.Crocheted Dishcloths.

I've been cleaning out my craft supplies and came across a few balls of yarn I bought two years ago to crochet some dishcloths with.  It wasn't doing any good tucked away in a box, so I got out my hook and started making squares.
 
They are fun (and addictive!) to make.  Good to pop in the present box for a quick gift.  I used Lily Sugar 'n Cream cotton yarn from here (remember you need to use 100% cotton yarn for dishcloths to be absorbent).  The pattern was a simple one from Design Sponge.
They helped keep me entertained for a few weeks of  Masterchef watching!  I'm no pro-hooker, but this book helps me out a lot when it comes to my crochet endeavors :)  Now to decide how many to keep for myself and which ones to put in the present box?!

Toni. i LOOOVE those dishcloths.
Becky gave me two for Mother's Day and I think they are the greatest thing ever.
I want to find someone to teach me to crochet, so i can make some more for myself. I have two going at the same time. I put them through the dishwasher with my dishes. I love your pretty colours. Love Auntie Lorraine.

I feel a need for a RS activity to teach us all how to crochet dish cloths!

As a non-hooker I have been given two and I think they make a great present Toni - which to keep and which to give though!??

So I have been thinking about crocheting a cowl and a blankie for a while. You've inspired me to actually get the hooks out. Now all I need is to do it! Thanks Toni - love the colours!
