Post of the Clean Kind

Not that the post would be dirty or anything but I just wanted to show you a wash cloth I finished last night. I absolutely love it. And I think I am going to be doing many more only in a lot of different stitch patterns and colors. It looks like a lot of people on my Christmas list may be getting a wash cloth. Do you think they'll be offended?

Gee I hope not. I'm going to see if I can learn to do some letters in Irish Crochet and somehow sew the first initial of the person receiving it so that it's personalized. That will definitely be a challenge for me.

Anyways, I have The Harmony Guides Basic Crochet Stitches - 250 Stitches to Crochet and will use quite a few of the stitches in there and create some awesome wash cloths in some awesome colors for gifts.

I actually thought this stitch combination was in this book but I looked through it twice and couldn't find it. It's really simple. The starting chain was an even number (42).  When I turned for the next round I did a ch 1, sk 1, sc in next st, then hdc in the same stitch, *sk 1, sc then hdc in same stitch* - in each row. 

I love how it turned out. And it was only two nights to finish it. Quick, easy, instant crochetification. What more could a girl ask for?? :o)

Hope your Tuesday is wonderful where ever your journeys take you.


  1. Will be back later on to read . . in the middle of fixing supper . . . just wanted to say that I think the problem with the site might be that I have to many widget that make the site load to slow.

    I've been meaning to change that, but need to be on the PC downstairs where I can have multiple screens open so I can keep track of what I'm doing :0}

  2. That's a neat stitch. Thanks for sharing. I'll have to try it sometime.

    Check your email. I'm sending you something in a minute! :)

  3. I think people would LOVE a crocheteed washcloth, oonce they have used them. I know that I like my washclothes that are made with #3 crochet thread . . . and dishclothes made from this thread. They feel good on the face yet they really clean the dishes.

    Go figure 0}


I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
