Well, shoot! Here I thought I had found a goldmine, and I rushed out here to share it with everyone! :D Glad to see you guys already found this, though. I just downloaded a bunch of patterns from this site.

I can't believe I'm addicted to dishcloths now!!

Here's some of my finished dishcloths
Yeah - I'm addicted to dishcloths now too! They're fun patterns that only take a day or two to make. I love the feeling of accomplishment! Every woman in my family is getting these as stocking stuffers for Christmas. I bought a ton of Sugar n Cream yarn online and I'm loving all of the different colors and the way they come out with the patterns.

My only question is what kind of fund projects can I do with the left over yarn? I was thinking about making scarfs and hats for the homeless in my area but I heard about a scrap afgan with left over yarn and I wanted to see if anyone ever made one?

What kind of yarn are you using? I love that rainbow one! And what is the stitch pattern?

I have one in process, its just using that suggar and cream stuff, and I think I made it too wide....its just easy knittin when you dont need to see what you are doing.

kitkat - The yarn I used was Lily Sugar'n Cream Rainbow Bright. I ordered a whole box of yarn with tons of colors from:
www.herrschners.com
The pattern is Blissful Moss from this site:
http://www.royea.net/mossrib.html

This is how anal/organized I am: I took all of the websites for dischcloth pattern recommendations, printed out the ones I liked and put them in a 3 ring binder. I liked that idea so much that I took all of my print outs of stuff I've made and would like to make and put them in there too. Now it's on my bookshelf with all of my other craft books so when I'm finished with one I don't have to get online to find my next project. I can just flip through the pages.
I definitely need to seek help . . . :D

NO! Not at ALL! I did the same thing! And, I am one of the most DISorganized people you will ever meet! I even got sheet protectors/dividers for the whole thing, made categories, and a cool pictoral cover sheet that I slipped in to the front of the binder! AND, each section has its own pic!

Suzie,

I am AS anal as you, I have a three ring binder going too. With edit.....and as I have had other patterns that I was eyeballing disappear, I think it was a very smart idea. I also am a Suzie

Owl Patterns
hippodamia - Definitely send any owl patterns my way too. I would love to make an owl afgan or find towels & potholders to match the dishcloth pattern! I haven't had a chance to google them yet but I'd love to add more owl stuff to my list of projects.
