I Think I Can!

I've been crocheting a little bit for a couple of years.  I can't do anything fancy, mostly dish clothes with simple stitches.  Recently though, I came across a web site (I wish I had saved it so I could share it, but I forgot...I'm old, remember? ☺) that showed simple ways to make a cell phone cover.  Hey, I can do that!

I really should have waited until I finish this class, but I was too excited, so I had to try it right away!  I went to the store and picked up a couple different colors of yarn, and came home and got started.
I've been working on a crochet project for a couple of years (it really shouldn't take me that long, I just don't pick it up as much as I should!), so I only had the hook I use for that project, which is a larger hook, so my first try came out a bit too big to hold my phone...
...but it's okay for holding my camera!

Then, I searched and found a smaller hook and tried again...
...this one works pretty well for my mom's pretty pink phone!

But, I still didn't have one for my own phone.  So, back at it for a third time...
I even got a little fancy and figured out how to make a flap to button down and hold my phone from falling out!  It's not perfect, it's a bit crooked, but it works, it fits my phone, and I'm proud of it!

Then, when I finished with that, I made another dish cloth...because that's something I know how to do!  I always manage to lose a stitch here and there (I started this cloth with 40 stitches and ended with 38...who knows where those 2 stitches went, but really, I'm not too worried about it ☺), but still, I end up with a functional dish cloth!

And, that's what I've been up to the last couple of days! ☺
There are a couple other things I want to try to make, but I really do have to finish this class first...I do, right?...but maybe I could just take a few minutes to try these projects...☺


  1. Well, of course you can! I love those dishcloths. My mother-in-law used to make them, but now my daughter does. ☺ They're my favorites.
    You should really finish that other project you're working on! ♥

  2. Look what you did! And with those cute little buttons! YOU!

  3. Good work. No can do the crochet myself but I have knitted a couple of dishcloths in the past. Just wanted to thank you for dropping in on thefeatherednest.

  4. Well done! And I love that cute button!


Thanks for stopping by. Tell me what ya think!
