Change of Needle..

Fortunately this weekend was our local Community Festival and the weather was perfect for being outside checking out all the organised activities. Lots of good stuff to enjoy. While wandering the streets (yes, literally everything was within walking distance) I did a little crochet - having seen lots of dish cloths in blogland, I found a simple pattern that was easy to memorise and took it walking with me - this is what I came home with after the parade this morning and I am very pleased with the result. Okay, this is the third one I made and the most square so far - but I'm figuring a dish cloth can be any shape right? I have used one of them and am very pleased with it - a cross between a cloth and a scrubber.
I had some success with the sewing machine today, but the quick unpick has become my best friend in the sewing room this weekend and I haven't even started on the bear I messed up on Friday Night.
Have a fantastic week.
Happy Creating

I think you really have to be in the right mood to correct crafting mistakes, so leave the bear until you're in a happy happy place.

I can't crochet at all, so square or not I'm darn impressed with your dishcloth, especially since you did it while walking round.

I really must get better at multi tasking.

Well, there is multi-tasking and there is multi-tasking. No point in wasting that walking around time....just walking around. Like the dishcloth especially the way the colours have come out.
Too bad you've been forced to develop such a close relationship with the quick unpick. Hopefully that won't last too long.

Love your dish cloth... and the fact you made it while walking around... total inspiring!!! Talk about being multi talented. Aren't they great though... I use them all the time now. I think the crochet ones are my favs as they are the quickest to make! Have a great week xx

I think that dish cloth came out very nice. I like using variegated cotton yarn for making dish cloths and yes, they can be any shape. I've even made some round ones. I have a pattern book with all sorts of fancy designs - they actually look like doilies.
I like taking crochet or knitting stuff with me whereever I go. Makes waiting in line or at the doctor's office so easy.
Have a great day. (Sorry I missed last Saturday night's chat session.)
Have a wonderful day,
Doris :-)
