The first one bites the dust !

Remember those six potholders I made for gifts ? Well, I've decided to do six dishcloths to go with them. Just finished No.1 ...

Did this in Bendigo Woolen Mills 8ply cotton with a 3.50mm hook. Its just a basic V-stitch pattern with a few rounds of dc (or sc if you're American) around the edge and finished off with a round of crab stitch. The main part is a mocha type colour and the border is cream (or I think they call it parchment). Might do No. 2 the other way around.

I am so tempted to buy that book on eBay but I'm trying to be strong. The cost of the book isn't so bad but the postage is about $15 so all up it would be a bit pricey. The pattern I really like is the dog bed (pic in yesterdays post)but I'm thinking it wouldn't be all that hard to work out a similar pattern. To take my mind off it last night, I trawled around a bit on Ravelry and came across a nice square pattern. So, out with the yarn and hook and a little while later ...

Had to modify the pattern a bit to make it 7" square so I could use it for the Australiacrochet square exchange. Used Naturally Loyal 8ply (machine washable) with a 4.50mm hook. If you're interested in the pattern and you're on Ravelry, you'll find it here.

Is it recipe time ? Let's go back awhile - do you remember this one ?


1 large pkt Nutrigrain (about 600g I think)
1 pkt French Onion Soup powder
1 pkt Cream of Chicken soup powder
1 desertspoon Curry powder
½ cup warm oil
1 cup sultanas (optional)
1 cup unsalted peanuts

Mix all together and don't eat all at once. !!!!
