#94 Carnival Crochet Dishcloth

Monday April 4, 2011 – Many of you following the Dishcloth-day-Challenge have commented that the dishcloths are too pretty to use.  Several ideas have come in for alternate ways to use these patterns.  Several of the dishcloths would make wonderful motifs for afghans.  Another use would be to make two and crochet them together for a potholder.  If you have any other ideas we would love to hear from you.
Follow me onto dishcloth #95 and the rest of the story…
