February "Dishcloth of the Month"

I can't let February go by without a "dishcloth of the month" now can I?

I could, but what's the fun in that?

This one stitched up very nicely, and I used scrap yarn I had in my stash.  The original pattern shows a photo of using red/white variegated yarn.  I used pink, then edged in white.  So cute!

I've got a busy weekend, but I hope to get it all done today, and rest up tomorrow.

I love the pink. You do great hand work. I bet these would sell at farmers market.

That is so cute. I have one in a square a friend made me and I love it. She needs to make me that heart or I need to learn to make them.

Kristina said...

Kim, I love the way the pink turned out too. It was some leftover larger skeins of cotton yarn I had. I hope I can find more in stores now.

Kristina said...

Sunny Simple Life, this one is crocheted, but I do crochet the square ones too. I think this is my first heart dishcloth to make, now that I think about it. If I can find the yarn to make more, I'll put them up for sale too.

Your dish cloths (or pot holders) are too pretty to use for washing dishes or when cooking! Such talented fingers you have. 'Course, the old gray matter comes into play there, too!

Kristina said...

Thanks Mama Pea, I am digging out my rag balls this weekend.

It's so pretty, I'd hate to use it as a dishcloth. I'd use it for a hot pot trivet though. Wouldn't that be pretty.
Prayers everyone has a safe happy week ahead.
God bless.

Where can I find the pattern?

Kristina said...

Susan, I will look through my patterns and see where I found this one. I'll be back to let you know.

Susan, the best I can tell, is I borrowed the book from our library, but I found it on Leisure Arts books site, A dishcloth a month $3.99.
