Fiesta Tunisian Short Row Dishcloth

This is a busy time of year for school fundraisers, and with my eldest a senior in high school and my middle one in kindergarten, I have quite a few that I am committed to over the next few months. One for the high school is going to be a coffeehouse evening with music, desserts and an extensive silent auction consisting of all kinds of prizes and gift baskets and restaurant certificates and the like. I've been quite taken recently with these cotton dish and face cloths, so I volunteered to make some for the Bed & Bath basket, the Kitchen basket and the New Baby basket. Here's one of my offerings...

Fiesta Tunisian Short Row DishclothYou will recognize this pattern as the Tunisian Short Row dishcloth about which I shared a how-to video not too long ago. The big difference here is of course the color...Wow! Don't you just love the bright cheerful Fiesta cotton that I used on this one?

Fiesta Tunisian Short Row DishclothI think this would make a great face cloth to use first thing in the morning. It would really wake you up!

If you haven't tried Tunisian crochet yet, you can check out the video tutorials here at Hooked On Needles. Then grab a hook and a ball of cotton and give this dishcloth a try. It is fun and easy, and works up very quickly. I made this one in about 2 hours while relaxing in the evening.

This cough is still hanging on, so I have not yet been able to video the Hawaiian granny square, but I've been having fun with my graph paper and will have another Tunisian cotton cloth pattern to share with you shortly. I can do that without talking!

Happy St. Patrick's Day and Happy Stitching!
