A Crafty Crochet Cloth

This is my first crochet project. The yarn I was given in class wasn't enough for a dishcloth, so I bought another cotton yarn. I've torn it out several times, and will be working on tension for a while, I'm sure. It's a satisfying sort of craft, and a dishcloth is fairly mindless, which is good sometimes. I'm not sure what's next, once I get the dishcloth finished. I did buy a soft, bamboo blend yarn with thoughts of making an ear warmer. And I've begun thinking about making a small rug for the bathroom, out of cloth scraps. I've got lots to learn first, and would love any suggestions on books, yarn sources, etc.

Laurie!

This is lovely!!! I'd be happy to be an information resource for you on anything in the fiber world. Where did you take a class?? If there are stitches, techniques, etc., I can help you with, I'd be glad to.............and if you just have questions, I'll try to answer those, too!
