Workin' on a Washcloth
My friend, Audrey always says, "when in doubt, make a washcloth." This is excellent advice. Whenever I'm between projects or I have a multitude of projects in progress but have lost interest, I often knit or crochet a washcloth. This clears my mind, lets me practice a new stitch and produces a useful object that may have a future as a gift.
I recently purchased the Mason-Dixon Knitting book. Everyone has been knitting the "Ballband Dishcloth." I just love the brick-like pattern! This might be a great pattern to use for 'building' knitted houses! I'm always looking for alternative uses for my fiber collection.....maybe an acrylic village would be an interesting art installation?
Here's an array of the Ballband Dishcloths by the Compulsive Unraveler that I find positively striking and gorgeous!
Larry and I are going to the Dodger game tonight for the TNNA Stitch 'n Pitch night. I wanted to have a small project to take along, so that's why I started the washcloth. The Dodger letter that came along with my Knit-Night tickets specified that a bag larger than 14" or a backpack would not be allowed into the ballpark. OK! Small projects only! Got it. See you at the game!
