First saw these two 12 Point Round Dishcloths whipped up:
An easy pattern for a fun-shaped dishcloth.
Then I tried my hand at an Entrelac crochet pattern called Around the World Throw. I had such good intentions of doing this CAL, but after spending nearly 2 hours crocheting to only come up with this:
Ugh. I decided I no longer cared to make a whole blanket using this stitch. My tension is all wrong - totally inconsistent - and the stitch pattern is way too tedious for my tastes, so out that blanket is going to go and I'll use the above yarns for something I'll (hopefully) enjoy crocheting much more. As much as I wanted to give this pattern a go, I'm trying to see it as a positive that I decided relatively quickly to throw in the towel on it.
Having said that, though... To get over having quit a project so readily and, I'll admit - feeling a bit like a failure, I whipped up this Log Cabin Granny Square Potholder yesterday:
I shamelessly (almost completely) copied Casey at knits and what-not, as I made this. Casey was my original inspiration for my Potholders for Posterity collection, so I figure it's fitting I copy at least one of her creations. :)
And, well... except for noodling around a bit on my Moroccan Tile Afghan, that's it on the crochet front this week.
