....as a toaster oven cover!
Ever since I first started knitting ballband dishcloths I've had it in my mind to construct a toaster cover. I'm a little bit disappointed in the final results though. The crocheted seams (single crochet and crab stitch edging) are rather wonky. You can get the instructions for crab stitch here. It is actually single crochet done in reverse and makes a very nice finished edging. I had never heard of this stitch until I saw it on Marianne's blog. It does make me happy to be rid of the pain old towel that I had been using as a cover.
Last, but not least it is award time again! Melanie bestowed upon me the Arte y Pico award.
I shall now pass it on to five more blogs. This was very VERY hard for me just picking five! I really wish I could nominate all of the blogs that I find interesting...but I must have some self control this time :)
All of these blogs, Jeanne Knits, Picperfic's Blogspot, Smoking Hot Needles , This Blonde Knits (& Crochets!) inspire me with the projects they show off and this last one Weathertop Farm
I love reading because as a city girl getting a view of the farming life is very interesting!
Now, here are the rules and regulations of the Arte y Pico Award: 1) Pick five (5) blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language. 2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone. 3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself. 4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award (http://arteypico.blogspot.com/)
Congratulations everyone :)
Happy Fourth of July!
