- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

A Crochet question.....
I've got the "itch" to make dishcloths...to crochet them I should say....Never have, and never thought about it much. Got to poking around and thought why not? What opinions do you have about them?
Do they work well? I use handywipes to wash dishes with now, after a few washings they need to washed themselves. How does the crochet washcloth stack up? I would like to use what I have on hand to make one or two...and of course Vintage pattern is what it's all about...I have size 3 & 10 in cotton thread....what size hook?
I'd like an all purpse pattern, something square & Simple ...not to foo foo...my DH does dishes too....something he can wrap those big hands around...looking for a pattern...that uses the size yarn I have on hand....
Thanking you for stopping in....:)
