A Dishcloth Rainbow

I'm so happy to share my dishcloth rainbow as my first entry in this blog!
If you crochet, you probably have made dishcloths at some point in your crochet carrier too! They are easy and super quick to make. Since I often crochet on my lunch break, it's the perfect project to take to the office with me!
I love working with cotton, even if it's a litte hard on my hand. I'ts a cheap yarn and easy to get in my area. I like both Bernat Handicrafter Cotton and Lily Sugar n Cream, They are pretty much the same to me even if I find Sugar n Cream to be a bit softer. As you can see I prefer solid colors. In fact, it's the only thing I buy... I really don't like variegated or twists.
People who know me well know that when I'm passionate about something, I feel the urge of buying it in every shade available (Thank God I don't care much for cars!!!!), so for weeks, I went hunting for as much solids I as could find at my local Walmart and Michaels and on Yarnspirations. Having gathered all those gorgeous colors, I could not resist making myself a dishcloth rainbow!

I havent decided yet what to do with them... keep those that fit in my kitchen decor and gift/sell the others... or perhaps make myself seasonal sets... because obviously, there is no way they will all fit in my rag drawer. At the moment, they just sit pretty in a big pile a in my bedroom!
Here is the link to the pattern I used. The only difference is that I don't do the embellished border and I use a size 7 (4.5 mm)
