I recently made the Annie's Choice pattern from Knit Dishcloths, and I really enjoyed it.
If you can knit and purl, then you can make all of the designs in Knit Dishcloths and you'll probably be very pleased with the results. I think designs made from purling are so pretty in a simple way.
I tend to have dishcloths on the brain more than a healthy person should, but I only want to work on small projects during this summer heat. I love having lots of dishcloths on hand for gifts--I gave to my sister as part of her birthday present just this week!--and I just plain enjoy dishcloths. Once I like something, I like to make it several times. Obviously.
I'm so fixated on dishcloths right now that I overslept this morning because I dreamed I had woken up and I was working on a dishcloth.
I am completely serious. In this fairly realistic dream (as realistic as dreams are, anyway), I was super engrossed in this garter stitch dishcloth that was in blues and grays. It was kind of like a blueish version of a Doctor Who scarf. I know you knitters know what I mean. Even if you aren't a Doctor Who fan--and I hate to fall back on lazy generalizations, but I have noticed and enjoyed the fact that knitters really seem to love their sci-fi--you probably know what a Doctor Who scarf is because someone has probably clumsily hinted that they've always wanted one.
Side note: If this ever happens to you again, point them in the direction of this one and enjoy living the rest of your life.
Anyway, I guess I've been thinking about how the new Doctor looks like the versions of the Doctor before this new reboot and I'm always thinking about dishcloths and it's kind of been a long week and so that's where my subconscious took things.
Which is to say, too far. My brain always takes things to far.
And then I take things a bit further.
I cast on this way to use up bits of (TARDIS) blue scrap yarns as soon as I got home from work. It's not going to be scarf-length, but I'm certainly going to knit it until it's too long to be a square.
Happy weekend, crafters. Especially you Whovians.
