~ dishcloths & baby blankie #11b ~

I crocheted some dishcloths for my sister Julie with the Peaches & Creme cotton bought from the Dollar Tree.  The cotton I used for the round ripple dishcloth (which is called 'gumdrop') was bought at a different Dollar Tree - I behaved myself and only bought 2.



I also finished up the crooked ripple as a baby blankie. 
p.s. - I call it a crooked ripple because the points are uneven.  :)

  6. I love the blanket! The colours look so fresh and inviting.
    It's really lovely.

    Gorgeous dishcloths as well. The colours are wonderful.

    The problem I'm having with the peaches & creme cottons though Debi, is that the colours look washed out and fade so quickly once you wash them. Have you had the same problems?

  7. Thanks ladies - I always love reading all your nice comments. :)

    Hi Kim - yes, I've found that the cottons fade. I think it must have to do with all the different water treatments because I've read on other blogs and forums that their dishcloths color doesn't fade.

  8. Guess there's nothing really to be done about it then. I had wondered if it were just me. Although I now know of another friend who has the same problem as us as well.

    Such a shame though as they're so pretty before they fade.
