FO Friday

I wasn't sure that I would have a project for FO Friday this week! But then I remembered that I had finished another Swiffer cover that didn't have pictures yet.


So here is my second Swiffer cover for my aunt! More pictures and information are on the Ravelry page for my project. This is a cover for a regular-sized Swiffer. I have at least one more regular-sized one to make before my aunt's birthday on the 28th! But these small ones go so much more quickly than the extra-long ones. It only took me two days to make this. I made the whole base part in only a few hours! It's a lot more motivating to work on it too, since it isn't as big.

Anyway, I started a new project! Along with the KAL that my sister and I are doing over the summer, we're going to do a crochet along! We found some of the larger skeins of Bernat Pipsqueak on sale at Jo-Ann Fabrics yesterday, and have started to work on a Star Blanket! I've only worked on it for a little bit this afternoon, and it's coming right along!


This yarn is so soft and fuzzy! It's a little hard to see the stitches though. So sometimes I'm not sure if I'm going through the right places, but it's working out! The only change I'm making is doing two rows of each color instead of only one of white and two of blue. So far so good!

    1. Thanks! My aunt said that these Swiffer covers work BETTER than the store-bought ones! I've never used them (I'm trying to use up the store-bought ones I have), but she liked it enough that she requested more!

      The blanket is so soft! I love it! Thanks for commenting.
