to try and keep my mind focussed on one thing when I'm hyper, I crochet. it calms me enough to be able to try and sleep during these trying times. it also helps pick me up when I hit a low point too so all round it's a great device for mysanity hahaha!!
the past few days have been hard so I've a few washcloths to show you all.

this one does lie flat, but it was breezy in my garden. it's about 8" point to point.

this one is partly from a pattern in a 1970s craft book, but the border is all me. 7".

this one isn't meant to sit flat. it's crinkly for scrubbing dirty pans or bodies. 9" if pulled flatish.

this one is my second fave. it started out it was going to be a circular one but it started teling me to add points. so I did. accidentally it's got 10 points that fit really well together. 7".

finally, "sampler" washmitt. this comprises of a lot of scatterbrained standard uk crochet, tunisianwork, and there's even a bit of french knitting in there.

I used cheap, unbleached, undyed "dishcloth" cotton and a 4.50 hook. sorry about the dangly threads, I can't find my large eyed needle.

Cool. I'm great at producing random crochet motifs, but not so good at finding a use for them. I'm going to try doing a few in scrubbing/cleaning cloth friendly stuff. Maybe then Him Indoors will stop saying "Very nice dear, but what's it for?"

I know what you mean, I use yarn as dope too Smiley
I like the washmitten, the different techniques look great together, and wow, you can do tunisian. With the washcloths, you could do more, dye them in different colors (or not) and then work them together for a bigger item. They'd look real cool together.
