With the heaviness that’s hanging over our country right now, I thought offering up another #happymailmovement giveaway to my readers would be a nice way to kick off the week. It doesn’t make anything right or better, but it’s an itty-bitty way to spread a little happiness.
I’ve been spending a lot of time while under the stay-at-home/safe-at-home orders working on projects around the house and in the garden. In the evenings, though, when I’m tired from the day, I’ve been crocheting dishcloths. I’ve even come up with a couple of new and simple patterns to share! But the point of adding to the growing stack was to give them away.
So, I’ve accumulated ten crocheted dishcloths in a variety of patterns to offer up.
They are all made of 100% cotton Sugar n’ Cream yarn in Ecru. I have found that these wash up nicely and are great to use for wiping down counters and doing light cleaning work. I keep one folded up over the divider in my sink and change it out every day or two. I love their texture and the fact that I can wash and reuse them over and over. They also don’t get stinky like sponges.
I’ve played around with making them with tighter, denser stitches, with popcorn bobbles, and with more of an “open weave” to allow more air through. I even made a little “scrubby sponge” with a loop for hanging…
I like to try something a little different each time.
To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post telling me something you’re thankful for. That’s it! The giveaway will close Friday, June 5, 2020, at midnight PST. I’ll notify and announce the winners the following week.
If you’d like to learn how to crochet, I have several patterns that are a great place to start for beginners or people who need a refresh. There are printable patterns, a video, and a supply list for each project.
Also, the XXL Cotton Yarn that I used for the potholder is back in stock for those who were asking me about it! It’s a nice, thick yarn that is perfect for a potholder.
