I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post. Good way to keep an audience. :(
In any event, for part of that month my hubby and I spent some time away as he took a much needed break from work. I intended to take along some small projects to work on, but the weekend before we left was so hectic that I just didn't have the time to choose a project and gather the supplies I'd need, so I left empty handed. We kept ourselves busy during the day, but by the time evening rolled around and we were back at the hotel for the night, I was regretting not having a hook or yarn with me. So off to a local store we went, where I picked up a hook and a few balls of cotton yarn. If I'd have found any patterns I could use, I'd have picked them up too, but they were few and far between. Not a problem, I've crocheted long enough to not need a pattern all the time. I decided to make some good old dishcloths, perfect little stocking stuffers with Christmas coming up! I wanted to make some that were a bit smaller than my last batch, so I just adjusted as I made each cloth until I found the numbers that worked. The pattern wasn't anything special, basically just rows of alternating single crochets and chain 1 spaces. I didn't work on them every night, but in the end I came home with 15 completed, 1 partly completed, and 2 1/2 balls of yarn to make more cloths with. Here are the completed ones!
Jared picked out a lot of the colors for me. One ball was self striping, the first time I've worked with that type of yarn. I think they all worked out quite nicely!
Now to decide on the next project(s)...
