Look at what I'm thinking of doing next!


I haven't done much crochet lately but on a trip to Spotlight today I spotted this book and couldn't resist buying it,of course the 30% 0ff had nothing to do with it mind you lol.
I've been tossing around ideas on how to save myself some money as well as the environment at the same time and this was one of the directions I've been looking in except most of the patterns I've seen have been for just knitted dish cloths and a knitter I'm not (except for the basics).I've been looking at other blogs and how they're trying to reduce waste and save money and thought I might start my new adventure with these crocheted dish cloths,what do you think??
Maybe I could swap with someone who wants a couple of my crocheted ones for a couple of their knitted ones,any takers? Of course I'll have to practice first as I've only had a chance to flick through the book today.

have fun creating, You could sew together some dishcloths for a knee rug in the winter, i think that would be pretty cool,

Those dishcloths are great. DIL knitted me some last year and they just last and last. I have put my order in for a couple more when she has time!!!

I am looking forward to seeing some pics of your new found environmentally friendly craft. Hmmm, maybe I could find a pattern to knit some, not being a great crocheter. Is that a word?LOL

I think you will do just fine. I do a lot of crochet and just a little knitting. But dishcloths are one of the neatest things to make because they are so small and you don't get tired of them because you don't have to work so long. I have all the faith in the world you will do just fine. but if you get stuck just come by my place and we'll chat about it. Take care and keep on hookin'

Sounds like you're in for some fun! I love to crochet and love crochet. Dishcloths are fairly easy to do and you can use many colors. Maybe some great housewarming gifts?

Good Luck with the crocheting! I have never done it before, so you will have to keep us updated.
