Ravellenic Games 2014 – Owl Scrubbie

One of the best things about participating in the Ravellenic Games is I’ve been encouraged to go ahead and try several small projects that I’ve come across. I love smaller projects because, while I do enjoy other parts of the process, having a completed project is my favorite part of crafting.

There are so many cute owl projects out there these days, thanks to their popularity. I have several in my favorites list that I hope to get to one day, but I thought a variation on this pattern might be a great one to whip up for the games.

I love the ideas behind the original pattern, but I made some adjustments to make it work for the supplies I had on had. I don’t currently own any nylon that I can use, so instead I made a one layer small owl scrubbie. I love little cotton scrubbies this size for getting down in cups and pots and bowls and really being able to get some power in your scrub.

I’m happy with how this little guy turned out and picture many more cute owl scrubbies in my future. It’s a great stash buster. Recognize that cream yarn from my frogged babydoll dress?

Ravellenic Games 2014 – Aerial Unwind

I love Ravelry, the wonderful site for knitters and crocheters. They do a wonderful set of games that coincide with the Olympics. I’ve never participated before, but was invited to join a team this year and I’m so glad I was! I’ve had a great time participating in the games and it’s given me a shove to get back into crocheting/knitting and complete some projects I’ve had on the list for awhile. It’s been a lot of fun!

My first event that I decided to take on was the Aerial Unwind, which was to find a project and frog (unwind) it. I’ve had this uncompleted Babydoll Dress in my bag for years (originally started in 2008) and I didn’t see myself ever finishing it and, even if I did, I honestly don’t know if I would wear it at this point in my life. I decided that it was time to let this project go and would be the perfect entry for the Aerial Unwind.

Look at all of the yarn I got out of this project! I’ve already made a small project from some of this yarn and still have a lot to go!
