As part of the Week 3 question, we are supposed to trot out our stash. Thank goodness it is only limited to dishcloth yarn, because that I can haul out and photograph in a snap.
So I decided, since I have such a limited amount of stash to at least dress it up a bit, since after it is knit, it is destined to a life of wiping plates and cleaning counters.
It is sort of a kick to get my knitting redirected, (with the wool ban and all) and I went back to my roots and knit the Grandma Dishcloth that so many of us did as our first knitting project.
The pastel colored one with the lacy rib is Textured Ribs, from the Nifty Knit Dishcloths booklet by Leisure Arts. I really like the Mini Cables Cloth in this booklet as well. The one I am currently working on is Bonbons et Calissons Dishcloth by SmarieK Knits. I'm using the Lion Brand Organic Cotton, and worked my first bobbles last night.
Though I am sort of shy about showing my bobbles in public, I thought you might like a sneak peek.
Or maybe I should rename this photo, KnittingGirl Gone Wild, because . . . well . . . I'll let you figure that out for yourself.
