Crochet Cords Tutorial Link

I was browsing around in the Crochet section of Knittinghelp.com just recently and came across a question regarding crocheted cording. Someone was interested in crocheting a cord to use in the waist of her knitted shorts. One of the responses included a link to Daphne's Tutorial Page on Crochet Know How. On this page Daphne had a little picture tutorial for three different types of crocheted cording: Slip Stitch Cord, Parallel Chain Cord and Lobster Stitch Cord.

I thought I would share that with you in case you are in need of some crocheted cord options on one of your projects. These could be used as drawstrings for purses, straps for a child's dress or shirt, embellishments for pillows or bags or other crocheted or knitted items.

I would like to do a video tutorial on each of these cords so I have put that on my list of things to do for Hooked On Needles. But today I don't think there will be any of that. Instead I will be taking my oldest to urgent care to have her finger examined. She closed the cash register drawer on it last night while working at our local grocery store, and my husband and I both are of the opinion that it is most likely broken. Being the dedicated student that she is, she went to school this morning and will be dismissed after the time necessary to be marked present for the day!

I've been cranking out these cotton dishcloths though, and will share pictures of my finished stack tomorrow. Some of them will be used as part of my Pay It Forward gifts to Myra, Jane, Leah and Mrs. Bubba. So, ladies, if you see any design or yarn color that strikes your fancy, please let me know so I can make you some that you will like. A variety of them will be going to the high school PTO for an upcoming fundraiser.

What kind of fun projects are you working on in between all of life's little curve balls?

Happy Stitching!
