Hey, Kim! Here's something else your cotton yarn would be good for. I love pfirsch's Viennese potholder. See her photo album at pfirsch.my.weblogimages.com/index.php?mode=list&folder=7948. The pattern came from www.grannys-garret.com/pattern/crochetpattern.html#kitchen. I want to make some, but want solid medium or dark blue yarn for mine and haven't found any.

Kim, I bought one of those Bernat handicrafter "whacks" and I've made 3 potholders, 3 dishcloths, and a liquid dishsoap dispenser dress and I still have half left. Amazing yarn that is!

Come to think of it, I stumbled across some at eBay a few days ago but didn't think much about it at the time. They were gorgeous color combinations, just like this one is. Maybe I'll have to check back again... <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/wink.gif" />

OMG! You have the best imagination! Do you see critters in everything? I love the ones you've shared with us so far. I also think Okky in the water would look great on my computer, next to my 2 crocheted computer bugs and an angel.

I think they're becoming addictive.

Rick picked these colors out himself, he did a great job I think. And we bought seven skeins of cotton thread the other day for more; I wonder if anyone I know is having a housewarming soon. <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/wink.gif" />

 

They'll be in my house, you wait and see!

Thanks everyone! <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif" />

 

We use them more for coasters than anything else. I have grabbed one for a hot pad on occasion, but mostly coasters. They are oversized and for clumsy me, that is perfect!

They all look great! Ok Margaret, you have to show yours now. You've got me curious. I'll bet it looks better than you think. :jump

Oh no!!! Peer pressure.:\

 

I'm having trouble going round and round. I tried finding a online tutorial for crocheting-in-the-round...I seems there are several ways to move from one circle to the next. Or maybe I'm mixed up. :b

 

I've frogged...and I need more time. :jump

 

Thanks for the encouragement. :)

Take all the time you need, there is no rush. It's tricky to get but once you do you'll never forget how. Feel free to shoot questions if you want, that's what the forum is for. <img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/happy.gif" />

Yesterday I finished two of the Crochet Me(Pam's) dishcloths. One is done in a Fiesta or Mexicali ombre and bordered in yellow and the other one is yellow bordered in the ombre. Mine seem to have a teardrop shape to them. DH asked why mine wasn't round like the one in the picture, I told him that I made it that way so that I could hang it from the pointy end for it to dry. Good save huh?

 

I haven't crocheted in the round in a few years so hopefully with each dishcloth mine will get more and more round. My seam is really obvious too.

I finally gave in and did this yesterday...took me long enough, it's been on my Works to Start list forever. So when I sat down to watch "The Swan" (Yes, I know, I watch HORRIBLE television...it's like a train wreck I can't stop looking at), I figured I should do something worthwhile during it. So I wrote down the pattern, and finished before it was over. Now it's on my desk, a little coaster/mat for my water bottle. As soon as I get my digital camera back, I'll show you how unremarkable mine really is :b

Thanks for this pattern and...I'm VERY new to crocheting in the round, but have made 2 dishcloths using this pattern. :bounce

 

Am I off my rocker, or should the pattern state that each round should end by being joined to the 1st stitch of that round (usually ch 3) with a sl st? Or is this assumed when doing rounds?

 

Thanks for your help...and this great board! I've been lurking for a bit and am glad to finally speak up (well, sorta).

Welcome to Crochetville, Jennie! :welcome You're right, each round should be joined with a sl st to the top of the ch 3. I would not say it's assumed when working in the round because instead of joining you could just keep going in a spiral. The pattern does say join at the end of each round, but it doesn't specify how.

Thanks Donna! I'm IN AWE of the fabulous work you've displayed on your blog...sweater, socks, AND an ice cream cone? Wow...it gives me something to aim for! How cute would it be to have various "flavors" of ice cream cones as part of your decor? Now I MUST sign up for the crochet me newsletter!
