
This scarf is made from my handspun yarn from 7 baby cakes from Loop on etsy. I dont recall the yardage I got. The scarf is on the small side. But its really pretty and sparkly! Its just your basic shell stitch alternated with a row of chains and SCs and HDCs. The stitch is called Fantail Stitch from the Harmony Guides - 300 Crochet Stitches (Vol. 6 of the Harmony Guides)

7  Sparkly Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by squambo on: December 29, 2008 06:10:32 PM
The scarf here is just a simple mesh pattern, but the yarn is from a Loop batt and then handspun by me.  I added fringe made of plastic rings with single crochet around them, then added a length of chain and attached at different lengths to the scarf ends.

I spun lengths of sequins into the yarn as I made it, and it is corespun around a crochet thread to make it last longer.

8  Floribunda Rose - freeform hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by squambo on: December 29, 2008 05:41:07 PM
I handspun the yarn and then dyed it, and made this freeform hat;

My first attempt at a freeform object!  It's a lot of fun!!!  The wool is Corriedale and Wensleydale, and was some of my first handspun from last spring.

I made one in Moda Dea Ticker Tape "Sunset" yarn, half price at Michael's.  I love Ticker Tape!
The panta turned out really big though, as in WIDE!
