Being back home and getting in the groove again! Monday was running errands... doing my coupon work and getting one son to martial arts & one son to register for college classes... Tuesday was a day at home spent doing paperwork and messing around in the kitchen! My younger son needed his annual testing done (for homeschooling requirements) and I worked on financial things & baked bread and made a new batch of Kombucha (details on this particular project in another blog soon :-)
A little time in the yard and some energy & time put into Vacation Bible School planning pretty much filled both days!
But of course, I had time to crochet! I posted a picture below with the 6 pretties I will share this week :-)
# 65 Round Sunshine Crochet Dishcloth - Bottom Left - Done in yellow, this is a pretty sunny cloth. Lacy but still a tight enough weave to use for washing up, it will make the job a lot more fun!
#66 - Tangerine Dream Crochet Dishcloth - This one can be done in any two tones (note that I used the 'right' color this time :-)
#67 - Sunshine and Cool Breeze Crochet Dishcloth - I LOVED the color choices on this one. It was a lot of fun watching how it turned out. The 'spokes' of the wheel are done in a front post stitch and look really unique!
#68 - Little Blue Schoolhouse Crochet Dishcloth - Top left. This is another of the single crochet cloths done using a chart for color changing. Not my favorite to make because of the concentration it required, but I really DO love creating things that look like quilts and it turned out superb!
#69 - Nine-Patch Crochet Dishcloth. Top Center Another really pretty quilt-like one that used a unique way of changing colors. I thought it was a bit awkward to do and will do it differently if I repeat this pattern. Great result though and I really liked the colors!
#70 - Shaded Shells Crochet Dishcloth - Top right - The pattern calls for a pretty variegated pink and that would probably have been prettier but I just used it in the Nine-Patch :-) The shell pattern is a bit offset to give it a little lacier look and was fairly simple to do.
So there you go.... hope your summer days are happy ones!
