A Little Luxury is a Good Thing

It took awhile....and its not as strong as it was....but I had the desire to crochet something I needed. Since it was a small project, it seemed doable in my circumstances.

I made some cotton bath puffs years ago....gave them as gifts. I made one for myself, too, but I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. It was too small, for one thing and not very soft either. I was looking online for options and someone suggested using cotton chenille yarn. That seemed like a great idea so I did a little online shopping and found Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille in a pretty periwinkle blue, which matches my good bath towels perfectly. Then I found THIS pattern and got to work. This is the result.....

As you can see its not a wimpy little puff although I did up the hook size to an H because of the thickness. Its SO soft and squishy. It took a skein and a half so I should have enough to make one more, as I bought 3 skeins. Not a cheap bath puff but I think I am worth it. I bet you are too. :) 

This is the first time I have picked up a crochet hook since Ron died. I still don't quite feel like tackling anything major right now, but this is a start.

Hope to be back again soon. In the meantime....

Crochet, Away!
