No more dishcloths! Bamboo yarn stash now gone...



I think I am boring everyone by continuing to show these crocheted dishcloths, but I don't think I am finished with them yet. I made these from leftover yarns, I think these are kind of fun.The multicolored yarn is not bamboo, it is actually 100% cotton, but I did not have enough bamboo yarn to make these and I wanted to add splashes of colour.



There is a heart in the middle of this one, I swear! I was inspired by a Canadian artist who crochets texts -  her blog, (sc), is so much fun to look at! I wanted to make something similar and experimented with adding a heart to the middle of the dishcloth. I kind of like it. Unfortunately I ran out of yarn and had to add lace trimming to only two sides to make the dishcloth look even and that was a bit of a mistake. iI looks a bit silly! I will use it, though.



I tried a new lace pattern for making the trimming to this dishcloth. Cute.




 I did not have enough yarn to make single colour dishloths from these yarns. So I added a multicoloured trim, once again.

This is the final dishcloth I made. I used up every bamboo yarn I had (except green, dark blue and black, since they did not fit this colour palette). There are two different yellows, two turquoises, two pinks - the rest is made with the multicoloured yarn.

Voi ihania!! Käytätkö kaikki itse, vai saiskos sulta ostaa jnkun? :) Iskin silmäni tuohon vaaleansiniseen, jossa on monivärinen reunus, eli sen keltaisen pitsireunaisen jälkeen kolmas (turkoosi, keltainen, ja kolmantena se tarkoittamani vaaleansininen, jossa monivärinen reunus). Jollei näyttö ihan vääristä, olis tuo aika prikulleen oiken värinen mun keittiööni...

Kuis on? Paljonko haluat? :D

Joo, se on vapaana, Meeri :) Sellainen varoituksen sana, että siinä reunuksessa on muitakinvärejä kuin näkyvillä olevat, eli oranssia ja vaaleanpunaista myös. Samaa lankaa siis kuin muissakin monivärisissä.

Miltäs kuulostaa?

Ihanan värikkäitä! Ehkä munkin pitää kokeilla taas virkaten.

I love these dishclothes! I'm just learning to crochet, but these would make great Christmas presents.
