I’ve been flipping through The Knitters Life List. It’s a nice book, but maybe not so great for a beginner like me. The pictures are pretty, but the lingo and all of the patterns and the people that created them goes right over my head.
I found this waffle knit dishcloth pattern on Ravelry a couple of weeks ago and it looked simple enough so I tried it.
I wish I knew the color of the yarn…it was in a bag of yarn I purchased at a garage sale a while back.
Of course, I knitted where I should have purled and purled where I should have knitted. There are about three rows where I messed up completely on the pattern, but I just kept going. I had this dishcloth on bigger aluminum needles, smaller needles, and lastly my favorite
and only pair of bamboo needles. There was no way I was ripping it out and starting over again! I do want to make more because I really like the pattern and it was fun to knit.
The second one is a seed stitch dishcloth. At least I think it’s called the seed stitch, or is it moss stitch?
Anyway…I’m using a peaches and cream in sweet pea stripes. I’m loving the colors and the drape of the yarn….it reminds me of Spring pastels. I just cast on 40 stitches and I’ll block it when it when it’s the size I would like.
Still knitting away on the skirts. It’s funny to me….never thought I would knit then I started….never thought I would have more than one project going and now I have three on my needles.
