Pile o' Dishclothes and other miscellanea

Yes, I have a camera. You wouldn’t think it since I haven’t been posting pics. So here:

This is the pile o’dishclothes I’ve been talking about. Who would have thought knitting glorified gauge swatches would be so fulfilling? Well, it is.

I made these from the “pile o’ cheap cotton” that’s been lying in my stash for a while. I’ve never actually used handknit dishcloths before, so we shall see how they hold up. I was also partly inspired to knit cloths because my MIL was complaining about the thin, cheap dishcloths at the store and the lightbulb in my head proceeded to flicker…

My favorite ones are the garterlac dishcloth (above – yeah new skillz!) and the linen stitch cloth .

What you see here is what I’m currently knitting. It’s what I’m tentatively calling the “rib lace henley”. See my awesome sketching abilities? This is the back and I’m closely approaching the armholes, which should be a fun adventure. I’m being optimistic here.

1.5 weeks till Montreal!

Wow, that is a big pile of dishcloths!

Happy early birthday to you too! That's too funny that our birthdays are only a few days apart!
