A Clean Start to a New Year

My Mum was disappointed that she didn’t get a dishcloth under the Christmas Tree. So contrary to my husband’s opinion on what every mother wants as a gift, I thought I would make it up to her by making one as a Thank-you-for-our-Christmas-Gifts-Gift (though there is a slight worry this could start a thank-you-for-your-gift-gift chain that could never be broken, like the chain letters we had as children, remember them?). I have used this patternĀ  before, it’s pretty but functional as the nubbly bits


are good for scrubbing. It’s just important to concentrate as you crochet and watch Poirot that you don’t get the stitches skewed by watching Poirot too closely and the crochet not close enough.IMG_1248
