Quick Crochet : Bark Sedge Washcloth

I can still crochet! (I was a little bit worried I’d forgotten how).

Ravelry Details: [ Bark Sedge Washcloth ]

I finally figured out a good project to work on during study breaks; I read and outline for 40-45 minutes and then crochet or knit for the remainder of the hour (rinse and repeat). Washcloths are perfect — and in this case, I got to practice my crochet skills.

It’s a pattern I’ve used before, but unfortunately, I misread the title of the pattern and incorrectly titled my blog post back then (July 2010). And, as I mentioned in my old blog post, there’s a Lion Brand app — and if you use the app, you won’t have to log in each time you search for a pattern or inspiration. You can also use the mobile site if you don’t have an iPhone or iPad.

When I mentioned the Wooly App, I’d forgotten about one of their recent updates — the ability to add photos to your projects and stash. As with similar apps, you can choose to take a photo or add an existing one from your phone’s gallery (I’ve done both successfully). Prior to that enhancement, I was using the Yarma app and it works the same way, though not as seamlessly. My point is — there are fewer barriers now to sharing photos of projects on Ravelry if you have a smartphone and one or both of these apps! I’ll admit to preferring photos shot with a camera (rather than my phone) because it’s ideal for getting photos with lots of detail, but any photo is usually preferable to none.

If you’ve tried one (or both) of these or have any ideas of your own, I’d love to hear them.

    That washcloth looks beautiful! I’m kind of worried that I forgot how to crochet too, but I’m glad you still remember!

    As you know, I’m a fan of doing “cycles” to keep myself motivated and productive, so I love your idea.
