I blame Mason Dixon Knitting. I got that darn book in a swap, and I love looking through it at all the amazing, beautiful home decor that I don't really have a home to put in.
Enter my Clapotis. I'm in the infamous third section, which is literally miles and miles of stockinette stitch. I want a distraction. I was at Joann with my mom, and on a whim, I buy a brightly-colored ball of Lily Sugar 'n' Cream. Summer Splash is the color.
I decide to make a dishcloth out of Mason Dixon Knitting. My grandmother knits nothing but dishcloths, saying that she doesn't want to tackle anything larger. I can now see why; after all, I've now finished two in as many days, and they are just so darn easy! My ball of Sugar 'n' cream is down to a tiny, sad little ball, probably to be used with the other eight balls of dishcloth cotton I ordered from Joann. *Smacks head*
That's the Mason Dixon Knitting one, and even though it looks sort of small, this is the size it seriously said to make it. It's also pre-use.
This one is from the Dishcloth Boutique site. I think there were a couple of mistakes in the pattern (Double Diamond one), but I trudged my way through it...
Oh, I'm using them as washcloths in the shower, as opposed to dishcloths. They feel nice to me.
Now there are visions of washcloth knit alongs dancing through my head... I need to do something with the cotton I just ordered!
