2009 March Mid-Month KAL - Windwill

Another terrific pattern from Yahoo group, Monthly Dishcloth. I love looking at all the differnt variegated yarns that the members used. This yarn came from one of those big kits at Hobby Lobby with 3 Large Skeins. This pattern was surprisingly easy.

Crochet Superstar Baby Blanket

Crochet Superstar Baby Blanket

I finished this quick Baby's afghan in just a couple days. The pattern is poorly written, but if you have made a couple Round Ripples you should be safe. There is no Rnd 8. I used Bernat Softee, with 2 balls of #30301 Baby Pink Marl and 1 ball of #02000 White. It is a free paper pattern at their store.
If you can't find it I have it here.
and the second side here.
From point to point mine ended up being about 25 inches. I used a Size G hook, and had enough of the white yarn left to do another afghan.
I wrote a tutorial hoping this will help.

2009 January Mid-Month KAL - Cheyenna Dishcloth

2009 January Mid-Month KAL - Cheyenna Dishcloth
I am going to have to block all my new dishcloths when I get home. My daughter-in-law has fallen in love with them.
We are hoping to leave the Brown water of Greenville, Mississippi behind this Friday and head over to Dallas, then finally home to see our accountant. He's not going to be happy with our bookkeeping this year. With the taxes out of the way, it looks like we will be heading back here.Hopefully the Mesquitos won't be out by then.
I am finally starting to understand the Mississippi Delta language, it can be very difficult unless someone speaks slowly. Trust me you don't want to take what the waitress is saying even if you think you understand. I have found it best to point to what you want on the menu.
