The Washcloths

So I've been making washcloths, too. I told Ally I'd make the same pattern in different colors for her friend Jana and her daughters. I used the Feather and Fan pattern. Jana likes ocean colors so I found this self striping cotton that reminded me of an ocean. The girls get solid colors. Here are the pictures.

Then I got busy and here's one in the Chinese Waves pattern I made for Jo:

So of course I made something else, too, in that color. I hope you can see the pattern.

The Doilies

I set up a private swap with someone who wanted a spiderweb doily. Well I got sidetracked and decided I'd make a couple. Now the pictures for Tamisha's doily and Sarah's are being posted ahead of mailing. I will be mailing Tamisha's probably tomorrow and Sarah's will go out after Labor Day because I want to add something to the package. Tamisha has a smaller "web" doily. The one on the left is the big one for Sarah and the one on the right is for Tamisha.

So after I finished these two I was in Joann's and bought myself some pink crochet thread to make something for myself. Here's what I made me. Maybe I'll make a few doilies to throw in my gifting stash. And swapping stash.
