CROCHET DISHCLOTHS!!!

I promised you a look into my crochet dishcloth gift set, so here are some of them:

  

  
I do not like to block so I steam ironed each dishcloth. I squared some and rolled some and made some into a triangle. Ironing the dishcloths made them look very nice and it didn’t take forever 🙂

I used many techniques and stitches.  I know I have said this before, but here it goes again:  dishcloths are perfect for when you need to practice new stitches and techniques.

For the borders I like two or three rows of the slip stitch and a variation that I did when I got bored with all the SS: I did one SS then one chain then another SS, so the single chain  suspends between two SS.

  


Another border I liked to use is the “scallop like” stitch, where you chain 3 then do 2 double crochets then anchor then a single crochet and repeat.

So, try some of these  stitches and see if  you like them… Hugs!! 🙂 

 

UPDATES ON A TUESDAY MORNING!!

It is already Tuesday morning wow!  I took the day off yesterday from posting, not because I was being lazy, but I wanted to  finish another dishcloth.

This dishcloth was done with  the  FPDC  (front post double crochet) stitch. I like this stitch because it makes a nice rugged dishcloth.

For the border I used the SL (slip stitch). Always  finish your dishcloth with a border, this gives your dishcloth a nice finished look and it makes the dishcloth stronger.

  

 This project is fast and easy.  Your hands will thank you and you can make several without feeling stressed out, which is always welcome 🙂

I am putting the finishing touches on the 2 mandalas for the project in honor of Marinke. Remember the deadline is fast approaching.

I am making one more beanie for the Armed Forces and will give you a peek when finished.

My RR is still unfinished but I am on it. The only thing left is the finishing round, which I like to make a little different so as to give it a finished looked. Hopefully I will post the “Finished Post” for big RR next Monday 🙂

So, what are you doing? did you get several items checked off over the weekend? Let us keep up the momentum, this year is almost over…

So, keep the speed up and stay inspired. Enjoy Today It truly Is A Gift!

 

 

FINALLY FRIDAY

It is finally Friday and I have posted 5 times this week, wow!! and I must say I enjoyed it. I enjoyed hearing from you too.

As you know by now I am on a Crochet Dishcloth frenzy. They  look great in the kitchen and they are fantastic and practical to experiment with new stitches and techniques.

I will post about them when I have them completed. I like the bright neon colors best they make me feel happy that I am washing dirty pans and dishes 🙂 I should add that this does not happen EVER when I am using sponges or store-bought dishcloths, so I need lots of them.

So this is all for now, a nice short post. Have a Safe weekend and enjoy every minute, It Is A Gift..

GREEN DISHCLOTHS/TOWELS

I have decided to use crochet dishcloths to replace my paper towels, so I used my JoAnn’s 60% off coupon to buy Sugar N’ Cream worsted 4 ply thread to make dishcloth/towels.

The colors are pastels rainbow, perfect for Spring and it is my 2 cents “green” living and budget aid 🙂

I am on my third dishcloth. This is experimental crochet since It helps  me to experiment with stitches and practice different techniques.

I will let you know how many dishcloths came out of this 14 oz spool and the designs.

Changing subjects: it is almost time for the Giveaway!!! Stay tuned…

What are you up to on this beautiful Wednesday ???
