Well, look at what my crafty mom has been up to! I cannot crochet more than a chain stitch which gets me nothing but a long fat piece of yarn, and knitting needles would be more useful to me as chopsticks, but my mom is so talented (and frugal), she knitted herself a swiffer broom cover that can be washed instead of buying the refills which earns her an A+ on frugality! I personally have never bought into the swiffers because I think they are a scam to get you to keep purchasing their refill do-hickeys. Maybe I’d change my tune if my crafty mom made me a couple of covers. This is for the dry swiffer, not the wet one. She got her pattern from this book:
Mason-Dixon knitting outside the lines : patterns, stories, pictures, true confessions, tricky bits, whole new worlds, and familiar ones, too / Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne ; photography by Gale Zucker.
Then she found this website that has 15 different patterns for the same thing! Amazing! Who would have thought?
We were on the phone together when she swept up with it (after sweeping and mopping that morning) and she said, “you would not believe how much dirt this just picked up!” and sends me this picture of the dirt pile and the bottom of the swiffer:
And I say, That’s it??? That’s all the dirt you had on your floor 5 hours after mopping???? Oh yeah, she has no kids or dogs at home . . .
