made for you: dishcloths

With the school holidays here, and some beautiful winter days, it is easy to get the necessary work done in the morning knowing we don't have any pressures and can relax and enjoy family time. Thankfully the flu bug was limited to one child, and we can carry on with enjoying the second week together.

The first week I kept myself busy trying my hand at 100% cotton dishcloths.

the dishcloth above was from this blog.

We even fitted on a flying visit to see a new brand nephew and catchup with my aging grandparents in Albany. This requires sitting in the car for a total of 8hrs, so another two dishcloths were also completed.
 The white and cream ones were based on two squares from the krista throw. A good way to practice different techniques.
 I used double strand of 4ply crochet cotton.
All wrapped as a gift.

This second week we have a few things organised with a little-miss crochet group evening (post will follow after the event!), but mainly just staying home, and enjoying crafts, warm milos, the activity desk, lego and our new family companion, oh and some housework thrown in too...

  1. Winter school holidays aren't that bad are they :-) Good excuse to spend some time at home keeping warm and doing all of those fun indoors activities!
