Plum Doily

Found this doily in my stuff. I finished one round and without a pattern I did the final round to finish it.

Size "F" hook (it was with the thread.
Yarn: Red Heart Fashion Crochet Thread Size 3, Color Plum

Ripple Ridges Dishcloth

Changed: first row to 20 stitches because I crochet loose. First row changed to double crochet. Edging is two rows of single crochet, first row in pink.
Used a cone of Peaches and Cream and a touch of pastel pink.
Size "H" hook.
Pattern: Ripple Ridges Dishcloth by Haute Kippy by Bethany Sypolt 

And a close up:

Springtime Shawl

Using up stash yarn. This is a very quick pattern and might work for charity shawls needed in a hurry or gifts needed in a hurry.

Pink camo is a Red Heart Super Saver. I'm sure the solid pink is as well, no label.

I used a size 'I' hook.
Pattern: No Stopping Me Now by Marly Bird

The start:

And what I had left over in yarn:

Blue Ombre Shawl

Autumnal Triangle Shawl is the pattern name. 

Yarns in stash. I’m sure all Red Heart Super Saver.

As I was making this, I thought this would be great in the winter after a shower and it's a bit cold.

Size "I" hook.

Chocolate Mint Dishcloth

Simple Dishcloth, Practice Single Crochet (Sc)

19 stitches across. Moved ends up as I worked.

Reminded me of chocolate mint candy. I didn't have any while working on this and was craving it for a while after... 

Yarn: Peaches and Cream in Mint and Dark Taupe. Less then half a skein.
Size "I" hook.

My " Simple Dishcloth, Practice Single Crochet (Sc)"

Used a cone of cotton I have.
I changed the stitches so I could make it work for me as I crochet loose and just had a size I hook handy.
I ended up with 19 stitches. I started with row 2 to make sure that I had enough chains. I ended on row 2 as well since that makes it a square.
I did a sc edging with 3 sc in each corner.
I’m thinking this pattern works better with 2 different colors or shading. Or a long variegated might work. It’s not bad and I can add it to my cotton cloth stash. 
It looks a bit wonky because I didn’t stretch it out to a square and just finished it. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

Yellow Cotton Clothes

I bought a large cone of yellow cotton yarn. It's called "Sunshine". I wanted more yellow cotton clothes for my bathroom which is blue and yellow.

This first is the pattern from the label on the cone. It's a basic solid granny square.

A similar one, but I added a boarder from "Around the Corner Crochet Boarder" books:
