Odds and Ends

Granny square mug cozy

I've been thinking of small projects to make with granny squares lately and happened to find a free pattern for a mug cozy by Earth and Sky over on Ravelry. I whipped one of these up with some oddments of leftover yarn in bright colors. My battleship gray work cubicle is now a little cheerier.

What else is on my hook?

I finally started making the Cast Off Chemo Crochet Wrap by Cari Clement that I bought on Ravelry to support one of my favorite charities also called Cast Off Chemo. I'm not much of a pink person, but this is a happy color for spring. (Notice in the photo that other harbinger of spring at Casa Greenhook - a dandelion. Such a cheery little flower, right!?)

I wrote about Cast Off Chemo in an earlier post. New patterns have been added to the fundraiser since that then so check them out over on Ravelry. Maybe you'll find the perfect pattern for your next project. Every little bit helps to bring us closer to the day when we cure breast cancer and other cancers without having to go through chemo hell.

Oooh! Look at this one! The Amagansett Shawl by Susie Allen. Pretty! I think I'll make a purchase!



  1. LOVE the mug cozy! If you have any of the yarn left, you could make a "mug mat" or placemat or both to further cheer up that cubicle. You've also given us a lovely reminder of to USE up those small bits of yarn. The mug cozy would make a nice gift! Great patterns re. Cast Off Chemo. I hope more people get involved.

    1. Thanks, Gina. I used all of that yarn in the mug cozy. It's so satisfying to use up little bits of leftovers! I have a bag full of them though. I was thinking about a placemat or two.

  2. That little dandelion is such a harbinger of spring! And all your crochet is absolutely lovely.
