I found a really cool Tunisian stitch dishcloth on Ravelry and wanted to give it a try. I like it a lot and it was easy once I understood how to get the second wedge started.

The other one is just a simple pattern of single and double crochet. Another pattern found on Ravelry.
It's supposed to be 10.5 inches but I ran out of yarn at 9.5. I love the natural pattern of stripes that came out in this cloth. It looks as though I put some thought into creating a diagonal plaid design. I can definitly see myself making a set of dishcloths with this yarn, or should I say cotton. What is it? Lily Sugar'n Cream.

Crochet classes

I started offering crochet classes at work. This past Friday was my second class. My first class only one person showed but this time I had two. I had a lefty and a right-handed person which made things much more interesting. I actually made an attempt to crochet left-handed in order for my student to get a better understanding.

I have a simple pattern for a dishcloth/potholder that will teach single crochet and double crochet to complete the project.

Completed sweater

Finally getting around to posting pics of my last sweater. It's been one of those weird times when I don't want to do much of anything but sit in front of the TV and crochet. So now that I'm back on track, kinda, I'm posting.
I think it came out very nice. I still have not put buttons on but I went to Jo-Ann's yesterday and bought bone rings to make them. I saw a cool pattern right there at the store to show you how to make the buttons. I shouldn't have any trouble making something similar.
