Knitted Picture Dishcloth Rooster

Picture Dishcloth Rooster

Bringing back the memories! Way back in 2005, I taught myself how to knit with an instructional book and the Internet.
My first project was a dishcloth with a rooster, "Rodney". I used the wrong type of yarn (acrylic instead of cotton) and I am sure the wrong size needles.
Now 6 years later, I've done another one. This time with the correct type of yarn and needles. Welcome home, Rod!
This handknit dishcloth is available at my ArtFire studio:

Today I finished a sunflower picture dishcloth and am now working on a dishcloth with the State of Arizona.

I will be accepting custom orders of state dishcloths in your choice of colors. $3.00 each plus $2.00 shipping for first one and $1.00 each additional requested. All 50 states and the "USA" are available. Email me with your requests DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY until your order is complete! Mention scrubber and get an acrylic yarn scrub dishcloth free!

These dishcloths are incredibly durable. One I have been using for over 2 years is so beat up and abused and looks horrible.

Baby Face So Surprised Suzie - those wascawy wabbits!

Suzie and I went out to the garden yesterday afternoon to check on how things were looking. Mom can't seem to keep it watered well enough, but .....

Little Miss Suzie insisted that she wear the "New Old Clothes" I made for her, since it was so hot outside and she feels like such a big girl when she gets to wear her bra tops.

Lo and behold! What did we find? A wabbit was eating the corn stalks! I simply couldn't resist getting a shot of dear little Suzie's surprised look!

The outfit was created as a part of a recycled outfit challenge in a doll group I belong to. I used an old pair of my jeans, an old bandana and some scraps of lace hanging around waiting for a small project. I have enough of everything to make several more bell bottoms and bra tops. maybe a halter top and a pair of shorts?
