Phyl and Mindy, hope you don't mind but I copied your patterns onto the Pattern thread so we would have them all in one place....I started a section just for Dishcloths and Kitchen things.

OK with me Trisha.
Carolyn if the pattern calls for worsted weight yarn you can use the cotton yarn no problem it's the same size.

How fun! I just learned how to crochet over Thanksgiving, and I really like it. So far I've made 5 scarves and 1 1/2 hats (ran out of yarn... oops!) I just started an afghan, but I have some of that Sugar & Cream thread left from 2 of the scarves... I may take a dishcloth hiatus for a while - those look like fun! Do you actually use them to wash dishes??

Welcome Marylyn yep I use mine DH won't use any store bought ones for some reason. Found that out when I needed to make new ones and put out the store bought ones my sister gave me as a gift. He asked where the dishcloth was and stuck his nose up when I pointed to the store bought one. One of my BIL's asked me to make him new ones for his birthday this year. They are done just haven't took a picture of them yet.
Hmmm read a tip somewhere if you run out of yarn on a hat consider using a complementary color to finish it.

I still have the half finished hat... I need to take it to Hobby Lobby and find some yarn that will go with it, since they haven't stocked the same kind again. :-)

I have about 3 Big plastic bins of yarn anywhere from five to 1/2 skeins of various colors....left overs from projects anywhere from yesterday to the late 1980's colors....guess I should take it all and make multi-color afghans and scarves and hats until it is all gone...

LOL Trisha once upon a time I would make stuff all year long then about Nov I would gather up all the leftover yarn and make scrap afghans to give to someone going through a rough time. Then my sister and a neighbor gave me lots and lots of yarn the same year and I'm still trying to get it used up. I'm getting there but it's slow going.

I'm pretty good at resisting more yarn unless I need it to finish a project already started or for one I'm designing for someone.
I'm dying to try the new cotton blends yarn. Had some before Christmas but DH went on a cleaning spree on a night he couldn't sleep didn't look in the box and burnt box and my new yarn. He walked on eggshells for weeks after finding out what he did.

Oh I have some of the bamboo and wool and I just love the feel of it. I am saving it for something special LOL I also bought some wool yarn to make socks from when and if I ever get these scarves made . I got one done and I just love it. I made it from a Lion Brand jiffy and now I can't find anymore of it in the stores. It has the feel of angora and is a wine color Sooooooo Soft. I would really like to have some more of it, BUT !

That's where I got it to start with but I have to drive 25 miles just to get there . I thought maybe I could find it more locally but nota. Thanks for the offer Trisha, I'll not make you do that when I can do it when I get the chance to get back there. Roads and stuff to bad to get out and go much of anywhere right now.

I just got a lb. ball of Sugar'n Cream @ AC Moore. its cotton. it was @7.99 but I had printed a coupon for 40% off, so I paid less than $5.

No Trish...no worries. I'll try to be more mindful and post patterns over there.

no crocheting for me today.

Yes, what color and what are you going to make with the cotton? That was a great deal!

Trish, I do too! and I love it in the kitchen. its sturdier than the knitted ones. and washes and dries well.

I was thinking about making a scarf like this with a bigger needle and use DC instead of SC.

This new skein is soft pastel colors. peach, pale olive green, light brown and white. I started a dishcloth. i really dont want to start any new yarn projects till I finish some quilt projects.

I have to say I dont know if it's because I got a new hook or it is the yarn, but its not working up as nicely as the Peaches N cream.

Let's post a question:
whats your favorite brand of crochet hooks?

Nannie most of my hooks are Boye but I have other brands. Tried those made from plastic and don't you know I managed to break every single one of them usinig them? I have one hook that was my MIL's only hook I ever seen her use for small items, I also have one that belonged to my dad. HIs family was large (16 kids) and they were poor so they were all taught to make rugs, hats, and whatever else the family needed to survive.

I just finished making a pot holder out of the pattern nannie put up. LOL I made 2 of the clothes and then stitched the together and wha la I have a pot holder. I kept looking at them and thought why not give it a try. IT WORKS LOL
nannie I use the sugar and cream and the peaches and cream and one of them (can't remember which) does work up a bit easier then the other.
