Under a spell?


Its this dishrag thing. Al is worried. "You're making aNOTHER one mom?" she asked.

I just want to knit more dishrags. I found the circular pattern, (he we go again I'm either knitting in the round or on the round) on The Mielke's Farm website. Perhaps I will knit dishrags the entire month of October.

So what? So what if I bore the few devoted readers I have. So what if I make everyone a dishrag for Christmas. So what? It doesn't mean I have to DO the dishes. I'm making great use of stash leftovers.

Others have had this thing with dishrags come over them. I've read about it on other blogs. My latest idea is to expand it with soft yarn and make one into a baby blanket. Except that would involve a yarn purchase.

Hmmmmm, where can I find a yarn shop? Vicki of Knitorious has a whole list of Wisconsin shops. Debra ofhttp://kitchencotton.blogspot.com/ and Diane the LURKER have given me Minnesota shops. I may just get on my broom and take off.

Did you have a troll doll?

Hey! I'm in MInnesota! Did the other Minnesotans mention the utterly fabulous Yarn Garage (www.yarngarage.com) in Rosemount? Kind of on the fringes of the Twin Cities, but a great, wonderful store with tons of yarn.

I occasionally get bitten by the dishrag bug. They are fast, makes you feel like you have accomplished somthing because it is done in no time.
Happy knitting

I haven't seen a troll in a long time. So funny!

I like knitting dish cloths. They are a quick knit and a great way to use up the stash.

I used to have some troll dolls, yours looks quite content there among your dishcloths. I don't think you will ever bore me, your posts are always fun and imaginative.

I like knitting dishrags - it makes me feel like I've achieved something! And it's always useful.
I'm sure I've got a little troll doll somewhere as well. I'm off for a quick dig around the cupoards.

The troll makes the dishrag come alive for sure. :-) Oh... as answer to your question... there is a letter on its way to you by snail mail. Hope it arrives this time.:-)

You knit as many dishrags as you want to, Kathy B Perhaps you can then start knitting them out of something soft and warm, sew them together to make an afghan! There you go! I used to have trolls when I was a kid...even those itty bitty ones from the gumball machines!

Anne said...

YES! I had many troll dolls. Wow, seeing yours took me back to the 70s in a flash ....

No I don't have a troll but I need to get one to have at my desk at work.

I like your dishcloth and your troll witch! I also remember tiny trolls, that you would get out of gumball machines...they never seem to go out of style!
