Wow! This is amazing! I'd be daunted by cutting out the circles, never mind sewing them all on by hand. Impressive!

I received my tin today!! After my original partner flaked, Dreambelle stepped up and offered to be my angel. She chose the most difficult of my themes (molecules) and came up with such a clever idea- I love it!

Inside the tin there are a bunch of atoms and bonds that have magnets on the back so I can assemble my molecules. Due to the long journey (for some reason, the tin went from Indiana, to Arizona, then spent 2 days in New Hampshire before finally making it to Massachusetts!), some of the magnets came off, but I can glue them back on. And, I have some Perler beads around here somewhere, so I can add more pieces to the set later! I may also glue some magnets to the back so I can hang the whole kit on the fridge- I'm off to print out molecular diagrams to copy right now!!

Thanks Dreambelle for being my angel and coming up with such a clever idea. You rock!

And, thanks, kishcrafts for setting me up with such a great angel! You rock, too!

kjlutz, that's a fabulous package from Nirauan. Totally stinks that you got flaked on twice, but it's awesome that Nirauan stepped up and angeled for you! Super-fantastic organizer, super-fantastic package! i love the t-shirt!

Thanks for the added info! I can't believe you are a relative newbie to crochet- your stuff is so nice looking! I've been re-learning over the past year or so and my stuff still has "issues."

I had some time to kill after work one day (I had a meeting later that evening and it isn't worth driving 30 minutes home...only to drive back again) so I stopped at the craft store and picked up some cotton. I had found an I hook in my desk (taught a bunch of students to crochet last year) so it has become my official dishcloth hook. I keep a ball of yarn, the newest pattern, some handy paper clip stitch markers and the hook in a Ziploc bag in the car. I got out of work an hour and a half earlier than I planned today, so I crocheted in the car until my tutoree showed up. I still can't crochet while watching TV (well, maybe a granny square), so it works out well to have it in the car...

I think I grabbed every single pattern that was posted and saved them. This includes the original list and links that everyone put up. I think I even have "The Big Book of Dishcloths" around here somewhere. So, I should be able to find 50 patterns! I'm trying to pick the easy ones for now. I do learn something from each one I make, so I'll eventually work my way up to more difficult ones. Only 43 more to go Wink

Zelda, you continue to amaze me! I love how different they look depending on the colors you used (fantastic, by the way). As much as I want to make 50 different ones, I'll probably end up repeating a couple of patterns. Like the Face Cloth and the Bark Sedge and the Granny Wink

Oh, and on the striped Face Cloths, did you carry the yarn across? And how many chains did you start with to make it bigger? Thanks!
7778  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 50+ Wash Cloths-along on: March 20, 2008 04:34:37 PM
Numbers 6 & 7!

This is the Bark Sedge in Sn'C Summer Sky. I just love it! It is a bit wonky, though. I crochet on the tight side, and one turning chain at the end of each row just wasn't enough. So, I added a second one, and it worked out better...

This is the Face Cloth, and I can't believe how easy it was! It only took me about an hour to make it. I'll be making many more of these once I'm done with my 50. It's a bit small, so I may make future ones bigger. I used Sn'C Shades of Green and it started out with a cool pattern (sadly, no DNA), but shortly after I noticed the pattern, it shifted and the effect was lost- I may have skipped a stitch or two, or loosened/tightened my tension. Wouldn't surprise me...

ETA: After I posted, I realized that I could see DNA in the Face Cloth- the angle of the photo makes it look more apparent...gotta love science Wink

inkberry, I really like the Pink Shells cloth! I think I'm adding it to my list of the ones I'll be doing. I really want to try to make 50 different ones...

Of course, thanks to CraftADDchick, I now see partial strands of DNA every time I crochet something!! Cheesy

Ha! And I do see it in the one you just posted Wink

I actually have 2 more practically done- I just need to weave in the ends. I'm going to go and do that now and then I can post pics.

I'm so glad that the tutorial worked for you! And, I know what you mean about the tabs- the tabs on the bag I used as a model were a bit small, so I enlarged them...only I enlarged them too much Wink Next time I make one I'll make them smaller.

And, I think fabric handles should work just fine, especially since you top-stitched them!

Folding the top edges down first is probably a good idea- I realized after I had it the pieces stitched together that I'd have to hem them. Would have been easier if I had done it first!

Thanks for sharing your changes, and if you ever do get a picture, I'd love to see it!
