crochet and knit progress





I'm still on that dish cloth kick! This time I switched it up with a new pattern. The chinese waves dishcloth (free pattern found here).







I guess I'm similar to Amy in that we're both one trick ponies when it comes to crochet! I had originally tried to learn the soft waves ripple pattern, but I just could concentrate hard enough to figure it out...so another granny square it is! This time, I'm sewing in the ends as a go and making one large square instead of 80 smaller squares.







And...we officially have a tulip border! I'm afraid that these blooms are almost spent. But, it's been a delight to come home to these flowers every day!

  3. Such a cute house! I'd say getting 100 tulips was well worth it! They are gorgeous....my Mom would love them! If you ever have too many dishcloths at your house, I'm always here. He he. :)

  7. What an adorable house, the tulips match the door perfectly -- so cute. Our tulips died out a couple of weeks ago and I was sad to see them go.

  8. I've always loved houses with red doors. We briefly rented a little white house with a red front door in the historic district when we first moved here. With our growing family we needed more space, but I sure did enjoy the charm of that little house.
    I always want to take up a pair of needles after seeing your knit and crochet work. Such even stitches!
