Dishcloth Mania!

We ran into town after Dewey's PT visit this morning and I begged a stop at Hobby Lobby for another cotton skein. No, didn't buy all this today, but I added a couple to my already large dishcloth cotton stash here.

And I found a book on their clearance end cap -- The BIG BOOK of Dishcloths (Leisure Arts #3027). This baby has 99 designs.

I'll be crocheting enough dishcloths and potholders for everyone with inspiration like that! Not to mention that any one of the pattern stitches could easily work for an afghan...imagine that sampler afghan, with 99 blocks!

I love multi-purpose...and goodies on sale.

I'm planning to just keep knocking them out, tossing them into a rubbermaid tub for safe keeping. Perhaps we'll have a ggod supply to add to the basket at the farm market. Perhaps I'll do another Pay It Forward or something. Either way, my Mom and Grandma can surely expect an abundanceof dishcloths as gifts this year. As can the children plan for hope chest additions.

So, Lyn (Crochet on The Homestead link I shared the other day) and that crochet along of hers has created dishcloth mania here on this homestead!

Ahhh, so many color combinations...so many patterns...thankfully there's never a shortage of dirty dishes around here!

How wonderful that you were able to get the book for such a small price :)

Dishclothes are just the easiest and most satisfying thing to crochet!
