(Unblocked dishcloth)

This is going to be part of my surprise swap gift, when I get around to parcelling it up and mailing it. There’s no rush – the deadline for mailing is a month away.

I could send it off soon, but I might wait another week or two just to see if I can think of any small additions.

This free  pattern is called Sunny dishcloth by  Yarnspirations. It’s very simple and probably took only about an hour to make. The main part is a plain circle made up of hdcs, and the points of the sun are constructed sideways with ever taller stitches. Quite simple and once you’ve made one point you’re away. It’s made from worsted weight cotton (in this case, Bernat Handicrafter – By the Sea colourway) and a 5mm hook.

Have you seen the beautiful Peacock Tail Bag from Lilla Bjorn? It’s a Crochet-along (CAL) that will start on August 17th. We’re going to be talking about it and posting progress pics in the Ravelry Group Colourful CALs/KALs and I think I might join in. My thought is to use the jewel toned pack of Deramores Studio DK that I bought months ago.

I’m a bit of a rebel – I don’t like being told what to do, and sometimes I feel like a specific commitment is too much to think about and clutters up my brain, which is why I’m not joining in with the Ravellenic Games this time around (the knitting and crochet version of the Olympics). However this is one gorgeous bag.

It depends on how I feel in August, but it’s not as big a commitment as a blanket CAL so I think I might do it!
