I love that cloth, tehandehness! When I first looked at it, I didn't realize that each row wasn't "solid" all the way across. I really like the self-striping yarn for washcloths (I think I used it for one a few cloths back). I'd love to find a pattern that matches the stripe colors perfectly!

The yarn I used for the twists cloth came on a cone. The label inside says it's Peppercorn Ombre, and I think it was Peaches N'Cream yarn (I'm pretty sure I bought it at Wal-mart a while ago).

And, I just checked through the list of patterns I have completed so far, and Vanilla Grit isn't on it! I'm going to print out the pattern with the next group of patterns. I can't believe I skipped that one!

Ugh, I love how soft and squishy these things get after their first wash and dry. A few new ones! I am going to try to remember what these are.

My version of the spa cloth in a twists yarn.



Itty bitty basic cloth the size of a kitchen sponge.



And...I've completely forgotten what this is. The pattern just says "dishcloth".



So I am now up to...8? I think.

I like the spa cloth! Is that a pattern from the first post? And, I like the patternt hat the yarn made on the "dishcloth" one- so cool looking! Also, what a good idea to make a sponge-sized cloth. I should make a few of those and use them for wiping down the counters. Nice that I can just toss them into the wash!

I have a dishcloth all made, but I need to weave in the tails before I take a photo. That'll bring me to 38! But, tehandeness, I'm guessing that you'll get to 50 before I do Smiley

Two more cloths from me.  I whipped them up last week.  I was applying for a position of crochet instructor and needed samples for the interview.  BTW, I got the job!  Cool

Not the best pictures, I'm posting from my husband's laptop.  I used Sugar 'n Cream Green Twist.  Two cloths out of one ball, not bad  Smiley




Patterns are not from our official list; I picked up a book of dishcloth patterns from Leisure Arts called "The Big Book of Dishcloths"

Congrats on the job, gizmonic! And, nice job on the dishcloths! I have that book somewhere, and on my "to do" list of dishcloths, I have at least one planned (maybe #78? Or was it #48... or #43?).

The other night, in the midst of stressful house and Thanksgiving preparations (I feel like a new person now that the major stress from the past week is over), I realized that I didn't have a kitchen sponge to clean up while cooking. So, stealing the idea from tehandehness, I made a sponge-sized cloth. It's 2 layers thick- one side has bobbles on it, and the other is all sc, and then I used sc to stitch them together. If it's not too disgusting looking, I'll take a picture...

Thanks CraftADDChick!  Once my paperwork goes through I should be teaching about two classes a month starting in January.  Yeah, I've lost track of how many cloths I've done too!   Smiley

Hey CALsters, are you familiar with the foundation single crochet?  It's a nice, clean way to start your first row instead of the traditional chain. 

It has had me baffled for months now.  Huh Undecided Then all of a sudden it clicked!  Shocked  Yay!!!

Not sure if anyone's using it but it's the only way I'm casting/binding on now. 

Wanted to share the crafty love w/ya!  Kiss

fantasticmio has a tutorial on her blog that shows how to do the foundation single crochet, I think. I haven't tried it yet, but if it's better than crocheting into the chain, I'm going to have to give a look (maybe I'll try it for the first row of my next Special Olympics scarf!).

IMO, it really is better than crocheting into the chain.  It's seems to be like a chain + SC all in one step.  If you're like me, once you grasp the concept you'll wonder how you crocheted without it!  Cheesy

Excellent! But now, instead of grading projects, I want to try it... Maybe later tonight!
