St. Patrick’s Day Washcloth

This week seems to be all about getting some quick knits out of my system after struggling with long projects. Today I'm showing off this pretty dishcloth. Sure, St. Patrick's Day is long past, but I had this horrible electric green cotton yarn I wanted to use up and a shamrock pattern seemed a good... Continue Reading →

Delightful Dishcloth!

Sometimes you just really need to knit a quick dishcloth. This project was started mostly to keep me from casting on any new socks before June. I'm not sure if it worked as intended because I still really want to cast on some socks. I won't hold it against this dishcloth though. It's cute with... Continue Reading →

Second Colorwave Dishcloth finished!

I just couldn't stop knitting on this dishcloth, so it got finished in a hurry! I have definitely been enjoying the brioche stitch now that I'm more familiar with it. That bodes well for the cardigan I'm about to cast on. You can see that this second dishcloth (on the left) is slightly smaller than... Continue Reading →

Colorwave Dishcloth finished!

I'm very pleased with the way this came out. I think I may have messed up the finishing and bind-off rows a little bit but otherwise it looks really nice. More importantly, it gave me some good practice with brioche. This dishcloth used up just about half of a ball of Dishie, and I think... Continue Reading →

Colorwave Dishcloth progress

I'm definitely hitting my stride with this pattern now. It was late in the evening before I finally started to get the hang of those all-important yarnover + slip stitch combinations you need for brioche. Now I can do that with one fluid motion instead of fussing with the individual steps. This does feel like... Continue Reading →

Colorwave Dishcloth started

I have my next sweater project all picked out, and it has been taking most of my willpower to keep from casting it on right away. However, the pattern I chose uses brioche, which I have never done. So I'm going to make a few small projects like this dishcloth to practice some of the... Continue Reading →

FO Friday: Delightful Dishcloth

It's always nice to have a super quick project after coming down from making something big like my sweater. I started this dishcloth earlier in the week. I wanted something mindless that I could take with me to my first vaccine appointment. This filled that need perfectly, and I got more than half of it... Continue Reading →

Easy as Pie Dishcloth

I wanted to use up the scraps of cotton I had left over from my tea towel so I decided to make a scrappy dishcloth. The pattern is the Easy as Pie Dishcloth, and honestly... I don't love it. It was definitely easier than the Seamless Circular Dishcloth I've made many times before, but it... Continue Reading →

Placemat started

I got it in my head that I wanted to make some placemats to use for xmas dinner. The only placemats we have are either cheap plastic ones with sea creatures on them, or extra fancy ones that were a wedding gift. My plan is to make some with red and white stripes and some... Continue Reading →

And Another Gramma’s Dishcloth

I've still been struggling a bit this week, just missing Mom and trying to settle into the gloomy weather. Usually fall is my absolute favorite time of year, but it's been harder to enjoy this one since we can't really go anywhere. So I've been knitting up these dishcloths with this much more spring/summer colored... Continue Reading →
