Goal Update

Here is a snowman cloth from the Kris Knits January KAL. I used size 5 needles and Sugar 'N Cream Cornflower Blue.

Here is another pattern from Kris Knits. It's called "Be My Dishcloth" and the pattern for this one is a freebie from her web site. I used size 5 needles and Sugar 'N Cream Hot Pink.

This is "Heart Dishcloth" I knitted along with the MonthlyDishcloth yahoo group. They do two KAL's per month so that will really help me achieve my goal! I used size 7 needles and Lion Cotton in Poppy Red.

This one is Frame My Heart With Lace, also from the MonthlyDishcloth group. I used size 7 needles and Sugar 'N Cream Soft Violet.

Here are the five pairs of slippers I have crocheted so far this year. Sorry the picture is so dark. Our weather has been quite gloomy so this will have to suffice. The two pink pairs are in my gift stash and I sent the other three pairs to my son for his friends he is in Tech school with. This is my absolute favorite pattern which can be found here. I have made hundreds of these because they are quick and a great stash buster. I use red heart yarn so they can be washed and dried without being ruined and they wear like iron!

I also have a few small cross stitch finishes but will save those for another day. Maybe when I can get better pictures of them.

Thank you to each person who entered my drawing. I know I don't have a lot of readers but I do appreciate each and every one of you who do take the time to read my blog =) I promise to have another give-away very soon so keep checking back!

Have a great day!

I love all your dish cloths, Paula :) Nice work :)

I love your discloths, I love to crochet them for myself, I think they wipe up counters so nicely. And those little tootsie warmers are sweet. My Mama crochets some that look just like those. She makes big puffy ball things and put them on the toes so we look like clowns :)

You've been keeping busy! Love your dishcloths...I really like the different patterns you do (cuz you know me, I just do plain ol garter stitch.)

And there's nothing like handmade slippers to keep your tootsies toasty :)

Very nice dishcloths. And these slippers look really warm.

Will chat via email real soon. Hope all is well.

I love the dish cloths! My daughter is just learning to crochet and wants to learn to knit. I've shown her the dish cloths that people have on blogs and I'm hoping she'll whip up a few for me. ;)

I love the slippers! I have a pair just like those...made by my mom! I do stitch alot...but in the winter months I find that I crochet more than stitch. huggerz laurel
