While Isaac blew around us, I completed another dishcloth. That is three I've made with this pattern, all different sizes. I missed the last sc row on the yellow one but it's a dishcloth so ... I didn't bother to rip it. I sent all three off with my son as he moves to a new place. The yellow has 6 cross-overs, the blue has 7, and the peach has 8. Note that as you get wider, you also must get longer.

I really like this pattern. I have tweaked the original pattern a bit, so if you saved it off, you may want to have another look at the post to see which you prefer.

I am finishing up the tails on a Season 13 Doctor Who scarf. Will post pics when it's done, of course. That will give me a scarf for Seasons 12, 13, 14, and 18. A knitted 12.5 is in progress (not by me!). A 15 is waiting on the proper blue-grey. Most of these are not wide as the original. I intend to use them. Once I get these done, I am anxious to get back to making hats and scarves for the Bridge Project and also the Visiting Nurse Services in New York needs chemo hats desperately. So much need, so little time.

I also once again hurt my back so being in any position for too long is uncomfortable. Hopefully that will clear up soon and I will feel more like doing things. I know that I am blessed as some folks have pain constantly and this is only temporary.

Happy crocheting!


  1. I'm sorry that you had to go through Isaac. The really good thing about crochet is that you can do it without electricity and it helps with the stress you feel-any kind of stress.
    One of my fears is loosing my vision, so over the years I have taught myself how to crochet some things without looking. I do it in the dark as I try to go to sleep (wearing a sleeping mask). It really shows what you need to work on and what you have a good handle on. It also freaks out my daughter, which makes it all worth it.

    1. That is so interesting, Linda. I am already partially deaf so losing my sight would be a terrible blow. I have often thought I should learn to crochet while not looking. A few years ago I received a donation of butterflies made by a young lady who was blind. They were beautiful! It can be done! Thanks for sharing.

  2. So glad you didn't have too hard a time with Issac's. Sorry to hear about your back. I visit the chiropracter and have massage pretty regularly and have lots of stretches I do to do help. Love the cloths, and hope your son enjoys his new place. Rounding from Sandy's today.
