Entrelac Dishcloth or Washcloth

Here is a dishcloth or washcloth whichever you like to call them... lol.  I like to use them for face cloths too.  They are  great for scrubbing faces or dishes.  :-) 

I had left my travel cloth in Minnesota last year, so when I was going to Florida I needed a new cloth.  I like to have a small project to work on on the plane and this one fit the  Plus I love the looks you get when you are using a hook and making something that looks like knit!  The man on the first plane was very intrigued with the effect.

I had a little fun with the stitches.  One row of blocks is done with a row of Tunisian Knit then a row of Purl up the block.  The next row of blocks is done all in Tunisian Knit.  I liked how it came out with all the nubbies.

Irish Potato People

Here is my offering for St. Patrick's Day!

Stormyz's made some of these last year and I wanted to make some of these little guys for myself and the church craft group.  I had fun with the hat placements it gave each one a little characture of it's own. 

I used Crochetsal's pattern for Pet Rock People to start with.  The pattern can be found on her website give it a look, she has some real cuties. 
I thought ILTY - Ivory Tweed for the body would give it a neat mottled effect.  I didn't have a good orange for the hair but this fuzzy dark amber yarn created the look of hair that I wanted. 

Of course you have to have a basketful of potatoes... right?  Lol

May the Luck of the Irish be with you this day and thruout the year.
