Cups with Coffee/Tea and a Mitered Blossom Dishcloth Series | A Summary

  For June, I thought it would be fun to see how many days
I could make and post a coordinating

 Mitered Dishcloth
 and 
Cup of Jo' or Tea

I went for two weeks solid...crocheting every day!
(That's not necessarily unusual though. πŸ˜‰)

Here's the collection of all 14 dishcloths and mugs:
Do you have a favorite?

Mine is either the Blueish-Gray Stoneware version
 or the Pip Studio Rose Hip Tea version.
I think I'm pretty well set for gifts for a while,
although a few of these are likely needed to replace
some older ones in my kitchen. 

Pattern: Mitered Dishcloth Pattern

Found at the following 
Apple Blossom Dreams Shops:



Yarn: Scheepjes Catona
 You can purchase this 100% cotton yarn
 by clicking on Love Crafts at the right of the screen.
I love this yarn for this project as it stays colorfast washing after washing
and the colors never run into each other. 

Apple Blossom Deams will receive a small commission
 on purchases made via this link; however, it is at no additional cost to you.


Thank you for following along for 
 14 days of Cups and Crocheted Dishcloths!
