Finished Object Friday
For the last couple of days I've been knitting my vest fairly monogamously - after all I'd like to finish the vest while the weather remains vest-suitable. But I did take a bit of a time out to crochet this little star dishcloth. I've crocheted it with a size H hook from scraps of dishcloth cotton, and despite the pattern name it works up to a not insubstantial 8-1/2" across.
In fact round five should have been yellow as well, but after round four there was very little yellow left so I worked that round as well as the edging in natural. And dare I say, I think it's pretty nice this way. This pattern has crocheted up extremely well - my finished result is flat, even and looks exactly like the pattern photo - so it's a keeper. Too bad I don't have more scraps of different coloured dishcloth cotton in my stash. Although ... maybe I can convince my crafty friends to donate some of their scraps ... or trade them them for entire balls of natural colour? Hmmm. Must work on that.
If you've got some time today, have a look at the parade of finished objects at Tami's Amis. There's almost always something inspiring and surprising!
