Remember about less than 12 hours ago I said “Hey world, I have all this yarn for dishcloths, whatcha want?” Well, what I should’ve said was “Hey world, apparently I have a ball of lilac laying around” And as such we have reached our first snafu of the project.

Therefore, the rules have changed…slightly. I will be purchasing colors for the dishcloths of the three that have requested dishcloths: Maitland, Michelle, and Josh. It’s not really a biggie since this yarn costs about $1.25 per ball, but it defeats the purpose of the project. Nevertheless a promise is a promise. And I should warn that these dishcloths come out more like facecloths so don’t be disappointed by the tiny squares! I hope you’ll love them.

This shows me just how much I need to be prepared to take on such a project. I can almost guarantee you I will find this yarn floating around somewhere later on.

Look for a post tomorrow about more freebies. Legitimately. I swear.




Do you want a dishcloth?

While doing inventory last night I realized that I have an enormous amount of Sugars and Cream yarn which is used, primarily, for dishcloths. ( had it for .20 cents one day). I’ve made my fair share of dishcloths in my day and am sick to death of them, but this isn’t about me; it’s about my huge load of Sugar’s and Cream. And I refuse to fall victim to tiny balls of yarn.

There are a pluthera of free dishcloth patterns on ravelry. Some feature simple designs while others are cartoon characters, symbols, animals or scenery.

If you have a ravelry account or found a free pattern online that you like, post it here and give me your color choices. If you can’t find a pattern, give me an idea of what you might like to receive and I will do my best. The first five people that do this will get a dishcloth from yours truly over the course of this project. (Let’s face it five weeks of dishcloths would torture all of us).

The first dishcloth will be made during the second week of this project.
