Yep, this is what I am up to....crocheting 100% cotton washcloths or dishrags, which ever you prefer. 

I let daughter #2 pick the color of yarn, which I think is so much fun because it is variegated!

Obviously, this is not perfect and it is my first try, but I am loving the imperfections : )

I think I am getting better at this.....??? (to the right). I wanted to make something that would be useful and practical for gifts.
Have a great day!


  1. great gift idea. the variegated thread always helps me not get bored. you never know what shade of color will pop up next.

  2. I love hand made washcloths to give and receive. They hold up so well. You are doing a great job and the yarn is yummy!

  3. Hi Deanna,

    I agree about the variegated thread keeping my interest.
    It is like candy to me :)

  4. Jeannie,

    I want my gifts to be useful and I thought this would be a fun way for me to practice my crochet.

    Thank you for your words of encouragement!

  5. oh gosh I SO want to learn to crochet, these are brilliant, and loving the variagated yarn <3

  6. Hi Hoola Tallulah,

    There is something so meditative and relaxing about crochet.
    I just found a you tube video and followed that! I love free "how to" videos!
    Variegated thread is my favorite.

  7. Marie, this is a great idea for a gift -- I love the colors, is that sugar & cream yarn?

  8. Hi Woman with wings,

    I really wanted to give something useful and I saw a picture of dish rags and I thought I could easily make those...mine are not as pretty as the ones in the picture, but that is ok lol! :)
    Yes, that is the sugar and cream yarn.

  9. A wonderful choice! I really like useful gifts too.

  10. Hi Deb,

    I am really in to practical and useful right now...but, i still enjoy fun
    too ; )
    (The little gifts I am working on now are just for fun and they make me smile)

  11. imperfections make them perfectly wonderful!

  12. Hi BJ,

    I agree. Jude at Sprit Cloth has helped me to see the beauty in ragged edges and imperfect edges. Love it!
