Using up leftovers.....

Back in June, I showed you my new crochet hexagon bathmat. I had a good deal of the cotton yarn leftover. I needed to make a gift for a friend so I used some of the yarn to make these...


Three cotton dishcloths...


But I still had a good bit leftover and did not want to have to store it so I made these odd dishcloths for myself. Since they were for me, I could play a bit and experiment...


In the end, I had enough only for a small round dishcloth and my mother told me to use it under my handsoap at the sink. But I use a pump with liquid soap...still it looked really nice to have this as a doily under the pump...

  1. that is what I use too, Silly Sally. It looks nice. Mine is sitting on one that Haali made for me. That round one you made looks just like a doily your Gramma made for me only using Crochet cotton thread. Kristy calls them thread doilies.
    It looks like you used her pattern and I know you didn't. Strangeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
    Very good use of your scrap yarn.
    Love you, Mom
