Circle Scrubbie - Video

A while back, I knitted up some washcloths & circle scrubbies for a friend of mine and she said she would like to learn how to make them.  We live about 10 hours apart, so I came up with an idea to teach her, make a video!!!  So here it is!!

Below the video's are the pattern, and links to learn other knitting techniques.  :D

Ribbit Ribbit!

I knit up a cute little frog for my granddaughter's 3rd Birthday.  I couldn't just leave it at that, I got the idea to knit her up a blanket with a pocket/pouch to hold the frog! 

Here it is:


I found the pattern here:
