My grandma has recently had knee surgery and is forced to have a walker. She is none to happy about it, by the way, but she is being a good sport none the less. She needs a bag for her walker so she can keep her phone and other necessities handy so I totally said I would make her one.
Without further ado, I present the Basic Walker Bag. It's a simple BASIC design that will work great for men and women. A must in charity projects. It will fit most walkers on the front or side. Feel free to make many for your local nursing homes and veterans programs.

and clip level to row 40. Fold the top edge up and clip level to row 52. Make
sure the pockets are on the same side as each other.
Now, Ch.30, slip stitch back down the chain, Sc 11 (this should bring
you to the other pocket), Ch.30,

To use on walkers, fold bag over the bar with the pockets out. Secure with ties. This bag can be used in the front or the side of the walker.
Every new year, I feel the urge to give my house a good cleaning. I am not a shabby cleaner normally but stuff seems to pile up at the end of the year. It seems, I usually start in the kitchen and I noticed that my dishcloths are getting kinda yucky looking. Some have even managed to get into the garbage disposal and got chewed up. :( What's a girl to do? Make some new ones of course and share the new pattern with all of you!

Wow, it's been awhile since I have posted anything. The Christmas season is killer for me so I don't post much during that time. Anyhoo, now that the rush is over, I have been able to continue working on what I was designing. Here is a sneak peak. It's still in progress as long as a different version. So far, I love them.
