Sparkly Scrubby Dish Mat (FREE Pattern)

I got some pretty yarn to play with a few weeks ago! First up is a new sparkly scrubby yarn!!

I searched for a new design that hasn't been done yet, so what better project to do to go with the other free dish scrubby projects than to have a dish mat to go with it?

I found myself having to take breaks making this as it is very rough on your hands but trust me, the end result is beautiful!

So, without further ado, here is the pattern!

Where'd you go?!

Hi everyone! I haven't gone far!

Since the crocheting "season" has slowed down I have been concentrating on working on my book! EEEK! I'm working with a Scout that will be presenting my sample book to MANY publishers this month! I'm so excited to see if I can knock this off my "Vision Bucket List"!

Also, I am in the process of doing Candidacy Screening tests to see if I am eligible for Cochlear Implants. Another EEEK! moment! I'm nervous, excited, scared all rolled into one.

Thank you everyone for continuing to come back and check up on me here and on my facebook page and for your concerns.

I Love You All!!!
