Coffee and Orange Spice Melt And Pour Soap

Odor neutralizing hand soap, perfect for the kitchen!

Coffee and Orange Melt and Pour Soap by Over The Apple Tree

I've been meaning to do this soap forever. The ingredients have been sitting here looking at me for months! So coffee is known to neutralize odors, which makes it perfect for use in the kitchen. It seems like even after you wash, that garlic or onion smell still lingers on your hands. I thought I'd give this a try as hand soap but you could definitely use it in the shower to wake you up in the morning. It would also be great as garden soap since the texture from the coffee works great to scrub your skin clean.

Crochet In The New Year!

I might not post it online right away, but believe me, I always have something on my hook! Here are a few things that I've been working on. They will be posted in my Etsy shop. If you don't find them, sorry, you're too slow! Better luck next time. I like to try new things and I rarely do the same crochet project more than once.

I have so many patterns saved that I want to get to this year. Check out my free crochet patterns board on Pinterest. Another goal is to make as many projects as I can without buying more yarn. I'm running out of storage! Do you have any crafting goals this year?

1. Autumn Chill Mod Scarf, Pattern by Left In Knots
I finally broke down a couple months ago and tried the Caron Cakes. While I love the feel of this yarn, I think the abrupt color change makes finding a pattern to work with a challenge. Patterns with lots of texture are the key!

2. Neutral Granny Square Scarf, Square Pattern by Penny Davidson
You may have trouble duplicating this square. I edited the original quite a bit to make it smaller. I did join as you go to attach them together. See more about my neutral granny square scarf here.

3. Houndstooth Hat, Pattern at Yarnspirations
I've been searching for a houndstooth hat that I liked and decided to give this one a try. This is actually my second one!

4. Starlet Yoga Socks, Pattern by Lisa Soutendijk
There's a picture of toeless socks floating around Facebook that everyone is loving. Since I've never done anything like this before, I wanted to give them a try. I think I lost little of my vision working on these, this yarn is so thin! I've done doilies before so I don't know why it bothered me so much. Maybe because it was late and I didn't have great lighting? I plan to try some different styles of socks soon!

Neutral Granny Square Scarf

Crocheters Love Granny Squares! I usually think of a mod podge of different colored scraps when I think of granny squares. I think the simplicity of all beige squares gives this scarf a more modern look. I was inspired by this scarf from Eclectic Me.
