Dishcloths and Potholders!

Holy Cow!  What a week!  Work has been crazy.  By the time I get home in the evening I'm not worth a flip.  I did manage to get in some knitting time this weekend.  I whipped up some dishcloths and pot holders for a couple of birthday gifts.

Check out this new pattern I found on Ravelry!!  Very easy and quick to do.  It's called Wheatfields.  Check it out and give it a try!

This basket weave pattern is also really pretty.  I am hoping to make up a few more of these to go in my kitchen and some also for my moms. 


Of course, no set of dishcloths is complete with out some crocheted granny square pot holders! 

I really enjoy making these, two solid grannies sandwiched together and then connected with a row of single crochet.  I really wanted to get more of these done, but time just wouldn't allow it.

Here it is Sunday evening already.  I could seriously use another day before Monday gets here, but that's out of the question.  I think the rest of the evening I'll kick back and do some more knitting then hit the hay at a decent hour.

Your potholders are just lovely! Every stitch perfect as usual. Your evening plans sound perfect too. I think I'll do the same :)
