Spreading some VD joy.

I mean Valentine's Day, of course! I'm making dishcloths.

If you haven't gotten one of these from me yet, it's only a matter of time, since I cannot seem to stop making them. Stop on by the house, or leave a comment, and I'll bring you one or two. Carrie and Nicola, don't you worry little ladies, I've got some already picked out for you!

















I got it in my head that I wanted to make heart shaped dishcloths. Tried making my own design, then got wise and decided not to reinvent the wheel... er, the heart-shaped dishcloth.

Found this pattern online. Awesome. It's crochet, which I haven't done in FOREVER. Turns out crocheting makes my hands numb after while. Er... maybe I shouldn't have made so many hearts in a row. It's highly addictive. Seriously.

ooh! comment, comment!

those are pretty. I made star shaped ones a long time ago (they looked like starfish in the end) and I wished I had a pattern... but I've never learned to read crochet instructions, so alas...

great yummy colors. Like you could get some dark red yarn and topstitch "BE MINE" or "TRUE LOVE" on them.

Nice architectural pix too BTW. I wish I could join the photo club too - sounds like fun.

I totally love my dishcloths! I might not be able to use them for such a mundane thing, though, as cleaning dirty dishes. I might have to use them as decoration...

Oh, Kelly! I still have the star shaped dishcloth. Just the other day I was going to retire it... it's pretty ratty looking after 10 years of service, but I just couldn't. :)

Katherine, you must USE the dishcloths! I used one the other night, and it pleased me to no end... almost made doing dishes fun. Well, maybe not FUN, but, you know... :)

alright. I admit it. I *used* one. The red one. L-O-V-E. Looooove!

I couldn't help it. It called to me. You know how I am with red!
