Welcome to the Think Pink Blog Hop!

It is good to have you here! Welcome to my blog as you participate in the Think Pink Blog Hop! 

You should have arrived here from Gypsy Paperie.  If you just happened upon my blog and would like to start at the beginning, see the list below.

After I decided to be a participate in this blog hop, I had to decide on the crafty item I would create for my post.  When I was in the craft store looking at their special display of pink items for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the yarn caught my eye. So, I picked up some 100% cotton yarn and decided I would make a pink dishcloth for my project and as a prize for one of you who comments on my blog. Here is what I came up with.  It was a new pattern to me and I hope you enjoy it.

For the random winner of the dishcloth will also go some a Fiskateer's Scrapbooking Tool Taxi.  I will pick a second winner and will send them a surprise package of goodies (yes you are right, I haven't finished my shopping!).

So, be sure to leave a comment to be entered in the drawing.  Leave a way for me to contact you. I will post my winners on Tuesday.  Good luck and have fun, fun, FUN as you hop along.

Here is that list again, just in case you have become lost!

My best friends mom made these for me forever. Unfortunately her hands are so arthritic she can't make them anymore. I've lost my supplier so I would be thrilled to have one you made! Saw your post on Fiskateer MB. Happy Fiska-versary!

what a cute dish cloth although how you could actually use something that pretty would be a challenge for me it might be on the wall as a decoration though. mallogoddes yahoo com

My mom made dish cloths and stuffed animals for me when I was a kid but I have two left thumbs for these projects. I have spoke to a local knitter about taking some lessons because my girls can make those popular scarves.

Bobbi said...

What a cute dishcloth. I wish I would have paid attention while my mother was knitting, I would love to know how to do it now and her hands are too bad to show me:( TFS

SweetSassyDiva said...

i can knit if my mom starts it for me! lol Maybe I could 'try' to make one. I tried to do slippers but, never quite finished them. my grandmother did crochet and i have a beautiful dining room tablecloth but, unfortunately it needs repair. considering she passed in 78 it's been here a while. :)

I really enjoyed participating in this blog hop! I am glad that we got the word out and hope that we helped to save at least one Mommy, Grandma or daugher even! The girls will thank you too! :) TFS!

I became a follower!
