    I think you all have created a dishcloth monster....LOL....tonight in my canning class (applesauce this time - what fun!) whenever we had a break I was sitting there crocheting a dishcloth! Almost done with the first one on this set - and these are actually going to be for ME And I'll probably end up making some for little Christmas gifts too. It's just so amazing how fast they work up. I have to find my thingy for downloading pics from my camera to my computer so I can show you.

    Scrubbies.....that sounds interesting. I've never made scrubbies before. I love the ones Madhen showed us that she is making - so cute! Not too sure what kind of thread or yarn is used for a scrubbie. Will have to start looking for a pattern.

    I love the idea of an online class, and I'd love to help, but what kind of set up are we talking about? It could get crazy! I'd love to help everyone learn to knit (or crochet)!

I guess we could have more than one swap going too. Not sure how that could be worked out though

    Anyway, it's just a thought. Would love to hear from others on the board

    A scrubbie is used in the kitchen to wash your pots and pans.

    You make a valid point mamamia. I have been thinking about this for quite some time and how to address it as I want everyone involved..not just knitters/crocheters. It is possible to run two swaps. I would need to talk to Sarah or Gabe on that as I would like it to be in the challenge board...or maybe they might have a better idea.

    I had pictured two swaps...one for knitters/crocheters and one for sewers/crafters and if someone could do both they could switch between swaps when they wanted to. I just couldn't run both...as we have already run into a problem with this swap... one person who signed up has not been back on FV, she has received her dishcloths from her partner so in order to be fair to her partner, I am sending her out a couple of dishcloths. If something like this happened on the sewing swap, I probably wouldn't be able to send a spare one as I can't sew very well!

    Any suggestions anyone else?

    These are the ones I crocheted for my swap partner. The ones I'm working on for myself right now are just like these except the thread is an ombre in shades of purple and green (Sugar 'n Cream Country Side Ombre).

    Thanks Mauimagic I used this pattern: http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2385 (may have to register on the site to see it). It's a very simple pattern, works up quickly and the finished dishcloth has a nice texture to it. I'll definitely make more of these.

    Very cute, luckybustert!!

    I picked up a book on crochet to try this weekend. It has 20-some stitches to learn, teaching you a different stitch in each lesson, each resulting in a square, and when you are done, you seam them all together to make an afghan. We'll see how far I get before I have to return the book to the library!!

    Thanks Madhen

    That is so cool that you're going to try crocheting this weekend! I know you can do it!! By the way, you'll be up and running if you just learn how to make the starting chain and these five stitches: slip stitch, single crochet, half-double crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet. Anything else is really just a variation of these five.

    I know how to make the stitches - it is reading the pattern that gets me into trouble.

    If it is any consolation, I scrubbed a baby jacket after multiple attempts, because the knitting pattern kept telling me I should have 50 stitches after doing some increases, and I kept coming up with 64. I still think there is a mistake in the pattern, but it did have me questioning my ability to read a knitting pattern, as well!
