#149 Mint Bobbles Crochet Dishcloth – Maggie Weldon Maggies Crochet


Sunday May 29, 2011 Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend also marks the beginning of summer and vacations.  It’s a great time to work with cotton crochet yarn or thread vs. acrylic.  Smaller designs or motifs are better projects while you’re on the run.  I am already thinking about what crochet projects to bring on my trip to Las Vegas in 2 weeks.
Follow me onto dishcloth #150 and the rest of the story…
