Sometimes you have to make the best of a bad thing—in this case, a beat-up cane that Carol just can’t
Julie brought in some scarf projects that we featured in previous galleries. The scarves were made from Bernat Mosaic acrylic yarn, which has some really nice color ways. Julie wanted to soften up the fabric a little, so she soaked them in a solution of water and hair conditioner. This worked very well. The conditioner coats the fibers, same as it coats your hair, and makes them more manageable. If you have a scratchy wool project, you might give conditioner a try.
Maxine brought in a bunch of tawashis, spiral scrubbies crocheted out of Sugar and Cream cotton yarn. You can get two tawashis out of one skein. The pattern is free on Ravelry; it was originally written in Japenese with a stitch chart but the Ravelry pattern has been translated to English plus includes a link to a youtube video that gives you step-by-step for making them.
