Some Crocheting

Pin It
A while back, I showed you this pattern that I had pinned from Pinterest.  Well after finishing the afghan from hell, I quickly found the proper crochet hook, some spring-like Peaches and Cream cotton yarn and dove right in.
 It didn't take me long.  While visiting one Saturday afternoon with some friends, I quietly crocheted as we talked, then that evening I continued to pluck away at it.  The next morning, I knew I could easily finish it and that is just what I did.
The pattern was quite simple.  Mostly repetitive but I did find that main body of the towel was a bit too long for my liking.  Making a few minor adjustments ..... cutting out rows 51 to 59 .... seemed to help.  I could actually have cut out a couple of more rows, which I will do next time because yes, I will be making more of these. 
Finding a button and attaching it, I quickly set to work in making some dishcloths to match.  Perfect colors for Spring!
It is nice to finally try some of the Pinterest projects that I keep pinning.  Happy crocheting/knitting and remember to give your loved ones a hug!



  1. Such a pretty and fresh color. Makes me think of spring flowers...Oh, spring can't come fast enough!

    It's always so rewarding when I'm working in my kitchen and I pull out a dish cloth I've made. Seems to make the work go quicker for some reason or, I don't seem to mind it as much LOL! Nice job Debbie

    1. Thanks Katie and yes the work seems to go faster with homemade dish cloths!

  2. So beautiful, bright and cheerful! The colors make me smile :)

    Have a great weekend.

    get it going. One day I suppose.
