Making cotton dishcloths again

I'm joining in with the dishcloth swap that Mel from One Crafty Mumma is running, so I've whipped up a few new dishcloths. Some use my favourite waffle knitting pattern from Deb at Homespun Living. I've made dozens and dozens of these over the years - probably over a hundred actually. I've also tried a couple of new crochet patterns, including a fun star dishcloth which I found on Pinterest. I've used two strands of Bendigo Woolen Mills cotton in Pomegranate for this one
(their cotton is not as thick as some of the American brands, so one strand is not enough, I find). Putting these together, I've noticed that I've used quite Christmassy colours. I'm not really ready for Christmas yet, but I guess I've subconsciously started preparing :) Feels good to be back making things again. Next project is a baby boy quilt for our next door neighbours. Any crafting going on at your place - Christmas crafting perhaps?
