I am trying to keep up with my commitment to make lovies for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes too! I added 8 more to my total this week, bringing me up to 116 this year :-) I committed to average 5 lovies per week (or 225 by Collection week in November) I am halfway there!
All these dishcloth patterns from Maggie Weldon's challenge can be found at www.bestfreecrochet.com
So for this week, I can share:
#103 Peach Pinwheel Dishcloth on the bottom left of the photo below - NOT my best effort! I did it - but lost track somewhere along the way and missed something so it curls :-( I feel fairly confident that it was not the instructions - it was me.. but I don't like working with thread enough to want to spend the time figuring out what I did wrong and fixing it. I might try this patten in regular yarn sometime though... I looks like it would make a cute baby blanket!
#104 - This Little Piggy Dishcloth - cute, Cute, CUTE! This one worked up pretty quickly and is adorable. There's not much more I can say about it... I do like the way that the eye is crocheted - which makes it safe for babies!
#105 Ice Cream Cone Dishcloth above on the upper left - another fun one! I was looking forward to trying this pattern and it did not disappoint! Easy to follow instructions and a terrific end-product... LOVE IT!
#106 - Shells in a Row Dishcloth pictured above in the upper right row - very pretty - easy to work up. Really nice in a variegated yarn. I made it up for the 4th of July! This pattern will go in my 'do again' collection.
The next four are shown in the photo below.
#107 - FunFetti Dishcloth - pictured on the lower left of the photo below. I liked the name of this one - it even SOUNDS like a good time. This is another one using shells and a variegated yarn. It works up quickly and is pretty
108 - Sunny Day Red Hat Dishcloth on the lower right - Absolutely adorable and works up a lot easier than it looks. Really brightens up the kitchen and will put a smile on the face of any red hatter!
109 -Vintage Check Dishcloth pictured on the upper left - this one turned out really cute. Carrying the threads takes some getting used to but the effect is really nice!
110 - Winter Solstice Crochet Dishcloth - I LOVE this one. It is so pretty and really looks like winter to me.... would be great in a blue kitchen.... combination of colors and stitches makes it an interesting addition to a gift package.
Have a great week and happy yarn things!
