According to the DC#, the cloths I sent should be delivered on Monday!

Crocheting the set of cloths for this swap got me in the mood to crochet a few more. But, last weekend, I actually gave myself a blister from crocheting (after a bit of yard work), so I had to put the hooks aside for a bit. :(

Whoa, Grannydragon already received? When did that happen?

Her daughter sent me a PM yesterday. Her internet is down at the moment. So she did receive and sent.

I received from Granny Dragon! Came home from work and it was waiting for me on the steps. So happy!

Granny Dragon made me four cloths instead of the two we promised! She spoiled this little newbie!

Onto the pictures!



The blue one has a little bunny on it and the cream has little hearts on it. I have to say, I love the feel of knit! I need to wash these before I use them, though, as Granny Dragon's animals must have gotten into them. *sniff* But once they are washed, I am going to have a blast with these!



Also, as Granny Dragon's internet is down, I thought I would post the two cloths I made for her.

What pattern did you use for the first cloth you made grannydragon? I like it and would like to try it. I love the yarn that you used.

What a great start to our gallery. I love the pinwheel dishcloth. I would love the pattern.  I also really like the wavy crocheted dishcloth so cool.

The ones that I sent to froggmomma have been delivered! Yesterday, they were listed as "attempted" so I'm glad she's received them. I always worry about my swap packages getting lost in the system :)

I love both of those sets of dishcloths! The blue bunny one really makes me wish I could knit- I love cloths like those (and I can't help but shout out "Blue Bunny Dishcloth!" in the same manner as the ice cream vendor at our CanAm league baseball team... "Blue Bunny Ice Cream!" said in this odd manner that took me about 10 times hearing it to figure out what he was saying... but, I truly digress... I do love the blue bunny! ;D ).

The pattern is a modified pattern from Attic24's Neat Ripple Pattern (link: http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-ripple-pattern.html (http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-ripple-pattern.html)). I worked in the back stitches only and then when I made the boarder I straightened the ripples out.

I'll have to get back to you about the yarn though... it's hidden at the bottom of my stash in the back of my closet.

I got my awesome cloths from lolaandbean the other day sorry it took me so long to post. I did have to put them in the wash right away and now I am looking for the camera since DH doesn't remember where he put it. Thank you so much and I almost used the green and yellow blue yarn on you  ;)  I will post pics as soon as I can

My camera is MIA, but I received from Linda P just five minutes ago! I love the cloths and the scrubbie is really adorable. I'm sure I'll use it. ^_^

I just hope Linda posted pics of her cloths before she sent them so y'all can see them!

So far, the inside light and outside light have not been good (gray skies in abundance), so I'll attempt photos tomorrow when I am home at an earlier time (I hope!).

I recieved from my partner brynnegrl on Sat.! Been trying to upload pictures, but can only do it from my phone right now and its not cooperating with service!! Hopefully I'll get enough later when we run out to the store!

Thank you so much partner, they are fabulous and will hopefully be getting a lot of use when/if we move this week as the new place needs some MAJOR cleaning!! :)

I'll find out what pattern my Mum used for the pinwheel one if you like. Her computer is totally dead now :( sadly she can't get on line because of this at the moment

such pretty cloths so far!  i am inspired to work on some more...Christmas presents, maybe?

Post by: craftADDchick on June 14, 2011 06:28:12 PM
I finally managed to take pictures. The lighting isn't the best, but it shows the colors pretty well.

These are the ones that I received from froggmomma! I love them all- the smaller ones fit my hand nicely (not too big, not too small, but just right), and the lovely yellow one will be the perfect summer hand towel in the kitchen. With all of the grey skies we've been having, I need a little sunshine brightness in the kitchen! I'm also impressed with the nice and neat border on the red one (and the yellow one, too), because I can never get my dishcloth borders to look nice...



And, I may have photographed the back of the yellow one. It has fpdc on one side, which gives it a spike-stitch look on the back side. I like both sides!

And, I know that froggmomma is in the process of moving, and she received a bit ago, so I'm going to post a picture of what I sent to her.



The white w/stripes is a small version of Lion Brand's Dorothea Dishtowel, the striped one is called Loop to Loop and the third one is called Lacy Honeycomb. All of them were made with Lion Brand Cotton (white) and Sugar N' Cream Self-Striping (but I can't find the label to tell you the color). I was really happy to see how well it made the stripes on the Loop to Loop cloth!

Got my way cool clothes from DontdresslikeApril today! Totally spoiled me!

