diSh clOth feVeR!!




Who knew dish cloths were so much fun. Little bits of patterns and textures. I can't seem to stop!! It's a fun way to try out different knitting stitches. This is what i have so far... I can make a few more.. then the yarn runs out.. I'll have to run to the store for more cotton yarn..
Things are moving right along.... I finished this shrug a few days ago.. I've been trying to get a good picture of it.. doesn't seem to be possible.. so here it is.. a kind of dark wierd picture..This is a pattern by Levonne Best
It looks very nice on..(^_^)

bAck tO BaSics















Do u prefer them knit or crochet?...I can't decide.. so i make them both..This is the beginning of my stack of dish cloths. I'm starting out with really basic patterns and plan to build up to more intricate patterns.I make a pile about once a year...whats good about them is u can throw them in the washer and they look pretty in the kitchen. the star shaped one was supposed to have only 6 points not 7. I started over twice and just gave into 7 points. There are lots of free dish cloth patterns online..if u like the knitted version... look here
For the crochet version... go here
Well looks like this will keep me busy for the evening.. (^_^)
