Everyone has their favorite chore and washing dishes is one of mine. But, let's be honest, I don't LOVE it. Still, I would rather wash dishes than fold laundry! Yeah, I said it. There is no wrong or right chore that is better than the other. My theory is that just like crocheting, knitting, or sewing I need to keep my hands busy. And I personally think the warm to hot water helps my hands relax after a lot of crafting. It's like a hot bath for your hands with a bit of movement to stretch those hand muscles! But also that's maybe what I tell myself so I can actually get up and do dishes, lol.
Either way, with or without a dishwasher, I will continue to wash dishes so why not crochet some! They have been long overdue creations here on my blog and I am happy to set free one of the few that I have planned to the crafty world!
I hope you enjoy and leave a comment on what you think about it down below!
Let's get started!

Sometimes I get inspired by just looking at the yarn and this happened as I walked around Hobby Lobby. My eyes were drawn to these pretty and vibrant colored yarns! They are by the company Yarn Bee which has a variety of beautiful yarns overall! I highly recommend checking out their Soft and Sleek line! This yarn mentioned in this post is SCRUB-OLOGY SCRUB IT. I used Lime and Orange.
Warning- I will say the only thing I disliked about this yarn is how easy it unravels! Once you remove the paper sleeve it is game over! BE CAREFUL! There will be an entire unraveled skein everywhere without trying much so I suggest using a yarn sleeve. You can purchase or make one yourself like the one I made HERE. A long piece of ribbon will also do the trick.
