Lovin’ your blog every day! Wish I could speak crochet…

Beautiful. As a beginner (at actually reading a pattern) I can understand what you wrote. NOW I just want to sit down and try it, but it will have to wait a few weeks. Thanks for sharing. Emily

Ha! I first read this post through my e-mail subscription without the photo. I am not a crocheter, but knowing that your’re a writer and there have been posts here lately about writing, I thought this was an example of the shorthand you use to make notes to yourself about edits you need to make – “dc” being a character’s initials, “ch” standing for chapter, etc. When I pulled up the page, saw the photo, and re-read, I realized how wrong that was. :0)

what yarn makes the best scrubbing cloth?

the only thing I can’t see on the pattern is the size hook to use and the size yarn to use. Thanks for the pattern. Bonnie

I almost always use an H and standard lily cotton. Sorry about that.

I love your filet-ish dishcloth! I’ve made several using Royale Gemini thread (2 #10 strands wound together– though I’m having trouble finding more of this type!) It dries fairly quickly–especially good in summer & has a good but open weight to it. I Ch 49 & use an F hook. I can send a picture when I get it off our camera. I repeat rows 3-5 four times & then dc around the outside.
