Summer Projects

Ravelry Details Here

During the hot summer months, it's not very pleasant to be crocheting and/or knitting a heavy afghan or adult-sized sweater.  You do NOT want the weight of a warm, heavy object sitting in your lap, keeping you warm!  Ugh!  Smaller projects are perfect for summertime yarniness!
I like to keep a supply of cotton washcloths and potholders on hand for gifts.  The washcloth is the PERFECT item to create during the hot summer months.  It's usually made with cotton or a cotton blend.  It's small and manageable.  It's a quick project to finish....instant gratification!
I'm participating in this year's Annual Dishcloth Swap on Ravelry.  We have to make 5 dishcloths, same pattern, different colors by the due date, September 2nd.  You still have time.  Why don't you join us?
I finished this year's dishcloths (above).  I like this pattern.  I might make a few more to have on hand.  If you want to be fancy, you can call these "spa" cloths and pair them with fancy soap for gifties.  Lovely!
Here are a few more summertime projects that will NOT heat you up:
Ballband Dishcloth
Tapestry Crochet Washcloths
Lacy Cabled Sweater Washcloth
Starfish Washcloth

What projects are you working on this summer?
