The last couple of months have been a frenzy of crocheting! I turned in my last lovie to Operation Christmas Child on November 18... if you have followed my handwork this year, you'll remember that a "lovie" is a mini-blankie.... something soft for a child to "love on". For my purposes, it is a simple granny square of a size that can be rolled up and put in a shoebox gift. I had a 2011 goal to make an average of 5 per week.... I did that - but was not pro-active enough to do it weekly! Late October and early November passed in a haze of crocheted squares.... total..... drumroll, please... 261!
Since that November date, I have been working steadily on a number of other projects.. most particularly hats and other gifts I had put aside for lovie production. Most notably.. a layette set in requested colors but I couldn't decide which was the main color and which the accent... so I made both!
Next week, I share some hats & grandbaby sweaters!
In the meantime, here are more dishcloths from Maggie Weldon's Dishcloth Challenge! www.bestfreecrochet.com
#135 - bottom left - Pineapple Cluster Crochet Dishcloth - intermediate skills from my perspective... a little complicated carrying the yarn around but a pretty cloth!
#136 Sunny Day Crochet Dishcloth - bottom right - LOVED the colors.... a bit ruffly but will be fun for washing up.
#136 - Denim Tracks Crochet Dishcloth - top left - pretty - easy
#138 - Shell Loop Crochet Dishcloth - lacy, stretchy, pretty
The next 4 cloths are in the photo below!
#139 Ocean Shells Crochet Dishcloth - bottom left - I enjoyed making this one - the pattern is simple and the multi-colored yarn makes it look more complicated than it really is. (The lazy crocheter LOVES when things are easy to make and look complicated!)
#140 Ruffles & Ridges Crochet Dishcloth on the bottom right - another simple one with a fancy edging... I like the fun yarn I found to do it in :-)
#141 - Sandcastles Crochet Dishcloth on the top left - I really enjoyed the color scheme on this one... it was interesting to do and dream of sandcastles on the beach. I would enjoy using this one in the winter :-)
#142 Easy Doubles Crochet Dishcloth - just as it says - easy doubles! Variegated yarn dresses it up :-)
Hope you enjoyed them!
