Let the Sun Shine!

Greetings! Hope you’ve been having a good week, I sure have!

Today I wanted to share with you the dishcloth I received from my swapner. It’s a Michigan Sunflower. Isn’t it lovely? I love the texture of it! Thanks so much to Denise, aka MichiganIrish for all her efforts of my dishcloth, it’s been such a pleasure swapping with her!

Come back tomorrow and check out my FO, XO!

FO Friday, Number 32

Hey all, did you enjoy my goodies from yesterday? I hope so, I sure did!

As promised here is my FO for this week. I joined the KISS Dishcloth Swap on Crochetville last month, and I was partnered with Denise from Michigan. She said she wanted a bright dishcloth, so I went looking for the brightest yarn I could find. I have also had a particular dishcloth pattern in my Ravelry queue for a while, so I decided to give it a whirl. Do you like?

The pattern in Scrap Ripple Cloth from Anastacia Zittel. I love the simple but textured look of it. It took a bit of figuring out exactly where to “stitch in back loop only” to get the texture but once I did it was easy going. I used leftover green and white Peaches and Cream cotton, and bought the blue and pink Bernat Handicrafter cotton for the other brightness. I used a G hook. I really like it! So happy! Denise has received her dishcloth and likes it! *Phew! I am now patiently waiting for her creation.

There is my FO for this week. I can’t wait to show you what I have cookin’ for next month’s Square Swap :). As always, check out the other great FOs at Tami’s Amis, XO.

Sunshine and Smiles

Hey all,

Excuse my absence, I have been a busy, busy bee since Wednesday. Our city held the annual 10k run on Sunday and I worked with my Bestie in the New Balance/Alliance Athletics booth, which was a blast (tiring too!)!! That being said I had not time to crochet, much less anything to post. I do have something great to show you today:

Isn’t it freaking adorable?! It’s MY KISS Dishcloth from the C’Ville Swap. It was sent from the wonderful Rosebud75 in Goodland, Kansas. The colours match so well with my yellow kitchen, although I doubt I will actually use it, it’s too darn cute.

Equation Solved

Thanks for all the great guesses everyone!

The question was “how does a ball of yarn and some notions equal a kiss?”

Here’s the solution 🙂

It’s a dishcloth for my K(eep) I(t) S(imple) S(weetie) Dishcloth Swap on C’Ville.

The yarn is Bernat Cotton in pretty blues and greens and I used a G hook. The pattern is Mina’s Delight from Donna Melton. My swapner is from Kansas and this is en route to her as we speak. I really hope she likes it!

I have never used homemade dishcloths so it will be interesting to see if I use mine, or simply hang it for decoration. What do you guys think? Are crocheted dishcloths as good as people make them out to be?
