Happy, Happy Friday!
The Knitabulls Podcast group on Ravelry is having a May Dishcloth KAL. The timing has been perfect for me — a little break from sock knitting and a chance to replace some well-loved and worn cloths around the house. I’ve finished two so far and the deadline has been extended to June 20th so I should be able to knit up a few more.
Knitted Paw Print Cloth by Rhonda K. White
Yarn: Peaches & Creme — camel
Needles: US 7
CO 5.18.12, BO 5.20.12
I’m really pleased with how well the design shows. I added 2 stitches to each side for a larger border. If I do this again, I’ll add a couple of rows to the top and bottom so all the borders are closer to the same size. This is going in the gift box to be given to a special person later.
Copycat Dishcloth by Leah Michelle Designs
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease — violet
Needles: US 8
CO 5.20 12, 5.21.12
This cloth really could not be easier and the yarn is so, so soft. I’ll definitely be doing more. On both cloths, the first stitch is slipped knit-wise and the last stitch purled to make a nice, neat edge. I knit on this while I was visiting with my Mom and wasn’t paying close attention. The stockinette bands ended up being different widths. But hey, it’s a washcloth for me so not a problem.
You can find other finished projects at Tamis Amis. I’m headed over in a bit to get some inspiration for my next project.
Enjoy the weekend and the Memorial Day holiday!
