Continued Journey into Dishcloths ~ Saturday AM, July 14th, 2012

 Saturday AM, July 14th, 2012

I plan on having a simple kind of day.  Dishes, etc.  ha ha.  I do have a new recipe that I want to try today.  Publix was demonstrating it the other day and so I grabbed the recipe. I really need to go to the store, but I don't feel like it.  Maybe later today, or even tomorrow.  I also have another pattern for a dishcloth that is a retro one that I want to try my hand at.  That may happen today too. ha ha.

I am on a roll.  I love this pattern for the dishcloths, which can also be used for washcloths as they are cotton, and so soft. 

If anyone has a pattern they would like to share with me, I would love it.. 

Here is the pattern for the ones above if anyone is interested in it.

  1. I find crocheted dishcloths much better than store bought ones. The ripples and bumps are good for wiping benches and cleaning the stove too. I made some to be used as wash cloths, they do the trick lol.

    I LOVE the colours you have chosen, the pink is so pretty, but I especially like the yellow and white one, it must look like sunshine in your kitchen. I am going to do a yellow one next time I'm making dish cloths.

    Thanks for posting the pattern too, I normally just do single crochet around the edge but your edging is much prettier.

    The ones I make are a boring pattern, it's just usually a square of hdc. I keep meaning to do an actual pattern, there are so many lovely ones out there, eh, maybe next time.

    Hope you are well Denise xx

  2. Thanks Nicole. I have seen your work, and it is beautiful. I love the colors too. If you want the yellow and white one, I can look and see if they have it. (They are so bad about their cotton yarns). If they have it, I could send it to you.

    Take care Nicole, and thanks for always joining in.
