My Patriotic Series

I got my yarn today and I am ready to start a new project or maybe I should say a series of projects. I am planning a 4th of July series, dishcloth, pot holder, hanging towels, placemats, coasters and napkin rings. I ordered my yarn from Herrshners. It is called Red Heart
Eco-Cotton Blend. It is made from recycled materials. It is 75% cotton and 25% polyester. It is soft and I think it will be easy to work with but it not bright. The colors are the faded type. I always think the flag colors should be bright. I've started the dishcoth. When I finish it I will post it.

I've done a little web surfing lately and I've found some interesting sites. I thought I would share them with you. One is This one has lots of dishcloths. Some are gorgeous.

Another is This one also has free patterns, videos, tips and links to other places.

Look the sites over. You may find things that interest you.


  1. The lace pottery on those sites is absolutely beautiful! I wouldn't have thought such a thing was possible.

  2. That's going to be a nice set. Thanks for the links. I'm always looking for new patterns.

  3. I was wanting to do something patriotic as well once I finished with the baby blanket. :) Though I doubt mine would be finished in time for 4th of July. But you never know since it's only been one week and I'm almost done with the baby blanket.

    As for the faded coloring then it might end up working out cause it would give it a slightly antique look to the items.
