Continuing on with my current obsession, I’ve got two more dish clothes/toy blankets to add to my collection. The pattern can be found here: Foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains: Tulip Stitch Cloth The pattern was super easy and crocheted up really quickly. I was done in about an hour and a half. I am usually a bit of a loose crocheter, so pulling tight was hard to remember, but I am well pleased with the results. This one was nabbed for a toy blanket within minutes of completion… who know small stuffed animals needed so many blankets – so I can’t really comment on how well it scrubs dirty dishes… yet!
THIS is my favourite pattern ever. The pattern was super easy – just an sc and a dc in every alternate stitch. I love how the pattern worked out, making it look rippled and I can vouch for how well it works with cleaning dishes. I am planning on making many many more of these and even figuring it out to make into making drying towels for the dishes after they have been washed. Awesome, awesome pattern can be found here: Bubblegirl Dishcloth Pattern
I have a new obsession… mostly because spend so much time hanging out in my car waiting for bus drop offs or to pick up someone from school. I read… but I like projects that I can get done in the hour (or so) wait (Thank you Florida summer rain storms!)
With that in mind, and trying to save money, I’ve started crochetting dishclothes. I can’t say that I am sold on them yet, but it’s better than going and spending money on something that gets so gross and nasty like the sponges we’ve previously used. This particular time, I chose this pattern: Waffle Crochet Dishcloth and it was super super easy. What amuses me however, is my complete inability to make it square. But, I don’t mind… after all it’s going to be stuck in a sink full of dirty dishes and I don’t think that they will care!
