Wrapping up My Dishcloth Obsession

I might be finished with my obsession with dishcloths for now. I can't promise not to sneak a dishcloth or 2 in every now and then, but I have started a non-dishcloth project and I will be focusing on it. I have started a shawl in a pretty yarn that I bought quite some time ago and had stashed away. Here's the dishcloth wrap-up and the start of the shawl and links to the patterns.

From scraps:


I had spent quite a bit of time looking for a casual shawl pattern that would look good with jeans and be easy to make and watch a movie at the same time. I didn't want the half granny square one that has an easy repetitive pattern. I did find The Simple Crochet Shawl and even though it was reminiscent of the half granny square shawl it was different enough to fit the bill. The color of the yarn will go great with jeans. I didn't get too much done last night but I hope to finish this fairly quickly and share pictures.

This morning I found a free kindle book: 16 Crochet Shawl Patterns: DIY Clothing You'll Love. You can get a Kindle for PC app, Kindle for Android, or Kindle for Mac apps for free and are great if you you don't have a kindle and would like to take advantage of these freebies. There were numerous other free crochet books for kindle too. Before checking out, double check and make sure the prices are still free.

Husband is sawing and hammering in the background. I will do a bathroom status update in a day or 2. Time for me to do something constructive here so later gator!
