52 Weeks of Dishcloths

Sunday, April 7, 2013

A few days ago I came across a tweet I saw on Twitter from Jill Swensen who's blog is see the link Being Spiffy and is hosting 52 Weeks of Dishcloths.  When I saw this I became interested and thought that she had a great idea.  My mom used to use dishcloths all the time to wash her dishes and it made me think that using a dishcloth is a great idea.  With a dishcloth you can just throw it into the washing machine and clean it.  Well Saturday morning I went to Michaels and bought the yarn and came home and made one in about 2 hours.  I used the whole skein but for the next I will use half the yarn and make 2 dishcloths.  For the details pop on over to www.beingspiffy.com and maybe you might be interested in crocheting one for your kitchen.  How about being green?

For this pattern I used the pattern from Week 1 - Bubblegirl - Dishcloth pattern.  I used Sugan 'n Cream yarn in the color: Mod Ombre (you can use any color you like) and it costs $1.99, you can't beat that price!  So lets get started and have some fun.  They would make great gifts also.  Here are some pictures of my dishcloth.

This link to make this dishcloth can be found HERE.

  6. I love the dishcloth...What coincidence that my blog this month is about my grandmother's fabulous dishcloths. You certainly can't beat the durability of these things. Stay tuned. I love the color of yours.
