I don't know what would happen if I let a week go by without making a dishcloth and blogging about it. So I don't want to find out. And, I'm all about circles right now. I just like them. I like the way they look, and I really like the process of making them. I like not having to turn my work. I like not having to worry about keeping my edges even (this is a problem for me in crochet). I like having yarns similar to a pattern's picture.
And so, with all those factors in mind, I crocheted the Lacy Stripes pattern from Dishcloths. I uses about 70 yards of yarn altogether, and it's just so pretty. And if you fold it in half, it's thick enough for cleaning jobs.
It's a bit large, so folding it in half suits me just fine anyway. Did I mention that I'm keeping this for myself?

I am. These colors are nearly tropical and I want some sunshiney and summery colors to cheer me up when I'm wiping off surfaces and washing dishes. I kind of want to make another one in yellows and oranges so it looks like a marigold. It surprises me a little that I have opinions about crocheted dishcloths, but only a little because I tend to have lots of opinions about lots of things. And how could you not feel happier just looking at this Starburst-looking circle of goodness?
This is such a great pattern! I made this in about an hour and a half while in the car--as a passenger! Promise--over the weekend. The pink stripes are Sugar'n Cream Hot Pink and the variegated yarn is in the Playtime colorway. I really like pinks and yellows and oranges together.
