I received my dishcloths from craftADDchick today! They are so beautiful and I love them.  I especially love the colors.  I never would have thought to put those colors together, but they work well. Cheesy My favorite is the tulle scrubby.  The first one is a variegated zipper square.  The brown one is a chain stitch face cloth in the shape of a diamond and the striped one is based off of the Fibonacci series (I've never heard of this, but I'm going to look it up. I think it has something to do with math.) She says in her note that the scrubby (the round purple) was a prototype.  I LOVE IT! It is so awesome! I never would have thought to use tulle!
I use exclamation points a lot because I'm so excited!  Grin  Thank you SO much craftADDchick!!  You made this an awesome first swap for me!!!!

I'm glad they arrived so quickly! I'm really glad you like the colors, too. I picked up that variegated yarn and liked the color combo, so I went with it. I couldn't find a solid aqua, surprisingly, so I went with the purple instead.

The tulle scrubby was sort of an odd coincidence. A gal I work with mentioned that someone in her knitting group knitted with tulle to make kitchen scrubbing cloths and then when I was buying the yarn for the washcloths, the gal at the register mentioned it as well. I figured that it was a sign that I just had to try to crochet with tulle Smiley

And, the brown cloth isn't supposed to be in the shape of a diamond, but for some reason, it wouldn't stay straight, even though I was careful with my stitches.  I even did it all in one sitting so my tension should have been consistent. Huh Maybe it'll square up a bit more when it gets wet  Cheesy

Thanks for swapping with me Vdbonnett and thanks for organizing this swap Sejimara!

OH!!  Smiley Well, if you had been TRYING to make it into a diamond, it would have come out square (At least that's how things work for me).  When I was making yours, I tried a pattern and one side was straight but the other side kept coming out at an angle and kind of acting like it was going to be a circle, so I gave up on that one.  Grin

I received from Vdbonnett! And they are awesome! I definitely can't pick a favorite, that's for sure!

This first one has such a great stitch pattern; if I made a larger version, it'd make a great blanket.



The next one has a lovely nubby texture that doesn't show well in the photo, and because of the variegated yarn, it has a cool design in it, too! Grin



And finally, one that is almost too lovely to use! It looks like a flower!




Thanks, Victoria! And thanks again, Sejimara, for organizing!

PS Vdbonnett included the pattern links in her note, but I can't find it in my pile of mail. Once I dig it out tomorrow night, I'll post the info for anyone who is interested Wink

I'm lovin' the stuff already posted. My grandma had bought some crocheted scrubbies made from nylon netting and gave me one to figure out how to make. So I  bought a few yards of it, and tried. But I had problems with the edges of the netting sticking out. It made it look fuzzy. I was thinking about using my bias tape maker to fold the edges in, but i haven't attempted it yet.

I used tulle that I bought on a roll at JoAnn's and a big hook (it isn't labeled, and the Sharpie writing that I put on it has rubbed off... but it's fatter than a pencil and slightly bigger than a Crayola thin marker... I don't have a ruler handy). It seemed to naturally fold in on itself as I made it. The tulle  is a little less than 6" wide and came on a 25 yard roll. I used more than half, I think, to make the scrubbie.

I know I used a M hook. The scrubbie I have is a rectangle, well two rectangles with a sc edge. I think it was like 10 or maybe 11 sc x 12 or 13 rows.  Now I'm need to break out the stuff try again.

I did 2 circles with 2 rounds- 12 sc into a magic ring (R1) and then 2 sc into each sc (R2). I wove in the ends on the first one, and the starting tail on the second. I didn't fasten off on the second but joined the 2 circles with sc around.

If I had thought for a moment more before I cut the tulle to fasten off, I might have chained a few to make a loop to hang it with. I'll do that on the next one!

Thanks to Disco Queen Highness for these three dishcloths; at last I won't have to try and remember to periodically launder the lone singleton I usually have -- I can put one in the hamper and still be able to wash the dishes!

I received from norahkate earlier this week. She's a swap spoiler, so prepare to be amazed.
 
A beautiful square cloth.


A really pretty stripey rectangle, and a bath poof. She used the softest cotton yarn I have ever felt.


All of these came in the most beautiful lunch bag. I've loved the book The Little Prince since I've first read it.


And a close-up of the stich work.


I love everything so much. Thanks again norahkate.

and thank you for everything!  ...except the close up of my mad embroidery skills. Wink  there is no technique involved, just that when i started planning for this swap that bag popped into my head and despite my lack of ability i was determined to make it happen.  i was pretty pleased with the outcome, but only held at arm's length.

Finally, a week late (me, not her Wink), here is my awesome package from froggmomma.  i love green...i also love green bay packers football, so the football chapstick cozy is too perfect. 

she also sent some cute tags for me to put on things i crochet...i think they will inspire me to finish the prayer shawl i'm working on.  Smiley