These are my pretty wash cloths in awesome bright happy colors! Then she sent me some real awesome napkins/not papertowels. These are really neat and I have never thought of making them. Love the prints she picked as well!

Thanks April for a great package!

Thenutmeg2000, I love the wash cloths you received, especially the square one (I'd love to know where you got the pattern, DontdresslikeApril!). And, sweet set of napkins, too!

Beautiful cloths and I adore those napkins, too!

Here is my beautiful package from IdlersDesign.  The cloths are so nice...they are made from an antibacterial cotton, how cool is that?!  :D

I told her that I was joining this (at least partly) for my mom because she loves knit and crocheted dishcloths and i don't make them for her nearly as much as i should.  :-[  The only problem is that i am going to have a hard time sharing these!

Then she sent a couple awesome extras...a cloth diaper (i have never tried anything fancier than a plain cloth diaper and pins) and a childrens book...my partner is from the Netherlands as are a couple people close to us so this will be wonderful for the kids to share with them (and entertaining to listen to me reading in a language i don't know)!

Thank you so much for such a great package!

Here is Rosie helping open the package.  Who needs scissors?   ::)

I received from smittenheart today. 
They are very lovely and she included some pine soap and a small pot of face scrub.  My camera died before I could take pictures of those.  Once it is charged I will update this post with those pictures.  Thank you smittenheart.

Beetastic, I love the texture on that top cloth! Are all of them knit? And, SnB, what a patriotic trio of cloths! I like the flag-styled one a lot!

Thenutmeg2000, I love the wash cloths you received, especially the square one (I'd love to know where you got the pattern, DontdresslikeApril!). And, sweet set of napkins, too!

patterns live in my head and mutate- so here is how i did the square one:
any granny square. working back and forth on the 2 sides, single crochet, in the corner sc. ch2. sc. just check that you are working the same amount on each side so you get an even square. then a picot edging around the whole thing. make sense?  ???

Sorry for the delay in posting photos!  Life has been super busy this week.  I have came home from work and just collapsed!
First the wonderful scrubbies that LovieDovieAnn sent to me.  I confess, I did not know what a scrubbie was...  ::)  I just love them all!  
First a group shot...

A close up of the cherry..

Square.. a version of a granny square?

Now how cool is this?  I love the buttons.  A towell hanger!  

A neat little watermelon scrubbie!


LovieDovieAnn asked me to post the photos of the cloths I sent her.  I did not happen to take one of the acrylic scrubber.. (Or my version of a scrubber!)

And a closer look..


What a fun little swap this was!  I loved it!

Thanks for posting pics for me, Linda! I love the cloths I received. They've already been tested out numerous times and even withstood having a baby maul them. haha

Also, that granny square thingy was a pattern I found on crochetpatterncentral.com for a dishcloth. Not sure how practical it is now that I'm seeing what others made, but it can at least be pretty on a hook or something. >.<

Perfect sense! And easy, too! :) I like that I could make some coordinating ones but switch out the square in the corner. That gives me endless possibilities ;)

And, I'm in love with so many of the cloths that have been posted! So many fun-looking patterns that I'd be interested to try. My blister has healed and I'm back to crocheting. And, summer vacation starts in a week, so nice light crochet dishcloths are the perfect summer project!

I received a wonderful package from Norahkate this morning:

A beautiful 'wall' cloth (wish I could knit!) and an apple scrubbie:

and she sent along some crochet hooks and yarn (we agreed on sending extras)

(OMG such big skeins of thick cotton yarn are so hard to find here!)

An apple (or is it a tomato?  ;)) scrubbie that has lots of structure:


A bath puff, that was claimed immediately by my son:


And a big, soft and thick dish cloth that is already in use as potholder (the cat agrees):


Thanks Norahkate for all the beautiful things!


Title: Re: Dishalicious Dishcloth/Washcloth Swap Rd 11 Gallery
Post by: norahkate on June 21, 2011 05:00:54 PM
you are welcome!  i pulled the apple and apple slice from your wists...the star is cotton too (lion brand baby's first...so soft and smooshy! :-*) and actually planned on being for your son (based off the star blanket in your wists as well) but it would make a nice potholder and if he already claimed the puff i would say you are all set!   :D

i have both of those variegated yarns but tend not to be a fan of them...they look great in that basketweave pattern, though.  Now i know what to do with them!

ETA-i didn't mean that in a bad way, i bought them because i loved them.  just that when i tried using them i didn't like how they turned out and they are beautiful this way.   :)
