When she asked me if I wanted to learn, I couldn’t say YES fast enough. I’ve been enjoying crocheting ever since. I find it very relaxing. My favorite items to crochet are: dishcloths, scarves, afghans, holiday decorations and ornaments, to name a few. And what better way to enjoy your favorite hobby than to enter this contest. Thank you Maggie’s Crochet! ” Thank you Deborah for joining the Dishcloth-A-Day Challenge!

    really wanted to try this when i saw it this morning, but was out of red. i did it in a dark pink varigated, but still did the black edging. it looks really neat.
