Okay it is Friday and I am so happy. 2 whole day that I don't have to answer the phone, smile or return any phone call thank you Lord!!!!! I hope to get in a lot of crochet time I need to get my dishcloths done. I have to spend so time on my Crochet Lace Afghan I just have too do this because I love the pattern it is easy and looks great. This dishcloth and potholder project might be to much for me to many dishcloths and potholders and not enough time for the projects I want to do, since my mother paid for the yarn and wanted me to do this I will have to make the dishcloths and potholders. I have to tell my mother that I will not do this again, I like making things but I just don't like feeling like I have to do something. Learning to crochet was suppose to be something I did because I wanted too. Oh well what can I do now I should have just said no. I guess when she noticed that I was in a group that did exchanges that I would not mine the work but I really do. I am posting a picture of a dishcloth that I am almost finished working on. Happy Crocheting and Knitting.

Well I started another dishcloth last night and I did not drink that extra glass of wine so all went well with the start of this dishcloth so I have 5 dishcloths complete and # 7 started and #6 almost complete #6 needs the edging done. I might not put the edging on the dishcloth I think it looks pretty good without the edging but when you look at the picture of the dishcloth the edging really does set off the look of the dishcloth. The dishcloth I am working on now is from The Big Book of Dishcloths # 33 I will need to read the pattern very carefully while working this pattern. I will post a picture of the dishcloth when it's finished. I am posting tonight a picture of #6 so you can see what it looks like without the edging. I am glad I have at least a month to finish this Christmas project because things are moving slow but I will continue to press on and get all of my projects done on time. Happy crocheting and knitting

Speaking from recent experience I can tell you that wine an crochet don't mix. I was working on a dishcloth last night and found that I could not keep up with my stitches, I had to rip out several rows so not much progress on the dishcloth. So today at my lunch break I fixed my mess from last night and now the dishcloth is looking good. So take it from me try to keep your wine drinking down while you are crocheting. Dishcloth#15 is a ripple and I am using a very pretty blue variegated cotton yarn. Hobby Lobby has a 40% off coupon this week and so today I brought The Big Book of Dishcloths regular price $7.99 so I used the coupon on the book it has 99 dishcloths I think I have enough patterns if the don't come out with some new designs to last for a long time. If and this is a big if I might make a dishcloth for the ladies in my department. This book has enough choices that I can do a diffrent one for each person.

Monday night and I need to work on dishcloths. I worked a FP,BP dc and now I need to do the edging. I read the pattern and asked a woman at work an still not sure I understand what they want me to do but tomorrow I plan to make a trip to Hobby Lobby and buy some white cotton yarn to do the edging I think that will set the dishcloth off and make it look really good. I will wait until this weekend to finish the dishcloth so that I can spend a little more time with the dishcloth pattern an figure out what the are taking about. I might have to ask some one at Crochetville or atmyhouse to see if they can help me. This free loop thing I really don't understand. I will start tonight on dishcloth #7 from the book not the number of dishcloths I have done. So I really need to start crocheting. Happy crocheting and knitting.

I made one dishcloth today that I think looks more like a towel than a dishcloth. It is large and I don't think I will give it to anyone. I am starting another dishcloth tonight a FPdc and BPdc I hope it looks better than the one I made this afternoon. We shall see what happens. Well my idea to buy my next projects yarn with the 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby has been postponed, because the yarn I need for the project is on sale this week and you can't use the coupon of sale items only regular priced items. The sales price is not as cheap as the coupon price. Its okay I don't have time to do the project until after Christmas anyway. I am trying not to think about the fact that tomorrow is Monday and another long hard work week is coming. Happy crocheting and knitting.
