Recently I have adopted yet another “organization system” for all my design ideas. I am, by nature, very disorganized, which presents a problem with all the projects and yarn 😅
This new system is simply putting labeled sticky notes on my wall so I can quickly grab the projects that need my attention. I keep things lively by having about 15 wips going at once, but sometimes projects fall through the cracks.
When I went through some long-forgotten bins, I found a crochet bath mitt that I knew deserved to be finished and sent out into the world.
This mitt can replace your shower loofah (which if you haven’t done research on how icky they are, either stay in blissful ignorance or switch ASAP 🤣), and when made with my suggested yarn, it’s super easy care: just toss it in your washing machine!
CROCHET SPA SET
The pattern pack also includes a soap pouch, which helps create a better lather as well as helps the soap to dry it out in-between uses, and a face scrubby pattern.
It may just be my color choice, but when I finished them, I was reminded of sand dollars 😍.
The full pattern with all three designs is included in my shops and the Endless Bundle BUT, if you keep scrolling you can get my crochet soap pouch for free! I made it with Lion Brand Just Hemp, so it supports your efforts to shrink your carbon footprint, and also helps makes your routine super easy because it’s machine washable!

I am happy to report that since implementing my stupidly simple system of sticky notes, I have finished 3 projects that were sitting in a sad, dark bin, and I hope work my way through the rest of them quickly.
Here’s to a productive, organized and crochet filled 2023!
