I've made a couple of dishcloths which will be going to son. He's moving into an apartment and needs all the startup things.

This first is about 9" square. It is a simple ch 31, with alternating rows of dc and (dc, ch 1, sk 1). There are 8 dc rows and 7 skippa rows. Edging is dc.

Of course there must be a Who item. This cloth is about 10" x 12". I took the Dalek out of Elizabeth Harac's pattern chart to make this dishcloth using worsted yarn from Annie's Hook and Needle Club. The chart is at Ravelry

Edging is a round of dc along the sides and sc top and bottom as I didn't want to add any more length.

That's all that's new today. The Who scarf got buried under cotton yarn. LOL

Happy crocheting!

doctor who scarf and ghan

I've worked a bit more on the Season 18 scarf.

It's about 54". The picture shows it laid out on a queen size bed.The Lion Brand suede is not bad to work with but not easy to rip back. I'll have lots of tails to sew in which is not my favorite part but it must be done. :-)

I also finished the three strips for the baby afghan. I just can't decide how I want to assemble them. I've tried the mattress stitch but you can still see a little bit of the color through. I've tried the single crochet join and didn't like the way that turned out - plus it makes the width shorter. I am considering adding an edging to the strips though I didn't really want to do that as it will break up the flow. Still thinking ...

I also plan to make some dishcloths as son is moving into a new apartment and will need all the start up things he didn't have to supply in his present place.

Happy crocheting!
