Crochet 101 homework

In our first Crochet 101 class on Wednesday, we learned two basics ... the chain stitch and the single crochet stitch.

Our homework was to make a dishcloth using these stitches.

I finished mine this afternoon and here it is ... ta da!

I only screwed up once ... in the third row I missed a stitch at the end of the row. I didn't notice it until row 10. You can see it at the bottom of the right hand corner. Ooops!

Instead of ripping it apart to row three to fix it, I kept going, knowing I wouldn't do it again.

I had to keep watching what I was I doing but once I got the rhythm, it went smoother.

Way to go! Finishing is so satisfying, don't you think?!

Good luck with crocheting. Looks like you are on your way. And thanks for dropping by the blog and saying hey!

Good for you!!! It looks good! My first blanket I did as a child, one corner is totally off. ha ha. I wonder if my mom still has it.

But i love the color you picked. See crocheting isn't so bad.

I LOVE homeade dishcloths. And as containing my midsection becomes more and more aof a challenge, they are a more welcome Christmas gift than a box of cookies.
