Summer Crocheting ~ More Cotton Dishcloths/Washcloths

Hard to believe it's just been a full week since my children got out of school for the summer, probably because we've been keeping busy. We've already been to the library twice, swimming at a friend's house, a major clean-up of the play room, some serious sewing (aka 'paid work'!) started and finished. It's all good!

All of you who have followed me for some time now know that I always have a crochet or knit project going so I have something to keep my hands busy when I finally sit down for the evening. In the hot weather, I just cannot tolerate the weight of a big afghan or even the feel of acrylic yarn, so this is when I stock up on cotton wash cloths for my shop and for gift giving. Earlier this year, I loaded up on balls of my favorite Sugar 'n Cream cotton yarn in all different solid and variegated colors, and I've been stitching away the evenings.

Here's what I have so far...

Summer Crocheting ~ More Cotton Dishcloths/WashclothsA lovely array of colors, don't you think? I actually had more but one of the moms at school bought a few already! They don't last long once word gets out that good old fashioned cotton wash cloths are still being made!

These will be over in my Etsy shop very soon, so if you want to stock up too, just shoot me an email or check out the shop! As always, if you're local and I can deliver in person, let me know before you purchase so I can take off the shipping charge!

Happy Stitching!
