So. What are you seeing? Well, one straight edge -- on the right. One not-so-straight edge on the left. I think I lost a stitch somewhere along the line, but even though I added it back in further up, the piece refused to get back to its original width. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that my gauge evened out towards the upper half of the dish cloth.

But you know what? It was fun to crochet, and I'll make another one!

But first, I need to finish the baby sweater dress. Our friend is coming over on Sunday, there's no way it's getting done, but I need to get cracking. Because the owner of our LYS just called to let me know that the yarn for my sister's birthday sweater has arrived. Once I get my hands on that, I may not be able to do anything else for a while.

Don't tell anyone, but I find it hard to keep my edges straight when I crochet too. It looks nice anyway.

Knit Batty knit! You know that yarn will steal you away to another project.

Congratulations on your first crochet! I'm glad your arms are better :)

Yeah, you shoulda seen the baby "blankets" I made when I crocheted back in my tween years. Yeah. We shall not speak of straight edges.

Hey, when I first started to crochet, everything I made ended up looking like Italy!

Looks great. And yes, it does look like your guage evened up as you went along, which is a good thing. :)

Nice job! See, crocheting isn't too bad, though you'll need to watch your wrist action on this too as it can be more tiring than knitting for one hand than knitting.

And I'm anxiously waiting to see how your Samantha turns out.
