Thank you to everyone for all their wonderful compliments on my dishcloths and my blog!! I'm new to the whole "blogging" thing, so it's nice to get a little recognition!! I appreciate it!! To be quite honest, I'm really enjoying this. It's actually inspiring me to do more knitting. The Knit~A~Long that I participated in was fun, and I'm looking forward to the next one in October...perhaps a halloween theme?? Anyway, I have posted some more pictures of dishcloths I did up with little houses in it from the Dishcloth Boutique. I really like the "house" theme when it comes to dishcloths, I'm always looking for new "house" patterns to incorporate into dishcloths. I have only found a few, but they're just not what I'm looking for...perhaps I just have to come up with my own creation!! So far my favourite out of the bunch is this one found at the Dishcloth Boutique, but there is another one here at Melissa's Knit Dishcloth Patterns Page, and then there is an afghan square that I was thinking of creating a dishcloth out of here at The three that I did up below here have a bigger border than the original one, which I put at the bottom so you could see the difference. I like a bigger border because I think it looks prettier and I also like a bigger cloth altogether because when they get washed and dried, they tend to shrink. I'd like to hear if anyone has any suggestions on any other "house" patterns that could be used for a dishcloth, as I'm always looking. Anyway, should get going, here are the photos of my "little houses" dishcloths.
And to the Knotty Kitty (you know who you are), I checked out your blog, glad it worked out for you, no thanks necessary! Thanks for the lovely referral!
