My friend Sheryle at work is always way way impressed with anything I crochet (not that it's amazing, she just doesn't crochet and thinks it's neat). Anyhow I decided to make her a dishcloth 'cause it's nice when someone actually appreciates when you make something! I basically used the pattern for the aran isles muffler from Donna Kooler's Encylclopedia of Crochet. I just did 2 repeats and then bordered it in two rows of single crochet. Sheryle is so cute, she said she can't wash dishes with it, she's going to frame it and hang it on her wall lol! I told her to just use it, and since it's white cotton she could bleach it but she refused!

I'm also making this as an actual scarf for my mom in red, it is about a foot and a half long but I haven't worked on it in a while!

Dish cloth, it's too pretty not to use. Tell her to go for it and if it falls apart (it won't Tongue) you'll make her a new one. Smiley

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

Beautiful work!  That pattern looks so pretty.. but I bet the little balls (or clusters?) would have super scrubby power.

I can't blame her for not wanting to use it as a dishcloth, it's gorgeous!  I'd probably mat it on a contrasting color (blue maybe?) and frame it. Wink

I love this.  People don't seem to use anything you give them.  I haven't figured that out yet.  My husband has 2 daughters.  When we met and got engaged the other found out she was pg.  I made her a baby blanket.  For months after the birth I thought she was not using it.  Then I went to her home and saw that my granddaughter was being wrapped up it in when she slept in her crib.  I said nothing till my husband and I left and I told how I had felt prior to seeing what I had seen.  He questioned her and she said she didn't want to leave it somewhere by accident.  Her own mother wasn't there for her like I was and that the only Nanny she has was me.  I felt very honored.   Since then I have showered her with tons of hand made items.  Evertime I see her it is in something I made.  I guess I am a proud Nanny.

Hmm I think they were bobbles...but there are so many similar stitches I can't remember for sure! I can look at the pattern later and let you know.
