Next up - I believe that I mentioned that while I was home in August I met a lady who was crocheting at the eye doctor while waiting for her husband. We got to talking about crocheting and knitting and she offered to send me the pattern if she could find a written version of it. She had been taught the pattern from her Great-Aunt and it was the only crochet item that she could make! She could not read or write patterns herself but at one point someone that she new had tried to write the pattern down for her.
2 weeks after I got back to Belgium I was pleasantly surprised to receive the pattern in the mail! I put it aside after trying it twice and not having any luck on it. This past week I decided to try it one more time, and what do you know....the third time was the charm!
Here is my finished version of the dishcloth, done in a coral cotton that I bought in Spain 2 years ago that has been waiting for the perfect project!
I sent Lucile a nice thank you note for sharing her wonderful pattern with me along with a few snowflakes that I had made....she spends her winters down in Texas so I figured a nice reminder of what she is "missing" up north would be a nice way to say thanks! =)
