While looking for dishcloths to make for housewarming gifts I came across this pattern and decided it would be one I made for one of my friends.

Well folks, I noticed something was amiss and decided to keep going and THIS
[IMG]http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q91/jmccrochet/IM001258.jpg[/IMG] is what it became. I looked at it and thought, "eh, I'll keep it an use it my kitchen." However, it has since become somewhat of a half doily for a sofa table on which I have all my family photos.

It cracks me up and I thought it might some of you too :lol

I looked at yours before I looked at the pattern. I thought, Oh, that's a nice shawl. How big is it? I have been looking for a comfortable shawl pattern and that looks like it might do. Don't you love it when a boo-boo turns into something good?

It's not very big. I would imagine you could just keep going with the pattern and make it larger, but I don't know what my mistake was to get to NOT look like the pattern pic. Right now it's about the size of a babydoll shawl. Good luck if you try

Okay, had to try to make a small shoulder shawl from the fan dishcloth pattern. I only planned on doing a little to see how it looked, but liked it so much. See what you think. And while you are at it, I put in a picture of a few of what I call spinners.

I should have been working on the things we will sell next week at Moody Air Force Base Exchange, but - no - I made something for myself. However, I will probably be using it, since most stores are so cold. Sure could have used it at Wal-Mart yeserday.

Well, your fan just wanted to grow up to be a semi-circle! :rofl That is one of those where, if you didn't tell someone what it was SUPPOSED to be, no one would be any the wiser!

Thanks, Joyce. I wore my shoulder shawl to a restaurant today, and was so glad I had it. Funny how things work out. The spinners were originally a potholder pattern. I changed the yarn to Luster Sheen and crocheted two together around old cd's then strung them on fishing line. Have them hanging from the canopy outside our camper.

Wow, that turned out great! The greatest inventions came about when the inventors were trying for something else, right?
