Joining in with Amy from Love Made my Home for five on friday, this week its Five crochet dishcloths! I know, I know, I’ve been banging on about my dishcloths for a while, but they are so much fun to make! Who’d have thought dishcloths and fun could be in the same sentence! I have been gaining confidence in the old tapestry crochet malarky and tried out a few new designs.
These three I finally completed as a set for my mother in law’s birthday present, along with a little crochet heart sachet and some gorgeous little soaps and handcreams from L’Occitane.
I was trying to get a good photo of them on a beautiful sunny day over the paddock gate, but the photo looks a bit like I’m trying too hard to get a rustic effect and not succeeding. Hope you like the sunshine and green grass anyway.
I worked out a little zig zag pattern and finished this one last weekend. I think I used too many colours though. The white edging helps tone it down a bit.
I decided to make this zig zag one with fatter rows and stuck to four less bright colours. Its coming along and I think it will be quite pretty with perhaps a pink border but undecided at the moment.
Out of all of them I think this spotty one is my favourite, despite its imperfections. Which one’s your fave?
Have a lovely weekend! Please go visit the other bloggers joining in this week.
