Reaching the summit

The summit shawl has been in the works for a couple of months now. I have decided to make it really long. Like I said before, I stop from time to time to make something else. This pattern is really tedious! Besides I am adding 15 more columns; 25 wave-sets total. I prefer it to be the size of my wingspan or longer).
I learned how to twist the stitch and it really helps to anchor the yarn so the gap looks more defined. .
In the meantime, I finished up the fussy white scarf. As I had a lot of yarn leftover, I knitted a hat and pair of mittens. The entire set came out really nice.

For the longest time I’ve been contemplating the idea of learning crochet. I find it to be very intricate, specially reading the patterns and charts. They are kinda of undecipherable for me.( I have a plan B though, just in case.)
Then, surfing the net, I found Ana Paula and she posted a couple of step-by-step tutorials that has motivated me to get started on a beginner small project (making a granny square)
A couple days ago, I was searching some Japanese sites and I bumped into a scrubbie named Tawashi. They really caught my eyes and I even found a tutorial video here.
I loved these ones and there’s even an anti-bacterial yarn for sale at Etsy. They are supposed to be really scritchy-scratchy and they might be perfect for scrubbing my dishes before going into the dishwasher!
Look these ones .

We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.
